Angry Asparagus

Hello lovelies~

I dedicate this dish of asparagus to my angry soul right now. I feel really tired and drained this week, which I don't even have the excuse to be since I didn't have any major tests this week! I guess I'm just being really hard and critical of myself and it's eating me away, especially today. I am my own worst enemy because whatever I do, it's never good enough for my inner self. I always seem to ask myself: why am I here, what's my purpose here on this planet, why do I do the things that I do, what do I want to do, why do I compare myself to others so much, why doesn't anything seem to satisfy me, and who is this girl looking back at me.

One bad habit of mines is that I'm always thinking about the future. Living in a world so vast and wide, it's pretty easy to feel lost. Something I need to work on is focusing on the present, doing my best, and not worrying over the little negative things in life. There will always be something that will flip my world upside down, but what I need to do is not allow negative energy from anyone or anything to affect me!

Sometimes we all just need a reality check. It can be hard not to put yourself down at times when your world is in chaos. Thankfully, I was able to break out of this chaos through cooking!

Today, I present to you a SURPRISINGLY delicious dish despite cooking this in anger.

Angry Asparagus
