After a week of Milanese breakfasts, that are very good indeed but rather hastily enjoyed, I was in need of a more sit-down-and-enjoy-slowly-with boiled-eggs kind of breakfast, let’s call it more of a hotel continental style breakfast.
I while back I styled this series, but I only showed you a few photos , so I though we’d catch a break from wandering through the streets of Milano and sit down to for a hotel like treat at home.
There really is nothing like treating yourself to a “hotel”breakfast to get the week going on the right foot;)
Boil some eggs, freshly baked bread or from your local bakery, delicious and salty butter, homemade jam from the garden, a cup of tea and a teapot.
Set the table or tray, if you wish to enjoy it in bed, with your favorite table cloth, bring out the china, silver and perhaps a vase with fresh flowers in, et voila, the rustic hotel setting is complete!
I love new beginnings, new days, weeks, months and years, it feel like a clean table cloth, unstained by previous jam spills or tea pot staines from a clumsy move to get to the delicious goat cheese to hastily. I need these new beginnings, I need to know I can start fresh and turn my gaze in any direction I want.
Some people claim we as humans cannot change, but I don’t agree.
I’ve seen it in my life and in people around me. When we change, I don’t think our core chnages and we become someone else, we just learn to channel what is in us out differently. We learn to see the world, people or situations differently and that changes how we react or feel.
Changing does not mean becoming someone else, it means, in my eyes, to fine-tune and make the best of what we have and where we are going.
It means that we are not limited by what we’ve done or who we are right now, we can learn one step at the time to change how we see things and that will lead to changes in our hearts that changes our behavior, outlook and possibilities.
We stay the same, I will still be me, just a better version, and that’s pretty incredible, non?
Just a bit of fine-tuning, really;)
Sometimes, when I feel that I cannot do any better right now, all I need is a treat, a little break and reminder that we cannot eat the whole cake at once, or change everything all at the same time, one step at the time, one cake slice at the time.
So when we feel we cannot do any better right now, let’s treat ourselves to a little hotel-like breakfast and enjoy knowing that we can, and will, after this sweet cup of raspberry tea and a slice of homemade bread;)
