Be careful what you wish for

Awhile back I had an intense urge to start working. I was in a transitional period of my children going to school along with after school activities. All of a sudden I was finding myself home alone all day. Throughout the years I would fullfill my creative drive learning about food and cultures. Although I had gone to culinary school for pastry this was the time that everyone seemed to be on a low carb kick (remember the Atkins diet?) This put a damper on the fun of baking. So I focused on learning food history, ingredients and techniques. Expressing my feelings to my husband about feeling like I needed an outlet for all this food knowledge I had started to wonder if I should start working in this field in some capacity. His response was " Be careful what you wish for." This coming from a man who appreciates a strong work ethic and runs restaurants where people are expected to work long hours and 6 days a week. THANK GOODNESS I did not listen to him and pursued my inner voice. I now have an awesome job where I feel like I am a strong contibuting team member.Valued and appreciated. People actually come to me because they want to LISTEN and HEAR what I have to say. As you hear throughout your life, you will have to make many choices along the way. Choose what does right for you and learn along the way. What am I choosing is right for me right now? What are you choosing for yourself?
