I'm making some hard boiled eggs and a fresh salad with avocado and lots of olive oil. My wife is still sleeping and I want to surprise her when she wakes up. I'm going to leave a note next to her breakfast.
In the middle of all that, one of our newborn twins starts crying. Ryan is hungry. I change his diaper and start feeding him. Just when he starts eating, Emma (his sister) wakes up crying too. I set up Ryan comfortable and safe and start changing Emma. Then I set both of them comfortably and start bottle-feeding them together.
While they are viciously sucking on their milk I look at my computer screen at the far end of the room and I see that a few more readers from several different countries just got my book. Nice!
The kids are now fed and they fall asleep. I turn off the cooktop, cool down the eggs and set the table. I can now continue working on my new project.
Today I ate more than eggs and salad. I had all my bullshit excuses for breakfast. If you ever thought that you cannot follow your mission in life because you have a family ... maybe it's time to eat your bullshit excuses too. If there is anyone who needs you to follow your mission in life, that's your family. Don't ever use them as an excuse! If you don't think you owe it to yourself, you sure do owe it to them. They need you to be happy.
So, what's for breakfast?
