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. Its 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 colourful, they add brightness and some shades of darker colors, these colors are what add life to our lifeline colouring 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 post, one a recipe and this.
A little inspiration to get your Monday going.
Take a small moment and make a small list of three reasons why you are grateful today.
I’ll be silent.
In the meantime I will 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 it in the comment section or email me. I would love to hear from you bugs.
I want people to read my blog and for it to be more than just a food blog or a fitness 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. I am A.Broom 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.
