Happy Is As Happy Does…


Recently…I was puttering around in the kitchen…cooking something…and I realized…how happy I am in the kitchen…how much I love cooking…especially when I have someone besides me to enjoy the fruits of my labor…

I had the same experience last night…as I got supper ready…and prepared some things for the rest of the week…I was happy

But…it’s not always the case…just the other day…I was…grumpy as get out…while doing the exact same things…

Huh…what’s up with that…

Bertha…was quick to point out the difference…I was really tired on the grumpy day…and…although I love cooking…it wasn’t what I needed to do in that moment…what I needed in that moment…was…rest…I just hadn’t structured my day so that I had time to do that…

She also points out…that…it’s not even so much that the cooking makes me happy…it’s more that when I’m feeling good…and…I’m already happy…I really enjoy the cooking…

Hmmm…hadn’t thought about it from that direction…so…let me get this straight…if I want to enjoy cooking…be happy in the kitchen…all I have to do is be happy when I start…

By…Jove…she said I’ve got it…and…she says…it’s the same for everything…
