Do you know that feeling when you have your hands around a bottle of soda and you shake it so hard that you can feel the plastic start to swell? The feeling right before the top goes flying off? There is a brief moment of pause, like a calm before the storm. I’ve been that plastic bottle for almost 2 1/2 years now.
Tomorrow is my last day at the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. I enjoyed my time there, but after almost 2 and 1/2 years of encouraging students to follow their dreams and pursue their passion… it is time for me to do the same.
I’m not sure what will happen next, but it’s a big deal for me to step away from all that is familiar. It’s the first time I have taken a step with out a Plan A or Plan B. I am terrified of the unknown, and even more scared of failure. I just know that the top is off and I am ready to explore life without a plan. Life with creativity. Life with music. Life that is stress free. I know the things I want and want to do. 2013 seems like a good time to get ‘er done. I didn’t make a “New Year’s Resolution” this year, but I did make my “To Do” List and now that I will have my biggest one checked off… There are only good things to come.
