Welcome to Vicky D’s Delights!! This blog has been a long time coming, but I finally had the courage to write it. My family has called me “Happy Child’ for as long as I can remember. I’ve always been bubbly, smiling, just full of life and energy. Over the past few years though, I wasn’t that happy.
Sure, I was still smiling. Sure, I was still happy. But honestly I think I was sad. Why? Simply put, I craved perfection. I wanted to be perfect–perfect job, perfct family, perfect body, perfect income, perfect car, hopefully find the perfect husband who would buy me the perfect home. Isn’t this what everyone wants?
It was all a dream. (in my Biggie Small voice).
Oh how young and naive I was. Perfection just isn’t possible. I was blessed in more ways than I ever understood with the life Victoria is supposed to have. There was no use in wishing to have someone else’s life, for nothing is ever what it seems. So instead of dwelling in my dismal disparity, I decided to dwell in life’s delights, to focus on the things that truly brought me joy. Yes, there are some low moments, but nothing is ever that bad.
When I started Vicky D’s Delights, I knew 3 things to be true:
- I loved food.
- I loved cooking.
- I loved to share my love of #1 and #2 with anyone and everyone who would listen and/or eat it.
This is what makes me happy. That’s all that matters.
