I’m In the Kitchen…again!

I am amazed and frustrated by the fact that we, as humans, need a constant supply of food for energy!


As soon as the day gets going, BAM!, everyone’s hungry and we have to eat again!

As soon we gain some momentum in our road trip, BAM! we have to find a place to eat!






As soon as you drop 2lbs BAM! it’s Christmas time again and time to pig out on all of the not-so-good-for-you goodies!



I really don’t enjoy cooking and the only reason that I DO cook is because I don’t want to hear my children whining about being “soooo hungry”.  If it were left up to me we would all eat an apple, munch on some carrots and throw back some almonds all day.




But Department of Children Services would probably have something to say about that!

To make it even worse on myself, I don’t feel right about serving my children pop tarts for breakfast, hot dogs for lunch and processed chicken nuggets for dinner.

Noooooo! I have to cook a balanced, nutritious meeeeeeal! If I don’t I’m tortured with guilt! a balanced meal

This means I have to come up with a shopping list, meal plan and then follow through…bummer!


My husband, on the other hand, LOVES delicious foods; ENJOYS eating and is a better cook than I am.  However, he only cooks 6-7 times a year because he doesn’t want to commit to the role of The Cook.

So I everyday stand around trying to determine how to get around cooking.  I waste an hour of thinking time everyday,  planning it and dreading it,  before I ever move into the kitchen to finally “do it”.

I hate cooking but my husband LOVES it.




And this is what I know to be true: If we all lived our talents without worrying about how we’re going to get paid; if we all operated fully in our gifts, without worrying about where it’s going to take us; if we all truly enjoyed the thing that brings us joy, without complicating life, the world would be so much better for all.

My husband’s unwillingness to live his passion impacts me greatly; and only God knows the impact that it’s having on him.

(Now that I’ve recognized and confessed this wasted hour, it’ll make it easier on me to move forward, woooo hoooo!)

Please leave a comment and share how NOT living your passion has affected you and your love ones.



To Our Mutual Success, Lady T

    I’m falling short and need to step up in many areas. But I try not to get down on myself and remember the postive things that I accomplish in a day.

    excellent post. I have the same challenge. And you are right, if eveyone lived their gifts it would be a wonderful world! I’m discovering my gifts and next year will be a better year for me.

      Millie I applaud you for moving forward but don’t wait until next year. You can make small changes TODAY. Never underestimate the power of choice. Choose TODAY.

    I know that I’m not living my gifts and it’s because of fear. If only I could get past it I would be an awesome woman like you! I may have to hire you as my coach!

      I would love to help you move pass your fears, it’s my specialty. Honestly, I don’t think I’m extremely gifted in this area, the truth is when you have someone holding your hand (and in particular after you’ve paid them some money) it’s much easier to move from one stage to another. Email me and we’ll have a coaching session together. Complimentary of course!

    Pretty insightful. I’m not living my purpose because i’m too busy. Is that a good enough excuse?

      Sorry Aubree, it’s not a good excuse. We are ALL busy. Hope to it!
