Do you find yourself waiting for circumstances to be perfect before you take action on something? Rather than just doing something, do you spend time waiting to do something until the timing is just right?
I do this all. the. time. To the point that less gets done because let’s face it, the timing is never just right.
Sometimes this blog paralyzes me because there’s so much I could do to make it better. So much to do that takes so much time that I don’t have. In the end, I wind up doing nothing. Somewhere along the line I forgot that something is better than nothing, even if that something is just a little bit.
These muffins are a small example of me waiting for the perfect circumstance. I’ve made these muffins, or a variety of them, several times since September. Each time I think, “I should share this recipe on the blog.” Yet, I never did.
Until now. This morning when I was making them I had that thought again. Several more thoughts entered my head.
“I don’t have time to take proper pictures right now.”
“This morning light isn’t right for pictures.”
“I can’t think of a creative way to set up the shot.”
“I should clean up the kitchen before I do anything else.”
Then, I stopped myself. Just do it. Who cares if the circumstances aren’t perfect? You would rather have a recipe to use than perfect pictures to look at, right?
I stopped thinking and started taking pictures.
My pictures will probably never look like some of the ones you see on certain food blogs that appear they were professionally styled with amazing props and perfect lighting.
But you will always get a slice of real life here.
And hopefully along the way you’ll pick up a few good recipes your family loves. I hope you enjoy these whole grain apple cinnamon muffins as much as we do.Print
Have a fantastic week–go ahead and start whatever you’ve been putting off!
