Pursuing my dreams and my passions has been tiring and has kept me extremely busy. I enjoy the challenges and the opportunities it has opened up for me. I’m tired because there is so much I have yet to learn and do, my mind races with ideas, hopes and dreams of the next step to accomplish and how in the World to get it done in the amount of time a person can physically do in one day. Yet oddly enough, it has been the fuel to get me going. I still wake up at 3am and can’t go back to sleep because my brain won’t let me, try as I may to go back to bed…I just lay there trying to calm my mind…counting sheep, meditating, telling myself to relax and slowly sink into bed, tensing and relaxing my muscles…ugh, still, sleep escapes me and I have to get up and do something about it. So in the wee hours of the early morning, I’m up even before the birds start chirping and the morning light awakens the Earth, signifying a new day.
While my family sleeps, all cozy snugly in their beds, I’m at the computer writing this letter and dreaming about the possibilities that awaits me and praying that I see it coming and seizing it before it’s gone. What have I been up to? Where do I begin?!?
Let’s take one thing at a time…since I like to be around food so much I recently applied for a job to be a chef and help around the kitchen. I just completed my first week of work and I am loving it! Sun Market Asian Deli/Grocery store is the name of the establishment. I’m learning to cook the way they want me to and learning some new techniques in the restaurant business I would have never known if I didn’t have this job. The owners have been nothing but kind to me and are willing to work around my schedule with two kids and all. They too have a young child and value the importance of time spent with family. I’m excited and happy to go into work, but miss being with my children greatly. I know they are in good hands and am very thankful to have my mother and father -in -law help when they can with the kids and to have the support of my loving husband Scott, has been wonderful. I love the concept of a Deli/Grocery store and am happy to have one in my area. It just recently opened and I’m super excited to see it grow. I hope and wish nothing but the best for this Mom and Pop kind of store. The couple that own it ( Kham and Xee Yang) are so nice and this is their dream, to have their own store. I’m very proud of them that they are making their dream come true and doing the best they can to achieve their goals in life. Click here
Having a job around food has been one of my goals and now that I have it, I can check that off my to do list, YEAH! Onto the next goal which is getting more people to be aware of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and the Noodleonthat Food Revolution Facebook site. I’ve started that process…let’s see where it takes us shall we? To be continued…
Here’s a hint of what’s to come:
