Hope you had a great Summer, because mine has been nothing less than…fascinating and heart crushing.
Yes, fascinating, it’s just been interesting, it’s given a good handful of change. Ups aaaannnnd downs. As another Autumnal season starts, so soon does another chapter. Chapter 32 (that’s how old I turned this June).
This Summer I ventured on a little trip to Portland with Emily, spent quality time with friends - HI LADIES! Got to spend some time with my beautiful nieces nephew and family, went on a trip to Mexico City (by the way it’s pretty awesome), and I have a few really great work/career opportunities that are blossoming. Then of course there were the days where it felt like life withered away in bed while I lazily gazed at the ceiling.
My summer has consisted of lots of food related work out side of a restaurant or commercial kitchen. It’s also been fairly quiet, with lots of contemplative days and nights. It’s odd to have spent the past few years as a line cook, rotating through jobs within the industry trying to find that groove. Often times wondering if I was on the right path. I think I finally found my groove. Between here and there I have spent time at the beach, chasing sun, figuring out new bus lines, reading Astrologyzone.com, and trying to find an affordable apartment or studio in San Francisco.
I often talk about balance. So strong have I been in trying to find this balance in my life, and it seems so much more elusive. More than anything this summer was learning about acceptance; validity with my emotions, career choices and self.
It’s all nice ol’ rickety roller coaster.
