Coffee Talk: October 2013
im not sure why, but ive been completely inspired to make something out of my writing for good. I feel like I have an interesting life and a lot to say. my analytics app even started working again and to my surprise, people actually still read this thing!
the hardest part of a big project for me is starting it. ive attempted to write more as of late but since things are not EXACTLY the way I want them, I tend to throw in the towel before the workout begins. i always do this to myself and end up missing out on potentially great opportunities. things are getting more stable at work, and though I have a lot to do everyday, I am taking care of myself better which means I have more energy to focus on personal projects. hence, this post.
ive seen a lot of these “coffee talk” posts out there. ones that pretend you and your readers are on a coffee date after a long time of not catching up.
so, if we were on a coffee date, id tell you . . .
that I plan to get my shit together on this site. I want to re-design everything to fit my current life. I want to talk about things that inspire me (food, cheffing, personal finance, universe ramblings, hawaii, etc.). I want to have a connection to awesome people across the world again. I want to use this blog as a platform to launch different projects. I want to take more pictures and share share share.
that I have started to make a REAL positive lifestyle change in my health. since I now have a kitchen and have been working as an executive natural foods chef, I have access to all ill ever need to finally make the changes I need to feel like my best self. last year while I was working as a chef for cancer patients, I learned so much and came up with a holistic purification cleanse that I made up on my own. I followed it for 3 weeks and had amazing results across the board. I kept all the paperwork and checklists I made as well as my notes and found them recently. my plan is to do this again this year starting november 4th. ive already started implementing a lot of the tasks ill be doing to lessen the detox effect. im super excited to give myself a strong foundation and share the process.
that I feel re-inspired about my work. the last 1.5 months at work have been a life changing experience for me and have forced me to question what really makes me happy. now that things are finally heading in an amazing direction, ive been able to experiment with my craft of making healing foods with a twist. I love the creative process and it feels great to get back in the game.
that I am finally leaving the island to go . . . on another one. mikes birthday is next weekend. we’ve both been putting in major hours at work and decided to escape for the weekend to maui. I couldn’t be more happy about spending some time in a new place and also to come back and be looking forward to spending the upcoming holidays with the love of my life.
off to brainstorm about design . . .
