LOVING LATELY: MANIFESTING LIFE + LAUGHTER
I love life updates post, I feel like it’s a great way to share with you guys what I’ve been up to the last few days or weeks, and also share my favorite things in the food/wellness scene and overall random new things going on in my life.
This past week has been pretty busy but also a very special week for sure. So last week as you know I was visiting my mom in Colorado (my home away from home and soon to be home on May 25th.!) and I actually did a lot of recipe testing, soul-searching (it’s a Colorado thing) and I have to admit that while there were so many wonderful moments from my trip, the best part was something I kind of came up with to help me with life and also figure out the next few months.
LAUGH IT OFF
So, first thing first, I have been working on my patience, which is something I don’t have a lot of and not only that but not participating in every argument that I am invited to. Mainly because it makes me feel crappy and then I just feel like this black negative cloud is over me. So I decided to try a new thing every time I get upset, or someone says something to try to get me to bite and that is, laugh it off. It sounds like it’s too good to be true, but honestly, I’ve been using it and apart from the few times I let my feelings be known, babes it has been working wonders. I feel like I am overall in a much more positive place since I started to LAUGH when something is not right.
And what I mean by laughing it off is this.
Let’s say someone says something to you and you really just wanna chew their head off, kind of let it go (I know it’s hard) and then when they’re gone, LAUGH. It’s gonna be a forced laugh but after about 30 seconds, you will indeed start laughing for REAL.
And you will forget about the entire situation and feel so much better. Babes, trust me it works, try it out, next time someone is giving you a hard time and pissing you off.
MAY 25th 2018.!
If you’ve been following along then you know I am moving to Denver on May 25th, but I had no idea what I was going to do once I got there. I mean, I need to work so, that was still in the air. I realized that the only thing in life that truly brings me passion is this blog, and also sometimes working out. Seriously speaking though, I want people to feel like they have someone like there is someone in their corner throwing punches. Does, that make sense.? I want to give everything I wanted when I was in my darkest times, throughout the worst of my eating disorder, the scary manias of my manic depressive and also the FUCK, why do I have hair on my face and neck of my PCOS.
So the only way is if I jump, and by jumping I mean when I move to Denver, I will officially be a full-time wellness blogger. As in I no longer work part-time and will dedicate my entire time to the blog, creating more recipes, connecting with more of you guys, doing workshops and SO much more.
I am sharing it all with you because MANIFESTING is the deal and I am truly pouring all of my positive vibes into this.
I’ve been obsessing over these mango bites for the last couple weeks, I made them for the first time right before my trip and then again three times while visiting my mom and once again now that I am home. They are SOOO good and they are full of healthy fats. I feel like they are the tropical cousin of my beloved fat balls.
PALEO TORTILLAS. Okay, I ADORE Siete tortillas but I’m gonna be honest, I cannot afford to spend $8 twice a week to get tortillas. To tell you the truth they are normally my treat to me but still. So I decided to venture out and try making my own, as you know I love cassava flour and Otto’s has a paleo + vegan tortilla recipe. So I made them and fell in LOVE. I mean the best thing ever. I like to slather them with avocado and call it a day. I like to make tacos with them and homemade wraps with arugula + spicy mayo. OH YEAH.!
I’ve been enjoying some afternoon walks with all the sun now thanks to daylight saving times.
I have started drinking coffee again and have been for a month or so now. I have discovered a way to beat the jitteriness that I used to get and still keep my hormone levels chilled. THE ANSWER: CBD Coffee. YES. It is completely free of THC, so no worries if you aren’t into it, but it levels out the caffeine and I feel mellow throughout the day with just focused creative energy. I am blending up my CBD coffee with healthy fats, adaptogens, and collagen. BEST latte ever. I’ve been obsessing over Steep Fuze and they happen to be local here in Boulder, Colorado.
AWESOME BLOGGING EVENT
One of the main reasons for my trip to Colorado was the Safeway hosted an event that the Denver Blogging Club had and let’s just say WOW. I mean I was excited because I really wanted to get together with a bunch of bloggers, but then Safeway knocked it out of the park with all the yummy food and all the treats they gave us to take home. Like even these gorgeous flowers, which are in my mom’s bathroom because I didn’t bring them with me to New Mexico. It was awesome we also had the wonderful Eva talk about the best way to reach out to Media aka like Fox TV and stuff. It was pretty awesome and I cannot wait to be living there and have the immense pleasure of attending all of the events.!
Oh and I just discovered this new brownie muffins type of thing thanks to Safeway.
Alright, my loves, I hope you have an incredible weekend, I am heading out on a hike right now, taking full advantage of the sun and nature. BTW what are you guys loving lately.? SHARE.! I love reading what you are up to.
