Day 4: Something New
How can we ever find out what we really like if we never try anything new? How can we make new friends if we never go new places? How can we see new sights if we never travel a new road? You CANT. It is IMPOSSIBLE to experience new things if you never leave our comfort zone.
Being stuck in the comfort zone is one of the biggest threats to our happiness. We only think that we are happy sitting on the sofa doing nothing day in and day out. At first thought it seems wonderful to get home, take off your work clothes, and lay in the bed or on the sofa. As you are laying there your head starts to fill with thoughts of all the things that you could be doing, should be doing or wanted to do, you start to get sad.
Yes, I know the feeling all too well. Laying on the sofa after a long day of work thinking that there has to be more than this. Thinking about all the things that I wanted to try and places that I wanted to see. But work just continues to get in the way.
NO MORE!! Today we are trying something new. We are going to try a new dish. Granted it would be so much fun to find an interesting recipe and get in the kitchen, but not everyone can wear a chef's hat. If you aren't gifted in the culinary arts, time to pick a new restaurant and taste some different spices, Don't be shy to experience a new culture through their food !!!
Here are some New Dishes to Try
Indian - Dal and Nann
Chinese - Dim Sum
African - Peanut Soup
Haitian - Griot and Pikliz with rice and beans
Jamaican - Ackee and Saltfish with dumplings
