DP Daily Prompt:I Have Confidence in Me
Are you good at what you do? What would you like to be better at?
When I first came to Gander, Newfoundland. I was disappointed with the loaves of bread we bought. They were always moldy. I decided to bake bread myself. I never had to bake bread before, fresh bread was available in a lot of shops in Montreal.
It wasn’t the case in Gander. So I announced I will bake my own bread.My husband was doubtful, my friend told me it won’t work, when I asked why she was discouraging me. Her reply was she had tried but failed the loaves of bread she baked turned out as hard as bricks. “Please do not try she said you’d be disappointed.”
I was given a cookbook “Better Homes and Gardens,” for Christmas by one of my husband’s friends.
I took out the book made a list of the ingredients and bought them from the nearby Super market, my husband told me it was a waste of time. I ignored him I knew how can I say I cannot do it without trying.
The first six loaves of bread was not so soft, it tasted good. I knew it would get better when I bake bread regularly.After a few weeks my bead came out perfect. I stopped buying bread from the Super market. I was glad I did not listen to my friend or my husband.
I was confident once I started baking bread, it will be better than the bread we bought from the store,
