Is Cooking Essential?

Ok you read the title. Why this topic? Well as a 20 something female this has been a topic discussed in many arenas. So is cooking essential for a woman and a man? Yes! I know that sounds old fashioned but there will always be an advantage to knowing how to cook. Do you want to be a life long takeout queen and king?  What is so great about knowing how to cook? I’m going to give you a few of my opinions. Okay the first one being survival! Ordering takeout and going to Wendy’s everyday is just too expensive no matter how you look at it. Also it can make your waistline expand. Family time is another advantage. If a married couple has at least one person who can cook, it brings you guys together. Next cooking promotes independence. When you are hungry you can get the ingredients you need and boom do your thing in the kitchen. Another one not typical is that it boosts your creative juices. Someone who cooks very well is also a creative person finding new ways to make their culinary masterpiece. Finally, when you cook it brings you closer to your cultural background. My mom always tells me stories about my grandmother and her siblings on different dishes they have made. I know as a Haitian American it felt awesome when I made my first bouyoun and also the time I made homemade cremas. Memories. To sum up cooking is essential to everyday life.

Growing Pains

Growing is life, what does not grow essentially is dead. The process of growth from a child to a capable adult is long hard road. I feel this part of life is very confusing and rather entertaining. I know for sure growth is natural but we as humans can stunt our growth. This is done in various ways. One strong example is feeling sorry for your self or playing the role of a victim. The past is done and thinking that you will never grow will actually happen. Anyone coming from a bad place can get to where they want to go. Growth and change starts in the mind. I have my own example to prove that. Growing up I would say you could call me big I felt like I was very fat. Over time looking back at my older pictures I was not fat at all. Yet my negative self-talk came true unfortunately. When you make your mind to change and grow, you have already won half the battle. Attitude adjustments are part of having growing pains. Always remember wondering about the past will make you caught up and not see the progress of the present and the potential of the future.
