Lessons in life… from the kitchen

I’ve mentioned here before that I am in the process of starting my own business.  I will definitely have more to share with you all very soon, but in the meantime I am weeding my way through IRS tax tutorials and a plethora of website headaches.  I thought it might be fun to take a break from my usual recipe posts to share with you a few lessons I am learning (and re-learning) in life right now.

  • We all have to start somewhere.  No one was born knowing everything.
  • Be kind to yourself because you are your toughest critic.
  • Know when to outsource.  Sometimes takeout can be your friend.
  • The best culinary inspiration doesn’t always happen in the kitchen.  It’s important to step away and take breaks because breaks are what give us perspective.
  • Be kind to others.
  • Overeating does not relieve stress.  It only results in bloating and a stomach ache.

  • Laughter, good food and sun might just be the best medicine.
  • Have compassion with yourself.  We all make mistakes and mistakes are how we learn, grow, and do better next time.
  • There are times when it’s important to keep going.  But there are also plenty of times when it’s better to compost it and start over.
  • The best things in life are free.  But plenty of good things in life are worth paying for.
