psychic income.

1 May

A wise young man once explained to me the merits of psychic income.

“It’s a currency that can’t be spent, but can be put in the pocket of your heart,” said he.

I let the wise young man’s musings roll around my brain for a long while, and eventually, some two years later, decided to give psychic income a try for myself. All it took was a shift in my focus and a snap decision to let it go and Colorado became the start of my journey down the path towards my own psychic income.

 A few weeks back I mentioned in passing that I was interviewing for a new position. Actually, I think I wrote something cryptic like:

I have a big interview today. Details to follow…

Fast forward a few weeks and the details did, indeed follow. Turns out those particular details were delivered via an early morning phone call from my new boss, offering me the position of Front Office Manager at a local hotel and restaurant. I jumped at the opportunity and accepted the position on the spot, while trembling in fright at the thought of being the one in charge, the fearless leader, the “guru” when it comes to all things hospitality. HA I had them fooled!

But the thing is this, the hospitality industry is the first industry in which I have worked professionally, where I have a true passion for what I do. That passion in turn motivates me to work my ass off and increase my own professional opportunities and expertise. I don’t know if it’s because I am a “pleaser” or because I value the importance of travel or because to me the Vail Resorts mission statement is far more than a testament to a successful business model, it’s a way of life that I not only believe in, but want others to experience as well. But what I do know, is that somehow, during this experiment to discover whether a higher psychic income is greater than higher monetary income, my psychic income became a psychic reality that has somehow lead to real income. Not much, but just enough for me to feed my constant curiosity, addiction to adventure, and my pride in providing others with an “experience of a lifetime”.

I am 100% sure that this position is going to kick. my. butt.

There will be days where I feel like my head will explode if one more person asks me whether or not you can “ski in conditions like these” or I find that another group of frat boys are leaping from the hot tubs on the sixth floor to the hot tubs on the fifth floor. But I am also 100% sure that this is an opportunity that will solidify my position in the hospitality industry and will nurture me and push me to challenge myself to bring my confidence and passion to another level. 

On a side note, would you believe this little brat was too sick to play in the desert last week? #dramaqueen
