Cooking - The Ultimate Confidence Booster

When I worked in the corporate world I would regularly join my co-workers for lunch in one of the boardrooms. Most of us got into the habit of purchasing our lunches from the food court.

However there was always at least one person a day who would bring in something from home. It was usually leftovers from a dish they made the night before. The rest of the group would always “ooh” and “ahh” over what they made.

I know it always boosted my confidence when people commented on the homemade leftovers I would bring in for lunch. It made me feel good about what I was eating and also proud of my culinary creation.

The odd time you could manage an “ooh” and “ahh” from the group if you discovered a new take-out meal from the food court but it never had the same confidence boosting effect.
