A Little Monday Gratitude

The last couple of weeks have been a bit overwhelming.
I’ve started to open up old wounds and experience emotions I haven’t ever.
Not only that but the excitement plus the anxiety of launching F-O-P is also up there. It’s this tingly sensation, the same way you feel about your first love, you know the fluttering plus the nerves due to the unknown. It’s a pretty unique feeling.
As the day of the launch grew closer I started to think that maybe I should speak out about these emotions. I think we all at some point push away our emotions or brush them under the carpet due to the unknown. The unknown scares everyone. It’s normal.
I think we need to all learn (myself included) that emotions are there for a reason they make life more colorful, they add brightness and some shades of darker colors, these colors are what add life to our lifeline coloring books.
We should all take a moment each day and be grateful for all the colors we have.
At the beginning of the year, I started to do a gratitude journal every evening.
I have to admit that it helps a lot to end my day on a good note and not continue to worry about what went down during the day. I might at times forget, sleepy eyes get in the way, but the tossing and turning during the night reminds me just how important it is, to me.
I thought that instead of just sharing a recipe for the first post I would do two posts, one a recipe and this.
A little inspiration to get your Monday going.
Take a small moment and make a small list of three things you are grateful for today.
I’ll be silent.
In the meantime, I’ll make my list.
Now take a few extra minutes to think of something you want to experience in life, something you want from life. This cannot be I want a car or a new house, it cannot be materialistic but an actual feeling you want to feel.
I’ll share first if you want to share you are more than welcome to leave a comment below or email me: email@example.com .! I would love to hear about your bugs.
I want people to read my blog and for it to be more than just a wellness blog, for it to be something that inspires someone out there. I want a blog that is here to break out of the stigma and shows passion, determination, and most important strength. I want to give people a chance to feel like they can follow a dream. My dream isn’t just to cook, my dream is to have a voice along with kick-butt skills in the kitchen. When I enter the kitchen, when I pick up ingredients and recreate a memory, that is what cooking is for me. I am not manic depressive or someone who suffers from an eating disorder, I’m not a label, I’m free. It is almost like a dance. I get to dance my way around the kitchen and express myself in ways I cannot in real life. My voice is still being built, its a work in progress. I want to feel like it matters.
Be bold. Tell me what you want to experience in life. I really would like to hear.
