Today I want to share this simple message: that we always have a choice. Even when there seems to be only one way out.
You choose that last remaining option. You choose to stay in a job that pays your bills. You choose to sacrifice your weekends so that you can get ahead in your career. When everyone leaves your hometown in search of better prospects, you choose to stay on to be surrounded by family.
There have been many occasions where I felt powerless, without any sense of agency because I was forced to opt for something that I didn’t want to. My mistake then was not realising that even in that moment, the choice to submit to or resist my circumstances was completely mine.
You often hold more power than you think, chefs.
