What centers you? What’s the one activity that brings you back to yourself?
I have a few. I love to pray. I love to run. Even the thought of a Sunday afternoon at my favorite coffeehouse with a book calms me. However, I am most myself when I am cooking.
My poor Facebook friends both enjoy and grimace with hunger when I post pictures of my latest kitchen creations. To me, there’s no better way to unwind after work or spend a Saturday afternoon. At every possible moment, I don an apron, break out my cookbooks and get lost in ingredients. And while most times, I enjoy what I’ve cooked, it’s the act of cooking that is most rewarding.
Our days can sometimes be consumed with a lot necessary duties that we don’t want to do. You sit in traffic, pay bills, coordinate family schedules… I hope you find those bright spots in your day when you can come back to yourself and what you love.
