PasadenaSue This is the year I face my fears and love myself!
Small steps are still steps!
I agree with your comments that sometimes we need to find our victories – and happiness – with small goals. If that is all we have control over, then that is a great place to start. Cooking is a great way to accomplish small goals because it is tasty, fun, and you can do it frequently.
I am guilty of buying something and then not using it for ages. I now love the George Foreman grill that sat in the cupboard for over a year before I plugged the thing in. It makes quick work of turkey or veggies without a lot of hassle to setup or clean.
Celebrate your success! Build on your new skills and cross a goal off your list. :)

thanks for your kind words
I think I do miss cooking for more than one reason, and I think this is one of them. Like you said, it’s a great way to accomplish a small goal we do have control over and can do frequently to build up momentum.
For now while I can’t cook, I am grateful to have the memories and actually find myself enjoying the thought of cooking again someday. It’s a joy to me, and I am truly happy I can revel in that. We so often take our good memories for granted and don’t take the time to re-live and treasure them.
So whether it’s cooking again at some point or picking up another skill, I wonder just what I will find next that will produce more happy memories I can’t imagine right now.
Best wishes to you as you endeavor to move through your goals as well. May you finish them with more reward than simple completion – may they too become happy memories for you to add to your collection. :)
all the best,
p.s. and thanks for the reminder of this goal’s last entry. It was good to reread.
