Day # 31: Consistency…πŸ•’πŸ•πŸ•‘πŸ•œπŸ•πŸ•›

“The law of flotation was not discovered byΒ contemplating the sinking of things, but by contemplating the floating

of things which flosted naturally, and then intelligently asking why they did so

– Thomas TrowardΒ 

I was listening to Boyz II Men a second ago and had to stop the press: these men can sing so beautifully. They sing so well, I feel like I can sing really well just because I am singing along. I love them. Always have. I admire their dedication and contribution to the R&B world. Really to the entire music industry.Β πŸ‘—πŸ‘—πŸ‘—

I am now wondering what separates their gift from their skills. Consistency. Focus. Dedication. Sure you can sing blindfolded and doing a backflip, but to know the name of the note you’re singing is also a blessing. Not to be passed up, knowing about and appreciating your gift is the full blessing. Takes consistency to learn. 🌹🌹🌹

Translated that into food: you can tell me to julienne some vegetables and place them in a salad. If I followed the directions, even looked up what julienne means I come forth with beautiful matchstick cuts, pleasing to the eyes. If I would pose one simple question (why would you have me cut these small strips and waste the rest of these vegetables) I would learn twoΒ newΒ things. First, same-sized vegetable cuts cook to desired texture evenly. No more “soft carrot here, surprise surprise carrot there.” Second, those large pieces of leftover vegetables areΒ notΒ waste.Β πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Chop, Chop!
