| LOCATION: At the counter in the Kitchen of My Life, asking “What’s for dinner?” |
When people talk about answering the question of why they’re here, it always sounds like we expect it to be one thing.
Like, “I’m here to have dinner. Once I decide on, prepare, and eat that meal, it’s done and that’s all there is. I just want it to be “the RIGHT meal.” We put off grocery shopping or trying new foods, eating the same boring things every day or even fasting until we can decide on that One. Right. Meal.
A friend said to me today, “You seem to really know why you’re here. I’m so glad you figured that out!” with the implication that he was still searching and uncertain. I laughed. No matter how clear I get about why I choose to be here, I’m always still asking.
If we’re really honest, I think we always are.
I want to taste as many simple or gourmet, ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ meals as I can fit into this crazy go on the planet. And to share them with a lot of people.
There’s a purpose in there somewhere. 😉
