I recently left the corporate world for a privately owned business where I will be feeding 34 clients 2 meals a day.
Instead of the nonsense of trying to do your job while people sitting behind a desk decide how you should do it, I traded in the headaches, the high blood pressure, daily drama and corporate interference for a peaceful,
low key, happy kitchen, where I get to do what I do best without some over-educated, seminar-trained, upper level manager calling the shots.
And since I am alone in the kitchen, I don't have to worry about things not getting done right, or not being done at all. Pots will get washed, garbage will get taken out, and the kitchen and dining room will be clean
and organized. The fundamentals of the job will get met without having to write up an action plan, or deal with incompetent or over-reacting middle management.
I took some time off before starting the new job and took my 9 year old step-grandson for the day. We went bowling, to the arcade, and saw a movie. As I was lining up a shot at a 7-10 split, I realized I was happy for
a change, and this is what living life is all about. :)
Never give up on trying to find happiness
Take care and God bless
