Its Hospitality Hunny....

"...if you don't believe that knocking on 100 doors will get you what you want....then knocking on 100 doors won't get you what you want....you must value you goals...value what you do....believe in your craft..."

Hospitality is soooo me....I live it every single day....in every aspect of my life....profession included....and this profession of Hospitality has opened so many doors and allowed me to meet so many new...interesting....one of a kind people....real talk...I am so very thankful for all the love...fun and memories that the Hospitality profession has provided....BUT....I really don't think....in fact I know that there are many people in the  world and in the profession that neither know nor care to know what that word really means....and upon looking up the definition....I myself learned some things....it reads "the friendly reception and treatment of guests or strangers"....as well as...."treating guest and strangers in a warm, friendly, generous way"....in today's world it is certainly not easy to treat strangers and sometimes even your own guest  in a warm, generous way....it's a crazy world and at times people can be very self-centered and unkind BUT there are a lot of gems...a lot of beautiful people...who live in those definitions and as I spoke of before....I've deff had the pleasure and blessing of meeting some of those people so its most deff been more good than bad....Most Deff...!!!

Through-out my years in the field I've worked with many...many people and it super confusing to me when I run into those who truly dislike the industry and almost work hard to give the bare minimum....simply forgetting to treat others as they want to be treated putting no effort on their side but expecting one million percent effort coming back their way....I almost feel bad for them....they are not going to reach their full potential because they are not in a setting that makes them want to learn and grow and I know we all want each other to reach our full potential.....One thing about the Hospitality industry...it has many...many levels and I've had the pleasure of working...learning and enjoying the restaurant side of things.....and the journey has been a great one...full of variety...experiences...great money and great people....

One of my favorite parts of the restaurant side of hospitality is the power behind a good, generous meal...a warm smile and a few kind words....it truly turns strangers to family...makes guest not want to leave....I do it for THAT....for the simple difference I can make through my food..my service...my effort and usually...cause we are all human....made in God's image....people respond accordingly...those moments make it all worth it....I should also make clear that I enjoy that aspect of things on both side of the fence so to speak....the customers and every last one of my lovely co-workers through-out the years.....but again...it saddens me to see those in the industry...in the field who dislike their job...their life and want to make sure every one reads it all over them....we all know misery loves company hunny....!!

I really encourage all to Do WHaT ThEy LUV.....always....in all areas of life....have only "things" that you love surrounding you....but u must know...must remember that those "things" will change...it's crazy how that works... the bible told us so I guess in retrospect its not crazy at all....Ecclesiastes 9:11...."time and unexpected events over take us all".......we must be ready to change with it....ready for those "unexpected events"....those things we thought we loved....things  we no longer love...so jumping back on subject....if it's a job you dislike....change it....ONly Things You Luv...always remember that....
