A few years ago, health reasons forced me to re-evaluate my eating habits, and I realized a simple fact very quickly: most health food is incredibly boring. It's enough right now to just be walking beside each other in this foreign landscape and speaking the same language. Not knowing the shape or parameters of this new relationship with Scott or the direction of my own life or where to trust or having a plan (any plan at all) or being in control. I've done a lot of thinking about the idea of 'living in the now', but it wasn't until this point in my life that I truly understood what that meant.
That’s when I started cooking for myself and started to learn that food could be more than something that filled you up. My desire to do things like cook and write and love will all come back. My ability to trust again will be the hardest (and likely take the longest) to recover, but I know it will come back. But on days when my head feels like a bleak foreign place, it's a lot harder to remember this. When I try to see into the future or make plans, it's like trying to touch smoke.
