Just When you think you can Breathe…

Along comes another wave! This is how a business feels when it’s doing good things! Not only have I been busy since I “word of mouth advertising” announced that I can help businesses coordinate their events, but it has been an awesome adrenaline rush! These feelings bring back so many memories of my working for my Dad growing up in the restaurant business…I guess what they say is true, “you really never get it out of your blood” And I haven’t. I had tried for years, to not have anything to do with coordinating and planning anything to do with food, vendors, events, even attending events, (BORING!) But, to no avail, here I am, back again and this time in full throttle mode!
During my time that I was taking my many years long break from being a foodie, I still had some of my hand in it, much to my delight! Being PTA President, Publicity Chair and Cultural Arts Chair for the kids schools, kept me going and my love affair alive! I never really fully understood why my Dad was away so much for “The Restaurant” as my mother so fondly put it, but now I do. It is a true love affair with the rush of all the excitement of planning, coordinating all the vendors, creating a look and the feel of the atmosphere (whether it be for relaxing or giving in nature), the endless visions do not stop.
It is Sunday, the day of rest, and what was my mind thinking at 7 am in the morning, fundraising ideas for a new client I am helping to create ideas and helping to plan with a group….http://www.meetup.com/S4M-Community-Supporters/ Help me, Help them!
I know my visions and dreams will not stop, at least my dreams of opening a restaurant have dissipated for now, and I know my love affair with the look and feel of an event will live on! It’s exciting to me! It truly does not feel like work to me…that is what is driving me to always be better. I know my Dad taught me this indirectly, but I do hope to pass the passion and drive onto my kids and I hope they take on the world, like I want to!!!
Live your life, live your dream, it’s what makes us who we are!
