In this year, I am starting a journey that should've been started many years ago. The only one who has stopped me from starting in the past was me, myself , and I. Is it going to be personal? Yeah. Is it going to be hard? Yeah. Most of all, this is going to be a journey that is going to make me reflect and face the very things in my most inner being that made me doubt every dream, every inch of talent and passion that I have in and for food. No matter what accomplishments I've had in my career, it has never been enough proof to myself of my abilities and what I can do. Nobody could make me see the truth that has been right in front of me all of these years. It's time to let God shatter the mask and the lies that I have created around me that for some reason have been my safety net. No matter how much I wished and wanted and strove, doubt and self worthlessness always were in the forefront. Food and Whatever and my career could have been in a whole different level and it's time for me to catch up.
Why am I blogging about this journey? I don't know if this is part my way to shed this doubtfulness that I have towards myself or if this is a way to share my story with others that might have the same problem. Truly, all in all, this is definitely out of my comfort zone; but this new way of trying to pursue my life and career is too. Let's see where God wants to go with this. It is one thing to try to make things happen in your life that don't belong, it is another to doubt yourself and the truth of what God says about how He made you. I understand that many may doubt the existence of God, but for me He is a huge part of my life and this journey. So here we go! I can not and must not falter. So here's to God, Food and Whatever, catering, being a personal chef, cooking parties, food, and to my husband, family and friends.
