fail again

Today has been one of those off days. You know the kind. Nothing goes right, or I should say, nothing goes the way you planned. Among other things, I had a major baking failure this evening. Silly, I know. My nephew really wanted me to make him some monster cookies but what I made ended up looking more like monster pancakes. I was angry. I followed the directions step by step on the recipe and still failed.

As if failures and off days were contagious, I found out several of my friends were also having bad days. Situations were changed, but the disappointment was the same.

And then, my very cliche mind thought of my favorite quote.

"Fail. Fail again. Fail better." - Samuel Beckett

So, I grudgingly pulled out a couple of extra ingredients. I mixed up my batter again and scooped it out on the pan. This time, I left the cookies in the oven too long so they burnt. I tried one final time with yet another pan of cookies and this batch came out perfectly. So perfectly, that they were all eaten before I could take a photo.

Don't stop trying, friends. Try the recipe again. Take that risk. Put yourself out there.
