Pacing Myself

How fast can I chop a box of broccoli

One of the things I struggle with in life is speed. I don't like feeling rushed or having to run to get somewhere (I moved out of New York because my inner speed stopped matching everything around me and it was causing friction in my life). I always seem to feel like I am going against my nature when I rush, and worry about this a lot when it comes to my kitchen work. I worried to the point of distraction and then last week I heard a sentence that really stuck with me: "You have to make peace with your speed..."

Hearing that really made me think about what I want my life to be about. I don't really want it to focus on how fast I can churn out food to people I never see. After all, I got into food because I wanted to share it with others and create community.

I also know that there is a difference between rushing around like a lunatic and moving with purpose. I don't even like using the word urgency because I think it should be reserved for more important things.

These are the thoughts running through my mind at present.

I want to move through my life with purpose...not urgency...and I am trying to make peace with that.
