Sometimes, it juts gets to you no matter how positive and motivated you try to keep yourself. You feel disjointed from the spirit that gets you through the busy Christmas season. It happens, even though you don’t want to go against the flow of the kitchen.
But you’re human. Don’t beat yourself up for it.
Just recognise the truth – that you’re in a super-demanding profession, and that this month throws challenges at you like no other. This ‘feeling out of it’ wasn’t your story yesterday and it won’t be your story tomorrow. If it is, maybe there’s something deeper you need to look at.
But you know you will bounce back from it. So be kind to yourself today, chef.
