So over the Last few years I have been working in the downtown Boise Idaho area. I have wrote before about my experience of cooking at Solid as I was going through the Ada County Drug Court program. I am truly grateful for everything that the owner of Solid has done for me. I am not so sure that I would have been as successful in drug court with out his support during and after I graduated. I have been on this path for some time now.
I have been bartending at LIquid Laughs, the only real comedy club here in Boise for the last few years and I have had the opportunity to manager the bar. it has had its challenges. i have not at all been tempted to fall back into my old drinking habits. The desire to drink is no longer there. But the night life scene has been wearing me down . I
It seems the universe knows certain things without me ever having to even put it out there. I have been given another opportunity to grow and learn a new trade. I had been feeling like I have about had it with the bar scene. I am great at putting on the smile and providing people with a safe place to set aside their worries and concerns even if it is just for a couple hours. But it is super exhausting. Not really physically, but more so mentally and spiritually. The last couple of weeks have also been a mixture of slow and crazy busy. When it’s slow I haven’t been able to rely on the monetary stability that I have gotten used to. When it’s crazy busy we have had to have more bartenders on which also has an affect on the monetary stability.
I had been listening to a JIm Rohn Talk recently and he talks about how geese only fly south. What if south doesn’t look all that great? It wouldn’t matter, they would still fly south. But human beings are not contained by things such as that. We can grow through what we go through. If we don’t like where we are we can move. To be able to change our conditions we have to realize that we are in control of our position.
I am so excited to be taking the steps of this new path.
