For some reason when I was driving today to the Northwest, I got the urge to fill this in!
As you probably gathered, I'm a truck driver for about 3 yrs now. Prior to that, I was a chef, (hence "chefm"). I worked as an executive chef for the government, until they laid me off, just before the recession! I used my severance to start a food concession business, but when the recession hit, I could no longer keep it, (or my house)! Please, do NOT feel sorry for me, because I am happier now than I've ever been in my life!
Change comes when it needs to...not when we want it to, or think it should! I believe that.
As far as "believing", I'm not religious, but when I'm driving thru the mountains, or along the coast, I find it hard to deny the existense of a "superior" being, (or "beings")that made it all possible.
I love the outdoors, nature, hunting, fishing, boating, hiking, and... despite my rough looking exterior, I like flowers, birds, butterflies, and everything else with it.
Meeting new people from around the country is a passion for me. I'm amazed at their differences, as well as the similarities. I'm the type of person who will do anything for anybody and not expect anything in return. So if I ask to meet you for coffee, or a meal...I expect nothing more than just a good time and conversation.
My greatest life achievement thus far is being sober for 20+ yrs. Although I have some remorse for things I've done, I have no regrets, since it is a big part of who I am today. I don't judge other people, for I know how it feels to be judged. I believe there is good in everyone, and I always try to find it...(even when it seems impossible) LOL. I also think that beauty lies within a person, not on the surface. (I was once married to a former model that turned out to be a very ugly person)
If you want to know anything more, just ask. I will answer you truthfully.
On that note, I'm not going to "wish you well", or good fortune, or any of that B.S. I WILL however, wish you "enough"...
I wish you enough sun to keep you attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life seem much greater. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your needs. I wish you enough loss so you can appreciate what you posess. And...I wish you enough "hello's" to help you through the final "Good-bye"
