This image of the world, from a restaurant window, makes me feel warm and cozy. I live on the West Coast and enjoy a variety of comfort foods from the local Chinese restaurants to the Mexican restaurants in the area. I’ve always had a deep and abiding love for the smell of a freshly baked bread with puffy cream cheese, and a fresh cup of coffee or tea. It is the comfort food that makes me feel good.
I know. I’ve said that before. But I feel that I’ve said it before, and I think it’s important to reiterate that my love and dedication to comfort foods extends beyond the restaurant. I’m also someone who enjoys reading on a hot summer day, but it’s that same warm and cozy feeling that I get from just sitting at a restaurant window.
The thing about comfort foods is that they aren’t just for me. They’re often for friends and families as well. They’re the comfort food that makes us feel good and cozy. It is the comfort food that makes us feel good, and then it is the comfort food that makes us feel so very good all the time.
Sure, we get the feeling that comfort food is something that is important and worth our time and attention. But comfort isnt just about food. It is also about feelings, and feeling good is not just about food. If I feel good, its because of food. If I feel good, its because I feel good. If I feel good, then I should feel good. I shouldn’t just feel good because I’m eating it.
One of our most popular posts is the “10 Things My Mother Does That I Never Do” series, that we give to people at the end of each post. But this week we’re giving that to a different kind of person, one who lives a different kind of life, one who has an entirely different set of priorities. That person is the guy who works in a call center for a phone company, and they’re currently on break.
We said last week that our first goal in the series would probably be to give a ton of tips for getting up off your butt and doing something in your own life that you normally wouldn’t, like meeting a new guy to hang out with at your office party (since I already know he’s my type). But this week, we gave them a slightly different task than usual, one that we feel would be a good way to get them out of their comfort zone and into the world of work.
The problem with this new challenge is that it just comes off as a “we shouldn’t make anyone uncomfortable” thing, which isn’t really what anyone would ever do. We are going to set up a call with the first new guy we meet to see if he’s someone you want to hang out with at your office party. If he’s not, then you have to figure out a way to make him uncomfortable.
Comfort food is another word for comfort-food, and if you feel that way, you should definitely stick with this one. It’s a good thing for people to have a bit of a break from their normal routine and not be expected to cook, sew, clean, and generally spend all day doing work they hate. This is because the more regular they are, the more likely they are to feel pressured to get back into that routine.
I’ve had a lot of experiences lately where I’ve had to pull out a chair at a meeting where I’m the only person in the room. Some of these things I’m just so used to that I just don’t notice. I’ve had to leave a meeting because I felt too uncomfortable to sit in the group.
In these situations, it can be helpful to have someone to “run errands” for you. This can be a member of your team, a friend, or a family member. This can also be a great way to feel like you arent doing the work.
