8-Minute Memoir

Day 122: Worth the effort

May 24, 2017

Day 122: Worth the effort. Write about something that takes a lot of effort but to you, the results are worth it. This can be camping. Gardening. School. DIY projects*. Sewing**. Cooking. Exercising. Online dating. Musical Instruments. Etc. I don’t love to cook but Chicken Tikka Masala is my favorite meal. I have to gear up to make it (and it’s not even that hard), plan and get the ingredients, make space early in my day to prep, and then make all the extras (the clean up is not pretty either). And every time we sit down to eat it, I’m so happy I did it. I don’t even care if no one else eats it. I love it. I know I worked for it. And I don’t mind eating the leftovers for a week. What do you have to work hard for and the results pay off every time? 8 minutes. *not worth it because I’m so bad at it. **don’t have the patience and give up every time even though my mom forced me to sew an outfit every summer. Sorry Mom. #8minutememoir
