It was time to get the blender out today.
I have been saying for months and months and months, that once our kitchen reno was done, I would be using my blender more. It was in a more accessible position, so therefore being able to reach it would make it easier, right?
(I also said I would post a before-and-after once the reno was done with, but the teeniest and tiniest of little kitchen jobs has prevented me from that – so stay tuned).
It appears, that anything, any task, no matter how big or small it is, requires the same amount of grunt to get you going.
I had to do a ‘special’ grocery shop.
Get things I didn’t normally buy.
I had to find time. (Ohhh, that precious commodity…)
I had to find a warm day…
And finally, finally, through my haphazard excuses yet also slight determination to get things going, I got the blender OUT!
It appears that sometimes what we are lacking is, the desire to do something new. The desire to try something out of our comfort zone. We get too comfortable in our little corners of the world, and look for all manner of excuses to keep from stepping out into the middle of the room.
In my case, deciding to get off my arse and take the blender out.
But once you start! Well once you start, you are suddenly open to all the possibilities out there, of fresh smoothies and healthy drinks, they are all waiting for you, simply because you decided your comfort zone was a tad boring.
Because it is, let’s face it. It’s the same old… r e p e t i t i o n… day in and day out.
So today, I salute the smoothie. Here’s to a summery season of it.
