Embracing Embarrassing Moments = Can Create Opportunities/Growth

Acceptance of uncomfortable or unpleasant situations (ACT — Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)

“Practice breeds familiarity and familiarity yields acceptance. Sometimes putting yourself out there as an artist, writer, etc can be very scary and nerve-wracking, but as you do it the feeling of fear subsides with time. The comments or negative feedback will no longer be a dreadful experience. It is the same with embarrassment. Perhaps your fear is caused by shyness, uniqueness, or accent as in my case. Accepting it first and embracing the fact that you are different, but not less than will reduce the amount of embarrassment it causes.” by Marie Jeanderine Cook

I am a food lover, and cooking is therapeutic for me; it relaxes me and transports me to a quieter universe away from the noisy, busy modern world. I am a Counseling Mental Health & Wellness graduate student, wife, and stepmother. I love connecting with people from different cultural backgrounds through food, fashion, wisdom, and lifestyle in general. To be continued because I am still in the process of discovering who I am as I continue this journey called life. I promise to keep you all posted in the meantime.
