Yes yes. On a random Wednesday several months after my last post, I decided to slap awake the Samosawallah. It is scary to start up again once you miss a self-imposed deadline for a post or your recipe fails or your photos come out shitty. And for months I have been scared. Apparently I hadn’t heard the word resilience. I have also been pregnant. But that is less the real reason for not posting.
It takes courage to start and write a blog in the first place, to add your voice to the cyber din and hope someone is listening. But it takes extra extra courage to come back to it after repeated long absences. That courage I had been unable to muster – until today. Someone told me to do something that scares me, like ask for a discount on coffee. There are two issues with that: I don’t drink coffee these days and that is not scary for me anyway. So I got to thinking. If I were going to do what scares me, it would be make a post on the Samosawallah. So here I am. Yes, this was a spiritual exercise for me. And a good one I must say. I know I’ll have the good feels soon as I press this. The advice to do what scares you sounds corny, but since there isn’t a recipe to try here right now I would suggest everyone think of what scares them and do it. Just to exercise that courage muscle.
On a more serious note though, other than giving me an adrenaline rush and other hormonal ups, I am hoping my readers, friends and family will allow me a comeback as the Samosawallah. I have been working on many a low carb, diabetes friendly, fat fatty recipes. I do really hope you’d indulge me one more time.
By the way, baby is coming December 1st! Or whenever he or she wants. I am humbled by the lack of control on my own life and body and I can’t wait to meet this little person!
I hope you’ll see me again soon, with a recipe.
