On July 31, 2016 I purchased a stand mixer with the intent to get into baking. Everyone in my family supported this decision since I had been doing it all by hand when I did bake something. 2 Days later it came to our door step but I never opened the box.
You see I had this mindset that I had to have my kitchen in order to use this mixer. I was in the process of slowly decluttering our house at that time. I had to do things in order. The kitchen was always last. It ended up still staying in its box unopened.
Fast forward to August of 2017. We now are in our dream home. I have a way bigger kitchen. I finally unboxed the mixer! But I still didn’t use it. It was sitting in the cabinet. It had a place. That’s slight progress. I kept making excuses or would forget about it.
As of late, I have been making progress to do more and more of the things I have been wanting to do but didn’t do. So today I did it. I pulled out the mixer put it on the counter and made banana bread!
Not just any banana bread but my recipe.
It felt really good to do this on a whim too. It literally just dawned on me and I took action.
As the banana bread muffins were cooking my husband cake down from his office and had the biggest smile on his face. My kids were so excited as they were taken out the oven. Who would of thought that my baking something so simple would bring so much joy.
Sometimes I have to take my own medicine and Stop Stopping Myself. I was holding back for no reason. I was stopping myself and my family from wonderful moment of indulgence in baked goods.
But no more. Rosalie will be the baker too.
