Time To Push The Reset Button
This is a picture of my Mom. One of the STRONGEST women I know. She taught me how to be strong like her. So in this Blog I salute my Mom Asia Moore. I miss you Mommy.
As I write this Blog I am numb. I have had a very trying, challenging and difficult week. All these things just let me know how much closer I am to my DREAM. My building's elevator has been out now for a little over a week. Imagine going shopping for supplies and having to drag(literally) most of the things up 5 flights for an event your catering for 300 people. I could not possibly leave them in my car. So I did what I had to and made several trips up 5 flights of stairs. I then had to drag the things back down to go into the kitchen in Brooklyn. Did I cry about it? No. I just kept it moving without being upset or distressed.. Staying calm and staying focused on the matter at hand. I have learned is not focus on the problem but to focus on finding a solution but remaining calm throughout the ordeal is KEY. I am so used to going from 0-60 in 60 seconds
I use a lot of butter in making my cakes, icing and cheesecakes so I go to my suppliers to only find out that dairy has gone up tremendously. FOR REAL??? There is no time to cry over any of this. I just had to deal with it.
I GRIND so hard that I sometimes have to push the RESET BUTTON. That consists of me shutting down and doing nothing but relaxing. That entails me maybe going out of town. I sometimes have to leave my working environment in order to regroup and get a fresh start. I know when its time to push that button. My body gives me signs and I pay attention to them. I have to. What I do is physical and rather than have my body shut down on me I shut it down and press RESET.....
