I love omelets. For years when I attempted to make one it just turned into ugly, messy scrambled eggs. Because I love omelets and just couldn’t make one, I would always ask potential boyfriends if they could make omelets. My friends would even joke about it because every time they wanted me to meet a friend of theirs, I would ask this question.
After a few years of this I went out to dinner with a great guy. As we talked I told him about this. He asked a few questions that I can’t even remember, but I do remember that I decided I would start making my own omelets. *Note: I’m friends with that great guy still and he’s proven time and again to inspire me to leave my comfort zone of doubts.
Fast forward to a little internet research and a Gordon Ramsay Show and this girl started making her own omelets.
Okay, what did this teach me about being single? It’s just an omelet, right?
Well, turned out to be more than that. It was a defining moment of realization that I could do more than I thought. That I didn’t need another person to complete my life. In that moment, making that first omelet, I began the path of learning to be whole on my own. There are moments that I think I can’t do this. How life would be easier if I was sharing it with someone. Then I’m reminded that I’ve got this. I can make this omelet.
Don’t get me wrong, relationships with the right person are awesome. I’m not against them and I hope to one day find that person I’ll be willing to make some room for.
In the meantime, the journey of loving my life and pushing myself outside of my doubts is awesome!
Happy Sunday. Enjoy an omelet!
