Can I be honest? The last month or two has been…well, a bit of a whirlwind to say the least. Like, I just am not sure how we have arrived here, in FALL. I feel like I have been barely keeping up in all areas, work, home, my non existent social life. I have been literally repeating to myself “If I can just get through this week, next week will be better” for the last hundred or so weeks it seems.
Last week we were filming (wait for it….) our CHRISTMAS online classes. My brain is in full Holiday mode and my body is in Fall. No wonder I am feeling so all over the place. Its that feeling of overwhelm and lacking the confidence to get it all together.
Ah confidence. The feeling that, is sometimes shaky, often elusive, and always benefits from words of encouragement from those that believe in you most. My mama knew I was prepping for our upcoming cooking classes and I needed some more tips and tricks for the recipe.
So before heading out into the early morning for potato harvest, she grabbed a Sharpie and a cereal box destined for the recycle bin, and she wrote out everything I needed to know to help me pull off the recipe with confidence. Sometimes words of encouragement are spoken, sometimes they are shouted and sometimes they are written on the inside of a Mini Wheats box.
