I’ve done a lot of scary things in my soon to be 28 years. I have quit a job without a back up plan, moved to another city and state all alone to pursue a dream that I kept secret for years, I sang at my best friend’s wedding, I went to culinary school, I started a food blog, I started a business, I’ve online dated.
Basically what I am getting at is that I am no stranger to making scary life decisions; I actually do it all the time without even knowing it. I follow my heart rather than my head to a default, but I kind of like that about myself.
“Where am I going with this?” you might ask. Or, “Isn’t this blog supposed to be about food?”
Yes, yes it is my friends. I love sharing my recipes with you and I am so grateful for your support. I was terrified of starting a blog last year because of the fear that my mom and dad would be my only readers… and maybe my grandma. Also, that I wouldn’t have what it takes to stay inspired and be vulnerable with people online.
What I am getting at is that it’s ok to be scared of things, but it’s not ok to be numb to your life out of fear. So, for the next 50 days I am going to do one thing every day that scares me. Some things will be big, some will be small; but I will do something every day.
In 51 days I will be 28. I want to go into my 28th year knowing myself a little better than I do today and to know that I am making the best out of this one wild and precious life.
Don’t worry, this site will continue to feature original recipes and the culinary musings of A Day from Scratch. However, you can follow along in this journey here or check back through the 50 Things tab.
Here we go!
