December is an important month; the old year is ending and a New Year is about to begin. In December, people think about their lives and make New Year’s resolutions; I don’t know how many of us follow our resolutions but it is still good to make the resolutions and try to live up to them. Coming up with my own resolutions makes me think about the past year and what really happened. It reminds me of things I enjoyed or was excited about and other things that made me feel down. In both cases, thinking about why I felt and acted as I did helps me to see what I should be doing in my life, today and in the future.
Another important thing about December for me is that this is the month of my own and my elder son’s wedding anniversaries.
Two years ago, on December 23rd, my husband put the very first video recipe (Gulab Jamun) on YouTube for me. I get a great deal of satisfaction and happiness from doing these videos. I want to thank my viewers for their support and their interesting and satisfying comments. My husband sometimes has a big smile while reading some of the comments and will tell me they are feeding my ego. Well, speaking as a cook, egos need to be fed, too, don’t they?
