Saturday Upsides: Going out on a limb

Welcome to another week of Saturday Upsides!  You can check out this page for Saturday upsides from previous weeks.  Please join me this and every weekend to share a positive story from your life!


Braving cold, salty water 🙂

There seems to be a theme I keep coming back to over and over.  The idea that it’s always a good idea to go out on a limb – take a chance, try something new, do something you haven’t done before.  Of course, on this blog I’m usually talking about exciting recipes, but this applies to all areas of your life.

One big area in which I had to step “out on a limb” was in starting a food blog.  I’ve loved the idea of having a food blog for so long, and I am by no means a shy person, but I had, and still have, a lot of fear that people either

1. Won’t care about what I share.
2. Won’t like what I share.
3. Won’t read what I share.

I am so glad that I have a blog, though!  I get tremendous satisfaction from all the wonderful comments and all the tips from my readers!

What are you afraid to do but you know you ought to??


So go for it!  Just post your “Saturday Upside” on your blog with my “Saturday Upsides” picture and a link back here, comment on my blog with a link to your post, and I’ll add a link to your blog at the bottom of mine.

Everyone’s posts will be different; please use this “Saturday Upsides” post to share your own unique thoughts, picture/s, and bright sides!  I’d love to see posts all weekend, not just Saturday.

I'm Bonnie. I'm a pharmacy technician and new wife to Bogdan. I love cooking, usually without recipes. I love good sales and coupons, but haven't quite figured out the best way to find them. I make the typical new-wife mistakes and have burned my share of cookies. I like a cold house and a hot shower all year long.
