is required, even when you already know the finished tacos are gonna be delicious. And, sometimes, a lot of preparation may be necessary.
What a great life lesson…personally and professionally. You can have all the ingredients… Tortillas- Shredded Cheese- Grilled Chicken- Seasoned Beef- Red Pepper and Mango Salsa- Cilantro- Tomatoes- Onions- Lettuce- Limes- Serrano Peppers, and whatever else you want to add. BUT, if you don’t do the slicing, dicing, browning, &
squeezing… the WORK, it’ll be pretty hard and probably not enjoyable to eat a taco with a whole tomato, raw beef, uncooked chicken and a whole head of lettuce. You get the picture. Haaaa.
And, let’s say you have no time to do any of that and you get to one of those fancy, boutique grocery stores (I love those, by the way) that will do all the prepping for you. All you have to do is buy the kit and go home. Guess what? You still have to assemble it, unless someone has come up with some fancy flying chicken or walking veggies.
Sometimes, it’s frustrating, inconvenient, stressful, and seemingly never-ending, but, to get to that familiar and tasty dish or that beautifully crocheted wrap, we have to prepare! Yes, even before we start the cooking or the crocheting, we have to prep. No matter how many taco nights we’ve hosted. No matter how many times you’ve created that one of a kind piece. Buying the ingredients or simply purchasing the yarn isn’t enough. It’s a start, but, only the beginning.
The wise lesson that I’ve learned and continue to learn daily is this : We have to plan. We have to prep. Enjoy every part of the process! Find wisdom in each step! No one part of the process is less important than the other. Discover better methods after each finish. IT’LL MAKE THE TASTE EVEN BETTER!!
