I Finally Did It!!!!..This is the year for 'Change' For Me!!

My First Post and an Introduction

Hi Ya'll....

Welcome to my blog. I’ve been thinking of blogging for some time now; but never had the spare time to devote to it. Instead.. I got hooked on reading other folks blogs.

My name is Chef Lynn Ware and I’m the Personal Chef/Owner of Custom Gourmet Solutions, LLC, a personal chef service in the suburban Atlanta, Ga area..

I recently resigned my Financial Analyst position at a major corporation after 11 years of employment!!! This was the second most major decision that I ever made in my life (the first was my decision to divorce my ex-husband). I had planned for this day for the last 3 years and feel good about my decision.

Dealing with the daily stress of corporate politics, never ending work days and deadlines, I began to hate who I had become. I was unhappy, angry and hostile and chronically sick all the time. I wasn't satisfied with the way my life was going professionally nor personally/romantically. I went into therapy, and discovered that it was ok for me to move on to the next chapter of my life. After a couple weeks of detoxing from 'corporate life', I began to realize that I was caught up in a "20-year trance" where my life was driven by a blind commitment that had stolen my life away. After much prayer, planning, and faith, I decided to say yes to honoring my self and to make my dreams a reality.

Hope you’ll stop by regularly to experience the journey with me!!.
