Baking cookies

Baking did not used to be a chore for me.  There was a time in my life when I thought nothing  of getting up in the morning and baking a cake, pie or cookies.  Now, the thought of baking something finds me having to make a serious plan with lots of mental preparation.  Such as it was today.  I got through the experience just fine. But I found it very tiring.

I think part of it is my age, and part of it is I am no longer in the habit of doing this activity, so it feels more daunting than it is...

Life lesson:  our perspective and expectations can influence our emotional response and behavior.  We all know this... We just have to remind ourselves.
