I haven’t updated you all in a while, but it’s been a quiet and wild ride.
The past few post school months have been hard, I’m not even going to sugar coat it. There’s been a lot of contemplation, trying to figure out what’s next, what I want my life to look like, where to go, the list goes on and on.
As I’ve been searching for what I want my life to look like now that school is officially over, I found a statement from a book I recently read that said, “value more of who you’re becoming versus where you end up.” Boy did that one hit home. I hadn’t had the words to accurately describe what the last few months have been like but it’s been a battle between staying true to the nature of myself and chasing the ever changing end goal while giving up some things that make me who I am. Needless to say, I don’t want to be the girl who is remembered by the accolades, letters on her chef jacket, or titles she held; I want to be remembered for my giving nature, kind soul, and for passing my passion for the craft onto others. That’s who I want to become.
I’ve decided to chase after that and if the accolades and titles come along the way, it’ll just be an added bonus! Maybe you’ve felt the same way, you’re chasing great things, but they’re changing who you are. Always choose the path to stay true to who you are, I’m not very far in, but I don’t regret it one bit so far!!
