Sharing words of wisdom by Michael Pollan.

When stirring the pot, just stir the pot. I get it now. It seems that one of the great luxuries of life at this point is to be able to do one thing at a time, one thing to which you give yourself wholeheartedly. Unitasking.


When you are cutting the rhubarb you have lovingly grown and will now make rhubarb pudding cake (a bake sale recipe rattled off to me by ​an old Polish woman) . . . just cut the rhubarb.​​

Zen Mommy

"I'm a Zen Mommy right now."

My kids translate that as --I can only do one thing at a time and if I add one more thing my head may explode!  Or I'll forget something or someone.  Or I will just end up doing a job that is not my best.  My practice is to give 100% in everything I do.

When I am a Zen Mommy I am much better to meet the needs of my kids and the never-ending demands of the day.

Honestly, it doesn't come as first nature.  I need to be intentional and work at doing just one thing at a time.  I grew up multitasking.  Now that I'm "mature" I understand that it is best if I do just one thing.

I choose love.

I choose love. 

My kitchen is a cookie making disaster. 

One lost wallet 

One broken iPod. 

Another bowl of exploding oatmeal.

In all of this, and more, I choose love.

On being me

I'm in a good place.  I know that joy and sorrow go hand in hand.
