It’s Tuesday morning and i sit here at the table pondering my last day off before heading back to the kitchen in the morning. Don’t get me wrong I love what I do, but there is thing as overdoing it. I’m goog at doing more than I should. My executive Chef tells me its not all my responsibility to get the station prepped up. However for me it is as I have a hard time leaving knowing that there is still stuff that needs to be done. Now did I get all done that that needed to get done at that moment?? Yes I did and then some. I take responsibility for my station.
Now here comes the issue, I don’t know how to relaxe. When I’m home I still find something to do in the kitchen, or I’m looking up new ideas for my website to get more clients. Looking at different ways to make my business stand out. I’m always asked do I ever relax. Well not really. I’m always doing something. Well the last two days I’ve done just that...RELAX..yesterday I didnt do much. Did laundry and vacuumed. I cleaned up and then say in my PJs all day and watched “OUTLANDER” again. Yes I started to binge watch the show again. Now I’m paying for it cos my back is killing me. LOL. I got up, took a hot shower and made French toast for breakfast. Then I sat down and set bills up and now doing my blog. (No i didnt take a pic of the French toast) I thought I’d take a break from that till tomorrow when I’m back at work on hotline. I truly am not comfortable with hotline but I’ll manage as I always do.
So learning to relax is definitely something I need to get used too. I need to remember that we all need that time to recharge before we head back to the grind, even if it’s doing something we love to do. There is a saying that if you do something you love to do then you wont work a day in your life. I think it’s something like that, but my point is that for me its not work. It’s something I love to do. I have to seriously make sure I take the time to relax and recharge. Spend time with family and enjoy what time we get together. That is something we all can do. Remember that we are human and we have to have time to rest. It’s not always easy, but we need to do this not just for ourselves but for our families as well. I’ve started to take time and start putting together boxes for my daughter and grand daughter that live in Florida. Yes I hate shopping, but I love shopping for my family. Plus I tend to get myself a new kitchen gadget. Haha. I’m a chef and I am always thinking about how I can do things to make my job a little easier and still tons of fun. YES i said it, being a CHEF is fun to me or at least it can be. Even the dreaded paperwork that goes along with it. I don’t do the paperwork at LASR but I do do it for my catering company. Never fun but it can be.
I think tonight we are letting someone else cook for us. Pizza for my grandson and wings for me and mom. Sounds good to me. Now off to relax a little bit more before I have to get things ready for tomorrow. Remember to always find time to relax. Our bodies can only take so much and at some point it will give out. So take care of it. Relax both physically and mentally.
