The Recipes of Life

When you prepare a home cooked meal, chances are, you’re following a recipe. It might be a family recipe that’s been passed down the generations. Or it might be something you found quick and easy on TikTok (like Dalgona Coffee).

Either way you’re following a recipe. Which makes sense because you can’t possibly come up with a brand new dish every single time you cook. It’s too time consuming and stressful.

I try to approach life in the same way.

For most areas of my life, I’m following a “recipe”. And that’s okay!

My sense of fashion is pretty standard. My wardrobe is full of monochrome and basic clothes. I’m not doing any experiments that are advancing fashion.

Same goes for my music taste. I only have one personalized Spotify playlist. Which means I don’t have any handcrafted, beautiful and up-to-date playlists that can fit any occasion.

Of course I’m not saying fashion and music don’t deserve experimentation. I’m saying I’ve personally decided to experiment in other areas (for now).

The idea is – the more recipes I follow in life, the more chances I have to experiment in areas that matter to me.

What recipes do you follow? And where do you experiment?
