A Bright Light...

When I feel myself get down about life or feel like I am not fulfilling my potential, I seek refuge in my work, my boys and my heart. My inner light. On any given day or night, I can be cooking passionately, digging deep within my soul searching for that special spark and touch in which to place respectfully and wholeheartedly on the plate for the guests to enjoy. I want to make a god damn difference in my time here, for if I don't, it will be all a waste. If I am able to function and breathe, then I want to exude my inspiration for others. I am only too fortunate that I am
 constantly uplifted in spirits and in my vision when I think of how lucky I am as a person. This way of thinking has helped me through tough times and helped me see the future with hope and clarity. This is what became of that search...
