You know when you’re a kid, you want nothing more than to grow up and be an adult. No listening to your parents and living life on your own terms. By the time you turn 21, you can literally go to all the clubs and lounges you were trying to sneak into at 20, order cocktails and party till 7am. Then the next few years in your 20’s you’re trying to figure out your career and most importantly who you are. I figured out in my mid 20’s that I wanted to give cake making and decorating a try and this is where I find myself today. Hello 30!
After leaving my job earlier this year, I have been figuring out how to become a business owner and run Chicky Treats the way I envisioned. Now that I am a few months in, I can say I finally found some more clarity, with a ton of bumps in the road, but I’m happy where I am. I realized very early on that taking this risk was going to make me question, doubt, love, and reflect on every decision I made. You go through waves of emotions and since I am overly dramatic sometimes, I cried. A lot! These were all things that no one tells you when you leave your security to pursue the unknown.
I recently had my awakening and realized that I had to stop letting my head get the best of me. We truly are our own worst critics and only we can stop ourselves from reaching our full potential. Turning 30 meant letting go of the negativity, believing in myself and throwing a sick party!
My gift to everyone was my chocolate nutella cake and I was more than happy to make it myself. Everyone loved it and there weren’t any leftovers. That says a lot!So what have I learned? Turning 30 is a new opportunity to dream bigger, work harder and reach my goals. It’s a time to remember that it’s okay to mess up but it’s more important to move on. Thank you 20’s for all of the lessons and hello 30! I can’t wait to see what you have in store!
