It’s been a while since I’ve thought about blogging. Instead of writing, I’ve been working, getting a promotion, working, and yes, more working. I’ve also been making plans and living in the moments of my life. I have found that working keeps me balanced in a way that I find therapeutic. When i work, I cannot solely concentrate on myself. My focus is on the task at hand; serving the public. I’m not saying i don’t have things going on in my mind. What I am saying is that my focus is not on myself, therefore, I don’t obsess, worry. It’s very liberating.
Since my last post, I’ve lost a dear loved one. ALthough we often didn’t get along, this person was a major part of my life. Always encouraging me, telling me how proud they were of me, they gave me the courage to face my life with a sense of confidence. Losing this person gave me clarity about my path. The month of May was a turning point month. May was the month I saw this person suffer and pass on. In May, I made the decision to follow my dream: Owning my own food service business.
I have made progress in making my dream a reality. First step: Move towards a supervisor role within the company I work for. I got the promotion needed to achieve my ultimate goal. It’s a hard and challenging position. I am not taking this new role lightly. This role will aid me in obtaining the skills to manage my own employees in the future. RIght now, learning to perfect the skills I need to be successful in this new role is paramount. I do experience negative thoughts from time to time, wondering if I made the right decisions. HOwever, I remember what my loved one used to say to me, and I keep going. I keep working. I keep planning. I keep winning.
