Some people say chocolates make people smile. Well, not all the time. 🙂
I don’t really like melting chocolates when I’m in the kitchen. I’ve tried to avoid melting chocolates too many times, but I guess I just really have to do some melting here and there if I want to improve and be creative in baking. (This is somehow part of facing my fears/ self-challenging thing for me. )
Labor of love. While melting chocolates this morning, all I could think of was that it was a labor of love for people who are into chocolate making. Then I remembered famous people who work with chocolates. They make a great mess, wiping, sliding, tempering and just produce a tiny ball or heart-shaped chocolate.
Is it all worth it? Yes, most of the time. 🙂 I’ve learned that there are many things in life which can only be achieved by working really hard. It may look as if lot of work is being done and yet nothing’s happening. Like working real hard and yet being compensated less. In life, beautiful results come out of extensive hard work. Results may not be seen now, but they will surely appear in the future. Just like when trying to teach kids good behavior. It’s painful at first, irritating often, because of the number of times you have to do the same procedure. Changes do not take effect instantly, and yet you continue doing it, hoping that one day, you’ll see results.
Well, I got good results this morning with my chocolate.
