These posts haven’t really been a constant, and for that I am sorry. School has become kind of crazy with it being the last few weeks. I am also trying to find a job that I can use as credit for graduation from this school. Say a prayer for me if you don’t mind. :)
My mind has been doing this cute thing where it just races all night, and every night. So many different emotions have been making their way into my life recently. I feel like I am physically and emotionally being molded right now. I’ve kind of been making my way through the darker tunnels knowing there is light ahead. The process is bittersweet. I’ve made some choices that aren’t like me. Those things that punch you in the gut are labeled “mistakes”. Some people always dwell on mistakes, which I have been guilty of doing lately. Then there are nights like these, when you are forced to forgive yourself. God has forgiven me because He loves me. He thinks I am beautiful no matter what others think, including myself. There are some mistakes that are pure wake up calls. Obviously mistakes are called “mistakes” for a reason. But, I kind of have a different view on them. I will continue to make mistakes. You will continue to make mistakes. God’s love in endless. That’s the beautiful thing about all of this. Is it horrible for me to call them “Beautiful Mistakes”? Am I the only one who has had experiences with mistakes making me realize my worth? I feel such peace right now typing this in my apartment at 5:33 am. I know people believe in me, and I will never know or understand why I deserve that. But I am utterly grateful. God truly has a plan. He has shed light upon my life that I’m called to share. For those of you who do not see your worth, please, listen to me. You are worth so much more than you credit yourself to. God has a calling on your life, even when negative is sent your way. He wants you to come to him when nothing is going right. He will move in a way that will blow your mind. You need to only be still, and trust. Yes, trust is one the hardest things to do, especially in the world we live in today. But, there is beauty in the mess. You are that beauty! People need to see your smiling face to let them know everything will be ok.
Let’s be world changers together!
Blake also happens to have a lady friend, which also happens to be one of my best friends.
Seriously folks, these people make me blush, and I’m not even in the relationship. Haha.
ALRIGHT. I know you want to see pictures of food now. I don’t mean to disappoint, but I don’t have a lot of food pictures today. I do have a few fun pictures to share though. :)
Monday begins my last week of Culinary School. I should be in the real world working in a kitchen real soon. It’s crazy how fast the time has flown by. My classmates and I have a banquet coming up this Thursday and I will be sure to share those pictures with you all. I am so excited to see my classmates and I succeed. :)
I'll show you the food pictures first! :)
This dish is a Coconut Lime Sorbet bomb with port wine soaked pineapple and genoise cake. Garnished with a coconut dust, pineapple coulis, and a coconut glass. Delicious.
Remember to smile, you never know what person needs to see that little act of kindness. :) Love you all. See you next time!
