A friend of mine who never liked to cook and was saying she was bored just completed a cooking course at a local junior college "for a lark." She liked it so much that she now booked herself on a trip to Italy for a cooking course in Florence! She also invited us to her home to experience one of the dishes she learned to cook in her initial cooking class.
Wow. She claims this new hobby has changed her life and brought adventure, learning and more social experiences to her on a daily basis. Her quality of life greatly improved just because of one class! We have to keep in mind that sometimes it doesn't take much to get exposed to something new that can turn our lives around and bring us much joy.
