Favorite Chef Competiton Announcment

Food Blogger Good Thyme Gal Selected for Online Cooking Contest

More Good News...

I hope this blog post finds you in wonderful spirits. I made a wish in January 2022. My wish was to be more intentional and transparent about sharing my passions that were not 'adult' related. A cornerstone of my passions is food.

On March 27th, 2023. I announced my retirement from the adult film industry. I was taught to leave a space much better than you found it, so with that in mind, I started this lifestyle blog, so that I could share some of my most vulnerable moments as well as my love for cooking.

I wish I could say that starting this lifestyle blog was easy and that it was exactly what I thought it would be. But the truth of the matter was, I spent countless nights, upset, frustrated, and just downright bored. Because I was accustomed to a life of excitement and having that constant go, go, go feeling. After much reflection, I realized my life had slowed down so that I could get prepared for what was in my future.

To give you a full picture of that. A few days before this realization, I was scrolling mindlessly through Instagram, and I noticed that there was an advertisement for a cooking competition that was going on. I remember thinking, I would never be able to do something like a competition, but it would be fun to try. I scrolled by it, not thinking about it. A couple of days later, I saw it again and I said, What the hell?

A few days later, I got a notification on my phone from the cooking competition letting me know that I was an entrant. I was, and still am so excited about this cooking opportunity.

Competitions are never about the other competitors. You are always in competition with yourself. Being accepted into this cooking competition meant I had to face some of my demons. They were loud. What if no one likes my cooking?

What if people think I'm a fraud? All those negative thoughts things popped up. I sat in it for a minute, and I realized that everything that I have been doing in my life has led me to this point. All those countless nights where I was wondering how I could use my passions for good. All of those times I was able to bring people happiness with my cooking. I realized it was all culminating in this one moment. So there was really no reason to be afraid.

I hope that following my dreams and being able to manifest the lifestyle I am choosing, helps you, dear reader, do the same thing for yourself.
