The most spectacular thing happened yesterday.
I walked out of this restaurant:
And I did not look back. I marched on, head held high with happiness.
My itch has been relieved. A change has occurred and I am happy.
I spent this past week receiving a little taste of what 2015 will bring for me.
Being nanny will have difficult moments, but I think it will be filled with more meaningful and beautiful moments than cheesecake.
The restaurant industry has blessed me in many ways.
It began in 2008. I applied for a job at the YMCA and was accepted, but I wanted to be a hostess at a restaurant so bad that I practically begged for a position.
Thanks to a wonderful woman in my life, she called me up and gave me a chance and hired me after my first day. It became my first job and I have spent many hours, days, and years in this industry.
It has provided me with a way to live and get by, with lessons learned, opportunities to grow and become more assertive. It provided me with friends and a second family. It provided me with joy for a long time.
But as of lately the joy disappeared so I needed to part ways before I became too bitter to ever look back on the goodness.
Today starts the day of a new journey and I welcome it with open arms!
