“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure – in cooking you have to have a what-the-hell attitude.” – Julia Child
So true…You really have to be aggressive with cooking and aggressive with life. If you let fear spook you and keep you from trying, then success is hard to find.
So many things I’ve experienced in life has started off as fear; some I’ve overcome, some I haven’t. Fear of moving to America, making friends, starting new jobs, going gluten free; fear of having a baby, becoming a step-mother, fear to blog, expose myself to the world… Fear to cook and try new versions of recipes that have inspired me. I’ve given fear a what-the-hell attitude and overcome challenges; because on the other side of fear is success and happiness.
If you don’t struggle in life, if you don’t feel the fear and overcome it, then satisfaction and happiness is hard to find. Give life the what-the-hell attitude and face fear in the eyes; there’s nothing to lose and happiness to gain. And sometimes fear will lead you to delicious creations that you never thought were possible. What fear have you given a what-the-hell attitude that came out a delicious success?
