Day 16 – Slow

Slowly but surely… 

I really like this phrase. To me, it means that doing things quickly will take longer, which is why I always take the time to think and do things.

Cooking – for example. I’ve noticed that when I take my time to put a meal together somehow it is more delicious than if I make it in a hurry. Think about it. Today I cooked two delicious meals and they were both satisfying and yummy. In the morning I made a veggie omelet with a smoothie. I sliced the tomato, mushroom, and onion and cooked them separately. I whisked the eggs and added it to the cooked vegetables. While that was cooking, I put the fruits in the blender with some milk and blended it all.

It wasn’t, of course, the most complicated breakfast. But the fact that I took the time to do it was what made me enjoy it.

Plus, of course, pineapple salsa made with some greek yogurt. I smashed the salmon with a fork and put it on top of the tortillas with the rest. It really was good. If you are interested in seeing the results, go check out my Instagram story.

On a side note, has anyone noticed that days are taking forever to end? Yes, I know, spring is coming and days are longer, but that’s not what I mean. I mean that you do a lot of things and there are still hours left in the day? It is an interesting feeling. A feeling we wouldn’t be able to acknowledge if we didn’t have to stay home.

The days are going by so slow these days. I’m not complaining..I like it. And the fact that things have slowed down around us, I see as an opportunity to pause, think and enjoy the wonders of a calm and stress-free day.

  1. Wooow! Great! I felt very identified with this beautiful story of your day. And I agree with you that this is an opportunity to pause and enjoy “slowly but surely”…. Because in most of cases, we always say things like “I don’t have time”, “I would like a long vacations” and now we have to see this like an opportunity and not like a punishment.

  2. Everything is slow now. No rush, no traffic, no noise. Streets are lonely and the feeling is that everything has stopped. However I am agree with you that we have more time to enjoy a good meal, to think carefully and be more creative. The current situation is a learning opportunity for everyone.
    I have even time to enjoy your posts.

  3. On one hand I cant believe it will be week 7 already, but on the other hand, yes the days feel longer. But I kinda like it! Before, time was passing through my fingers. Now I feel like everyday I do something meaningful (to me, like trying a new recipe or playing a game with my family, or purchasing a book, online of course). That makes me feel better about everything that’s happening.
