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.
For lunch, I improvised salmon tacos with what I had in the fridge. The filling was just lettuce, red onion, tomato, and carrots. 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.
