I have talked to a couple girls in the past few days who don't cook. . . I think the underlying theme of both conversations was "I don't want to be a failure."
This is on my heart today. . . what is something that you could branch out and do?? Something that you might not think you are very good at. . . something that seems difficult or hard?
I was always athletic. . . I run, I love to swim, wakeboard, play sports, etc. . . I might not be the best/fastest at any of the above, but I enjoy it and sports came relatively easy to me. . . "working out" did not. . . I hate working out in a gym because I adore running outside in God's creation. 2 months ago I couldn't do a "real" push up if you paid me. . .
and then I started doing Crossfit. On our workout on Memorial Day, I did 100 (real) pushups. . . I THOUGHT I was in shape because I ran. . . but I literally could not walk the day after I went to Crossfit for the first time. . . but I stuck with it. . .(even though it was SO hard). . . and now I have something to show for it!
So what have you been wanting to try??? What do you think your not good at???
If it is cooking. . . well. . . go to your local farmers market this Saturday. . .
Have fun picking fruits and vegetables out. . .
Then come home and make a fruit salad (just cut up fruit and put it in a bowl together) . . . and THERE . . . you did it! You made something in the kitchen. . .
Then you can start to do more when you feel confident. . . make a watermelon, tomato and cucumber salad or bread some chicken. . . pick things that are easy with just a couple ingredients. . .
and before you know it you will be making a 5 layer cake from scratch! :-) If you mess something up. . . throw it away and go to Whataburger. . . it isn't a big deal! :-) Tomorrow is always a new day! :-)
So. . . what are you going to branch out and do this weekend???
