Ok, so I have been offered a full time position at a catering company as their pastry chef. I know this isn't my dream of having my own bakery, but it is definitely a step in the right direction and the owner is willing to teach me things I would never try at home. However, to have this wonderful job, I must give up my stable and secure job (just look at my quote and I'm sure you can figure it out! ) I am planning on handing in my resignation today, but am worried about the future. Don't get me wrong, I am also very very excited, but this is probably the first rash decision I have made since I got married (the whole thinking about the family thing). So, I guess this all boils down to, what has been everyone else's experience making the jump from real world to dream job and finally doing what you love? All in all, all I really want to do is do a little happy dance, so I guess thats what I'm gonna do!

Security can hold you back from learning how to fly. Let go and fly.
How often do you get the chance to realize your dreams? Go for it and the best of luck to you!
Now where's your quote?
Hmm... looks like my quote disappeared. so here it is!:
I have a half caf, quad venti, 2 pump almond, 5 pump mocha, nonfat, with whip latte ready at the bar!! (you think I'm kidding?)
So I just got back from giving my notice, and it went really well. Now I am really really excited!! Dream job here I come!
Congrats...I bet there are a ton of people here who would like to be in your position right now.
Question... so you are a barista? Well, then honey GO FOR IT. Theres nothing wrong with being a barista, but its not a career!
I'm guessing manager at Starbucks...if so you can always go back to that if your dream escapes you!
Take the leap, see what happens............
Good Luck at the new job!
Better to wake up in 6 months and say "I tried it" than 20 years and say "I wish I had"
We never know unless we leap, I'm sure your safety net is there!!
Best of luck to you!
Good luck....Let us know how it goes...
GO! I'd give a lot to be able to get this computer off my lap (I'm supposed to be working...) and into a kitchen/bakery permanently!
My quote to you would be...
NO REGRETS !!!!
You always have us to vent to and look for advise.
I love this site. !!!!!

Well, I have officially accepted the job and start the first of June!! yay Happy dance!! I am oh so excited. Thank you to all that have helped to sustain my going forward with this decision. For something that seems so obvious, it can be so hard! I truly admire and look up to everyone that has gone before me and made this decision, and has lived to tell about. I can't wait to continue on this great, and often delicious, journey! Happy baking, decorating and just plain creating to everyone!
