I'd just spent the last few months running myself ragged to prepare for an important set of exams, and they finally finished, leaving me with a sense of happiness and a fever.
I recovered yesterday and today I took a couple of steps into making myself feel amazing. First things first, I finally got my eyebrows done, and the difference is enormous!! I had a unibrow till today, but not anymore!
Then, on the way back, my mom wanted to do a bit of grocery shopping. While she was picking up vegetables, I spotted this batch of mushrooms which seemed to call to me. I immediately picked them up.
And today, for the first time in my life, I stepped into the kitchen, and with my mother's guidance, made a mushroom chilli fry for dinner. Felt amazing while doing it.
But the real icing on the cake was serving a cup of coffee to my father after a long day at work, having him say that it was just like how my mother made it for him, and serving the dish to both my parents. Hearing their praises was a fitting end to my day, and my first cooking attempt.
So while I drown myself in education and grabbing a degree and well paying job, it pays to sometimes invest in soft skills like this. I cannot stress on how self sufficient I felt, so much that I declared that next time, I'd make a mushroom dish on my own!
Just wanted to share this with you guys :)
