I love cooking. I could not cultivate this passion at home, because my mother and my grandmother were always managing the kitchen, so I never considered this as a potential hobby.
This changed when I moved together with my husband. I was really surprised that he was eating my food and telling me it is good. Sometimes, I believe that he was being really supportive. Not all my food was good, and I am the one to admit this 🙂
The first thing you should know about me is that I used to think that Painting is my passion and I was always struggling to learn how to paint, trying to make art and my dream was to sell paintings. This year was a learning year, I discovered so much about me and I think I found myself. 2019 , the year of self search.
In my spare time I watch cooking shows, but not like normal people do. I scream the correct answer when Chef is asking the contestant, I am excited to see weird combinations, I am like a cheerleader for cooking shows. After seeing me putting so much passion in Cooking shows, one day my husband laughed at me and told me it is really funny that I believe Painting is my passion. I was a little surprised because the conclusion came out of nowhere and I asked ”Why do you say that?”. He answered : “You never look people painting for fun.”
In that moment, my Universe expanded :)) He was so right. I was already started to test professional recipes , to buy cooking supplies and expand my kitchen skills also in the Baking area. I am cooking almost daily, after work to relaxed and I was still thinking painting is my passion. After realizing that my husband was right, 2 days I was really happy that I have a hobby that I am already good at. Right now I am cooking and enjoy this every day.
I hope you will also find your real passion, life is too short to be stuck in a hobby that is making you feel frustrated. The “meant to be” passion should be something that you make so easy and it gives you joy every time.
