This recipe came just when I needed it. Not only because we are making meatloaf 😂, but because it made me stop and think for a minute.
This morning has been one hit after the next; school closures continue (which I understand, but brings with it more stressors), an event I worked so hard to earn and the chance to hang out with my Team..not to mention a vacay to New Orleans, cancelled. Trying to work from home and stay focused while also helping the girls do some school work-near impossible with JK and Gr.1 students.
But then my brother sent me this recipe and it reminded me that just maybe we are trying too hard. We don’t need to be perfect and there doesn’t need to be “exact measurements” for things to turn out wonderfully.
Maybe we just need to embrace the opportunity to go with the flow and stop “measuring”. Do what you can, use what you have and make it work to the best of your ability.
Things will suck; it’s bound to happen, but how we choose to look at it is what matters. Will you dwell on it and let it ruin your day? Or will you sit with it for a little while, and then move forward?
I’m choosing to move forward (while still being disappointed, because a trip being cancelled sucks), and being grateful that we are home and safe.
