What I have learned is that I love to bake, make art and take pictures. It brings me joy to know that I can sometimes do all of the things I love all at once. Having such a mentally demanding job as a nurse working with critically ill children, there’s nothing more soothing than whipping up something not only delicious- but also beautiful. Not to say that a plain ‘ol cake donut isn’t delicious or beautiful- I just wanted to make a (extreme) metaphorical expression of what my current feels are.
Ya know, expression through food. Through art. Maybe it’s the quarter life crisis in me but the TIME IS NOW. Step out of your comfort zone, the sky is the limit and don’t let what is considered “normal or acceptable” be what defines you. It is easy to be complacent. Venture off and find yourself. Become mindful of your actions and the consequences of your actions. Be self-aware. Be kind.
