Enjoy the Silence

By:  Brady Evans

There’s a person that passes me on the two lane highway I take to work every single morning.  I am quite sure I go the speed limit, so the person is really going pretty fast to get ahead of me.  What’s weird is that I work with this person and she arrives in the parking lot at work exactly 30 seconds before I do.  Many times we even walk into the building together.  What’s the deal with passing me on the two lane road if we’re going to end up in the same place at the same time?

I think we get so caught up in rushing, that we don’t even realize that we’re doing it.  Everyone is rushing in, out, and around the grocery store.  Commercials advertise short checkout lines on the radio.  What’s an extra 2 minutes?  Enjoy the wait time.  You’re probably just rushing off to another chore anyway.

This recipe has some wait time to it, too.  It takes about 3 minutes to assemble and 30 minutes to bake.  My suggestion for what to do with your time while the tenderloin bakes away?  Chill out.  Don’t do laundry.  Don’t stress over dust.  Enjoy the silence.
