I was working from home today so I decided to make myself a nice lunch. I got rid of some vegetables from the fridge that were south of their prime, including leeks, asparagus and jalapeno. I sauted them and some cherry tomatoes in butter and olive oil and put them in the bottom of these cool shallow ramekin type dealies I got from a thrift store for like 20 cents. Then I halved an avocado and cracked an egg into each half, sprinkled salt, pepper, garlic powder, cilantro and cumin on top and baked in the oven. One of the eggs slipped out of the avocado half but, whatevs, still tasty.
I wish I could afford myself the opportunity to leisurely eat like that everyday. Its a true drag to have to rush to get to work and eat at my desk or in a depressing breakroom. I wake up every morning feeling fantastic and give the best hours of my day to a job. I don’t like that. I’m not thriving. Or living even. I’m just marking time until. Until what? I have no idea. But I have to make a conscious effort to get down to the business of living.
We get one life. ONE. It will never be this Wednesday in 2013 again. I’ve wasted a lot of time over-thinking, over-analying. I need to live and analyze later. Marriage, moving, new jobs, death, loss of friendships, divorce and a host of other things have kept me afraid and wary of…just getting out there. But its time now. Its time.
Here we go.
