power of the post-it.

This post is not about cooking, but it is. Sorry in advance. This week there are no tips and tricks. No healthy eats. No recipes. In a week where I was trying to be more focused then ever, I’ve lost focus. Sometimes life is like that. My room is adorned with post-it notes with quotes and sayings that have particularly stuck in my mind for times like this.

They are a constant reminder to move forward; everyday before I leave my room I am reminded of the words, they help center and drive me. Never underestimate the power of positive thought. I find myself constantly reminding my friends what you think is what you are, and what you speak is what you become. It is a grand overarching life concept, but one that works especially well in the kitchen. People often become overwhelmed before they even step foot in the kitchen; the shopping, the cooking, the following directions, the cleaning..I’m getting tired just typing about it. Because even though I’m great at giving pep talks to others, sometimes I have to remind myself.

I have one post-it that changes everything.

Yes, in theory the whole point of cooking is to have a reward, a delicious meal at the end, but sometimes the process can be just as fulfilling if you let go of the prize at the end. Much like life. Take a risk. On a day where you’re not starving and have some time, get lost in the grocery store, explore new ingredients, turn on some music. Get inspired.

Enjoy the journey.

my life has been a very interesting journey thus far. in my quarter century crisis im and not certain of much except that i love cooking and entertaining, and pleasing people is my passion. (wait that sounded a little funny) i am goofy eccentric, and love to laugh, in fact i often laugh at the most inappropriate times. i place high value in honesty and working hard. i don’t really believe in faking it until you make it, without some base knowledge or some sort of depth to your cause. i believe in making mistakes and trying everything once as long as you bring yourself no harm and no harm to others. i am a new age hippy, my words to live by are freedom, serenity, and love. i look for signs of the world and listen. i do judge, anyone who says they do not is a liar, but i use my judgements against you to reflect back on me to see how i can better myself. i hate constraints of our society, including grammar, punctuation, and recipes. i think fast except when it comes to numbers. the culinary world has always been and shall be my safe haven and outlet. i want to inspire, teach, and learn.
