It is interesting what becomes clear to one when contemplating life and in looking back especially after being diagnosed with a serious illness.
No regrets…. But….
I have no regrets in life but I have become clear as to what is important to me and I have also realized what I have really enJOYed doing in my life. It seems to really surprise people when I tell them that I wish I did more of this!
I Would Do More….
I would cook with fresh and interesting ingredients. I would try more recipes! I guess this surprises people because I have cooked a lot in my life and I still cook when I can.
Cooking With Fresh Ingredients
Here Is The Difference
I always saw cooking as taking time away from what I could be doing. And that ‘could be doing’ was usually related to ‘work’ or to ‘working’.
Being a serial entrepreneur I seemed to always be racing to some imaginary finish line and I was and am very zealous and dedicated to my work and in helping other people. I love to help people and have found many different hats to wear to do that. But with that said it kept me busy so although I indeed do and have done a lot of cooking up until now, I would have done more of it!
This just tells me that in retrospect, it was and is really important to me! Food is one of the greatest earthly pleasures! I would not only have tried more recipes and used fresh ingredients but I would have also had more fun with it by allowing myself to do it more and with JOY! I would have been more passionate about it!
Unfortunately today I don’t have the same appetite or energy depending on the day, and all of this affects the enJOYment of food or in the making of food. I have been enJOYing food gifted to me by friends and family which has been lovely too.
My Main Message For Everyone Today!
What do you love to do? What do you put off doing or make excuses about doing because you don’t think you have the time or that you think you might be wasting time by doing it? Or that it’s not a priority. Maybe it is a priority? Maybe you really enJOY doing it? What is that? What is that thing? You know it. 🙂
I invite you to get clear and seize the day and start doing the very thing that you have just received answers and direction on. You know what they are, even if it is just one thing.
I love you all. Have a great day!
