Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
Took on a full time job at McDonald's in the beginning of high school and kept grades up.
Graduated high school, moved away from home, and started college, and took on a management position at Taco Bell.
I struggled to adapt to the stress of school, management, and marriage. I gained weight from emotional eating, not adjusting to change and marriage well, and not prioritizing important things.
Flunked out of college.
An epiphany! I was not happy with my life, so I started a diet and exercise regime which gave me more energy, higher self esteem, happiness and motivation to be productive. I re-enrolled in college!
Took on a management opportunity half way across the county and chose taking an RGM role over finishing school.
I moved closer to home due to a family emergency. Took a demotion within company to have a place on the team.
I was able to grow even more from stepping backwards and taking in a new perspective. I promoted into an RGM role, a MTM role, and now I am training for an Area Coach role!

Hurdles

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"Fast food is the bottom of the food chain. It's dirty and people who work there are people who have failed at life. If you don't fit in with everyone no one will like you. There's no reason to be so happy at work; stop being annoying. "
