I can’t even if I need to. That’s for sure. Food is most probably the only luxury I have in me, and taking it away entirely would be GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH! Crazeh!
But one thing I chose to stop doing (at least take a break from) is reading food writing. I’ve been devouring food book after food book for the past 5-months. My mind wants to move out of that comfort zone and explore something different.
So the past days have been devoted to re-reading Linchpin by Seth Godin.
This is one of my pick me up, inspiration books. Seth Godin I can be a force of change, that I can make my dreams come true because I am a damn GENIUS. Just trying to tame my lizard brain: that wee little voice that says “Maybe next time.” or “I don’t have the money.” or “He /she has skill and I don’t.” Sometimes, when I read through other people’s blogs; I really do think I can’t write decent. I get insecure. But again, I was reminded on how I should push and practice and learn more to BE MORE. It ain’t easy that’s the reality. I still end up having loads of excuses. Argh.
Anyhoo, since I am craving for something really new, I ended up buying a book this afternoon.
I’ve passed by this book, but never bothered to take a peek. I tore it’s plastic cover and quickly read through the blurb. It’s about ordinary people, living SEEMINGLY ordinary lives covering up their extraordinary brilliance and depth. I like books I can relate with. I feel so boring, plain and ordinary; even if I know somewhere behind the plain jane-ness of me, there is a diamond waiting to shine. I started off with the first chapter and I am loving it…
Now off to read! Tootles!
