The Key

It’s okay if cooking doesn’t bring you joy. Sometimes we have to do things that feel like a chore but support our best quality of life, like mowing the yard, doing the dishes, brushing our teeth, washing our hair.

I’ll let you in on a secret. About 90% of the time, cooking feels like a chore to me. But I’ve learned the ropes and I created a habit so it’s not hard or scary anymore. It took time to cultivate the level of ease and skill I have now. I’m sorry, but nobody is born knowing how to cook, it’s a skill that you must develop. Like all skills some people have more God given gifting right out the gate but you still have to put time into your craft.

Cooking is work and everything that comes along with it is work— ie. Budgeting, meal planning, shopping, dishes, clean up, leftovers, using things before they rot— work, work, work, work, work. Like a teacher on her 10th year of teaching, running her classroom, and spitting out lesson plans like a well oiled machine, I can do the same with meals, shopping, planning, and cleaning but it took time and a lot of trial and error.

Eating with family

My testament is one of consistency, not love. Persistence, not joy. The best thing about cooking to me is the way it makes the people who eat my food feel, that’s what carries me through.

Over the last few weeks I’ve received a lot of messages, “but you don’t understand, I don’t like to— cook, workout, drink water—“ fill in the blank.

And I reply with, “oh, but I do understand. How do you think I got here?”

Moving my body was a bill I had to pay every day to keep my body energized. Cooking was the tax for keeping anxiety, hormonal issues, and auto immune disease at bay. Drinking water is the 9 to 5 side hustle I picked up for skin care. And yes, all of it is work, but it’s working together to create your most epic life.

If the price is too high, the tax too much, or you don’t have the energy for the side hustle, you have two choices… you make it or you continue without it.

But don’t think that it’s easier for anyone else than it is for you. Thinking that way robs you of the power to change the situation. And the power to change lies entirely with you— that’s the key.
