Old habits...

...die hard...I was at work the other day and was running down the list of what I'm making for Thanksgiving dinner and someone turned to me and said...'why aren't you a chef?' ...so I spent the drive home that night thinking about what she said...and have been thinking about it for the past couple of days...and it comes down to this...

...I don't have nearly enough faith or belief in myself as some people do...most people, probably...which is why I still work in a mindless retail job...it's my comfort zone...it's what I know...even though I am bored to tears...I need to give myself permission to break out of that comfort zone and force myself to try and possibly even fail...there...that's the big one...failure..

....it's been long and slow coming to the realisation that I have to give into that...and try new things...at least I consider it...baby steps, right...?

  1. No matter how much I like cooking, I don't think becoming a chef or cook would be fun...I think I've seen too many Top Chefs, next Food Network star, etc!!!
