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.
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.
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”.
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!)
