Today I tried something new, something I haven’t done in a while. I ordered a lot of different ingredients from the online grocery store I use every now and then. I had no idea what to make of it, I just knew I wanted to make something with it and make it work. Thing got a little more complicated than I first expected. I had all these amazing ingredients in front of me. I thought to myself that I would try this and that and make something really cool. After a little of this and a little of that, I ended up losing a few ingredients and I ended up with a totally different dish than I first intended to make. Truth be told I messed it all up. This was supposed to be this week’s new dinner recipe. I wanted to tell Y’all about it. The thing is that you will fail more times than you can count, but never ever should you ever give up. Cooking is just like life you fall a million times but you get up a million and one.
There are so many good reasons to why you should never ever give up on cooking, It can be fun, it can be exciting and of coruse, it can be frustrating from time to time. You can never learn enough about cooking. There will always be something new to learn. New technics, new recipes, new foods and spices to learn about the list is never ending and in a way that’s what makes it even more fun. You cook every day, you get better at it and you never stop cooking and you never stop learning. Well, I love cooking and I learn something new every day. Sometimes I get so frustrated that a part of me wants to give up, but I never do because I know in my heart that giving up ain’t an option if you want to succeed. From time to time I’m afraid, afraid that my cooking is really bad, afraid to learn new recipes, afraid to make my own recipes. I’m also sometimes afraid to try something new because I’m so focused on the fact that I could fail. But then I give myself the pep-talk about never giving up and keep going, keep learning new things, keep opening doors instead of closing them and to take opportunities when I can and not wairs a minute.
I know all about being afraid, frustrated yet I’m happy. I’m crossing out of my comfort zone because I know failing is a part of life, and I know that failing is not the end of the world, and I know it’s perfectly normal and perfectly fine to fail. The important thing to remember is to never give up and to pick yourself up and dust yourself off and get back to trying and you will succeed.
So that was my experience for the day, but tomorrow is a new day. A new day to try again.
I hope all of you are having an amazing day and I hope to see you all back here tomorrow for a new post.
