Yesterday was Day 1 of my “30 Days New” – for 30 days I am planning to do something new or something I used to do, but haven’t done in ages.
I started by making pasta, which turned out to be relaxing and fun. I have wanted to make it for years, but honestly didn’t have the confidence that it would turn out well, which is odd since I know I am a good cook and I’m a blue ribbon pie baker. I guess it simply took me a long time to stop listening to my own excuses! I am glad I did because I have other pasta recipes I am looking forward to making, and now, instead of worrying about the outcome, I’m focused on the fun of the process.
Day 1 Results: Surge of pride and confidence, not bad for so little effort. Delicious, too. Also great memories – my Mom often made noodles. I can still picture hundreds and hundreds of golden egg noodles drying in the sun on our dining room table. Wish I had her recipe now.
Day 2 – A risk in the direction of my dreams
Today’s “New” is really a yesterday leftover, which is completely acceptable according to my personal “30 Days New” rules, which you can check out here.
My “New” for today was wonderful. I was part of a 6 person conference call regarding writing the second edition of a book that played an amazing role in my personal and professional life. Win or lose on this one, I took a risk in the direction of my dreams, and I am already enjoying the rewards of the experience.
Day 2 Results: Delight and excitement! Fun talking with such talented people.
