“As I’m sitting down Saturday early evening to write up a new recipe I created, I turned on a documentary to listen to. All the sudden a flash of “Yan Can Cook” is shown along with Julia Child and Emeril Lagasse. I think to myself, huh, I was just remembering old school cooking shows last night and thinking of Yan Can Cook on PBS or some network channel as a child.
As I continue to listen, the narrator starts talking about this man who is about to be introduced as a speaker and how he wrote several books, one of which is entitled “The Botany Of Desire.” At this point, I have a bit of a chill. With a slight turn on my chair, I glance at my bookshelf to see that book, a book I read in college English, a book my husband pulled out and placed on the bookshelf when we moved in, staring back at me. It’s almost eerie, almost chilling, when you seem to find yourself exactly in the place where you were meant to be. And in that moment, there is nothing to feel other than inspired.
My point is, sometimes in life you sit down or stand up to do something, and it just seems to click. It feels right. The stars align. The door opens. The universe points in that direction. Your past returns. You are reminded of a thought you just had the night before. Your doubts are hushed. Your time is rewarded. You feel like, “Yes, this is what I am meant to be doing right now.” And lastly, a sense of calm comes over you.
Whatever that thing is, whatever you started to do, DO IT! I believe in things happening for a reason, I believe in following your dreams and chasing after every last goal. If you love something, it will always be enjoyable.
When everything around you is pushing you towards something, do it. When your thoughts and actions fall into place, do it. When you have a want or wish, don’t wait, do it! Take your extra minutes, your day off, your ‘you time’ and work. Work hard. Work more. Work consistently. Don’t ever stop.
Just my thoughts for the day, now back to my show! XOXO”
I love that I found this and even more, what it says. I still agree with every word. Since, I’ve become a self-published cookbook author and write my own lifestyle blog. Along with the many other endeavors I spoke of recently.
So go and make your dreams come true. I’m telling you. You can! Happy Tuesday All=)
My books are proof of what can happen. Check them out!
