(wo)Man up

Growing up is a bitch. It's not my opinion, it's fact. I realize that all the struggles are just a part of the process. Otherwise, what the hell for? Submitting to the process is the pain of this growing up thing, isnt't it? Granted, I can be very hard on myself, especially when it comes to success; I tend to be very high strung and rather impatient when it comes the future I have planned. And patience is a virtue that I have yet to master. Growing up is a slow process, they say, but I feel like it's all happening so fast yet not fast enough. So far my 20's have been wrought with anxiety, uncertainty and failure; my fingers are still crossed for success. I have been told on a number of occasions to relax and just keep doing what I am doing (gotta love grandparents), but it's difficult when I feel like I have no idea what I am doing or where all this work is going to lead; but who does? I realize that lately I have been heavily focused on the negative, especially on here; and, looking back at my previous posts, 1 saying comes to mind, MAN UP. I need to (wo)man up and grow up. Although growing up is extremely uncomfortable, it's happening.

If I can give up meat, I can, most certainly, grow up.


  1. Now that you've said it, I feel like your grandparents when I say "you're doing fine!" LOL. But you really are. Your 20's are booming if you asked me. Look at all the good things that you've accomplished and established in the last couple of years. The BTH, Girls Club, Whisk, a Culinary Arts diploma, and the City Palate position (albeit new, pretty damn good considering the recent revelation to write). You may have sacrificed a bit of stability for these things, but they are grand!
