I am so proud of my husband. If you know Glenn, you know he loves to cook. He is happiest when he is cooking, or when someone is eating food that he has prepared. He’s finally decided to take an amazing step and go to Culinary school! I am so incredibly excited for him. It is amazing to see someone decide to give up what feels very secure and easy for something they LOVE.
It’s easy to let fear outweigh your decisions when it comes to anything in life, especially when it comes to a job. I would hate to see my husband get up and go to work for the next 50 years disliking his job just because he gets a nice paycheck. When you spend 40+ hours a week doing something, you ought to be passionate about what you are doing. I believe we were put on this earth to enjoy life…. how can you possibly enjoy life, if you dislike your job. I understand that we probably aren’t going to enjoy our jobs 100% of the time, but if you flat out never like it, it seems like a problem.
What does this mean for us? It means Glenn gets a divorce from Protrans, his first job out of school where he has worked for the past three and a half years, (the scary part) He starts school on March 8th (the exciting part) and works in a restaurant (the busy part). What about me? Oh don’t worry I will be getting a second job waiting tables probably…. because culinary school ain’t cheap. I’m not complaining though, because I am one hundred percent supportive and sincerely so happy he has decided to pursue his passion.
I love the lyrics below from one of my favorite songs, it really speaks true to how amazing letting go of your fears can make you feel. ALIVE.
“I know that I’ve been, given more than beyond measure, I come alive when, I see beyond my fears. I know that I’ve been given more than earthly treasure, I come alive when I’ve broken down and given you control.”
