i think that burger is going to be the only thing that gets me through this...
do you ever have those moments where you just can't shake your sh*tty mood? no matter how many gratitude lists you write, how many affirmations you tell yourself, no matter how much damn yoga you fit into your week to get away from your crappy thinking and connect a bit more with your consciousness, you just can't seem feel better? yeah. that's about where i'm at these days. and before you ask, yes, i've tried tequila. it didn't help.
call it my mid-forties. call it a rough patch in my marriage. call it a freakin' dog i was convinced i could handle without missing a beat and was wildly overconfident about. i don't have the answer for what got me here, but i sure wish i could cycle my way out of it. ahhhhh, come on sunshine, send some special lazer beams of light my way. i could use you right now.
thank god for catchy. having a door to walk through that lights me up inside these days is what will get me through. i've been here before. we all have. those momentary dark periods when life just seems to keep handing you sh*t sandwich after sh*t sandwich. but i know what to do, i just have to grab hold of the part of myself that trips the switch back to bright. my love of food & serving people has always been just that for me. thank god for the holidays and the excitement, busyness and fun that radiates from them each year. i could use nothing more than a dozen parties to organize each weekend to remind me who i am and what i love.
i'm so lucky i found the courage nearly three years ago to open the cafe. to take a leap of faith and decide that the catering business i had been nurturing for over a decade and a half had a place in this town, with all you people. cooking for you, bringing you & your families joy was, and is still is, what motivates me each morning (well, after my four *ss-kicking kids of course). and i know that this season and it's typical chaos will help bring me out of my spell and put a smile back on my face again.
