Top of the Morning to You Food Lovers!
It is 3:13 in the morning and a FRYday…my favorite day of the week. I am up trying to make food label templates. So far, no good. It’s okay though, because during a coffee break I decided to log into my blog. It has been one hell of a year. From breaking through an alcohol stronghold to losing several loved ones in a couple of months, a minor slap in the face was not being able to write. I didn’t have writers block…I just had no access to the actual blog. Minor in the grand scheme of things, major in some moments because I needed to go back and read some of the writings for specific reasons. I thought the entire blog was gone. After completely leaving it alone for months, something nudged me to try again; and here we are. Sweet. 🙂
I don’t have much to say these days; I more so sit and listen to what is being said to me. All I know is that I am grateful for this day and the people who are in my life. I have shed a lot of toxic energy in the forms of people, places and actions. It has made room for more love and guiding lights. Less unneccessary competition and all other types of B.S. in between. My life has been forever altered and my heart and mind are working on ways to properly heal. I am learning new things while breaking old habits. Some days are spent under covers drenched in tears, while other days angels are pushing me out of the bed shouting, “Get up! I will help you.” Each day is real though. Winston Churchill said it best: if you’re going through hell, keep going.
It’s good to be back. No need to start over; just rebuilding my strength. My hope is that this finds you well.
May The Spirit of Your Mind Be Blessed,
The Smitten Chef 🙏🍷🙏
