Lately I have been thinking a lot about life. Where I have been and where I am now. This blog post is going to be quite lengthy... but I really want to share and hopefully inspire. I went to school for early childhood and special education. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I thought I was going to teach for the rest of my life. When that didn't work out, I started pounding the pavement... I didn't know what I wanted, but I knew I had to figure it out. I printed out dozens of my resumes/cover letters and went around town and knocked on doors. I ended up getting a call back for a front desk position at a hotel about 20 minutes away from me. I took the job and fell in love with the hospitality industry. I worked my way up and found the job of my dreams and the hotel of my dreams. I got the title I have been working for and the hotel was perfect. I truly was planning on retiring there or dying there... whichever came first. But come on... life isn't that perfect. Perfect job, perfect title, perfect location. That doesn't happen. Things didn't work how I wished they would. So where was I? Back at square one. I was completely at a loss. I was so broken that I really didn't even know if I wanted to be in the hospitality industry at all anymore. So... my choices were really start over or start over. I had to completely reinvent myself and let me just say... scary was an understatement. But I figured it out. Well... I am still figuring it out. But I absolutely love what I am doing and I will continue to love it. My whole point is... it is never ever ever too late to start over. If you don't like where you are, change it. I know... sometimes that is easier said than done... but we only get one life. We should all be happy with where we are in our lives.
