Never let someone bring you down!

Good afternoon everyone, and happy Tuesday.  So for a start yesterday was less than ideal I started out learning how to crochet baby beanies when all of a sudden my dad started yelling at me. “You are just like your mother, you get these crazy ideas that you are going to be able to sell your crap when if you can do it so can anyone else.” His words really hurt I never expected my own father would do this to me. Crushing me the way he did, but what I have learned is not to give up that just because he’s not happy with his life doesn’t mean I have to be unhappy with mine.

Needless to say I didn’t give up either I cried through it but I didn’t give up.

So my words to you are never give up on what you really want to do just because one or even a few don’t believe in you. My favorite quote is “failure is better than regret, because if you fail it means that you at least tried.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, tranquil, and happy Wednesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Good morning!

Good morning from a rainy city everyone, so I have been feeling really down about my fitness I feel like I have hit a plateau and not budging, I have been changing my diet even more and adding more fitness to my regime. However I do know I have been making some kind of progress as the new boots that I bought fit a lot better than they did when I originally bought them which made me super excited that I can now wear those for my birthday dinner date night with my boyfriend on the 29th. speaking of which this is a major mile stone for me as I have never been on an actual date so I am super excited and actually looking forward to my birthday this year. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing, pleasant, peaceful, and dry Wednesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Healthy eating.

Ok I also forgot in the mix of all the bad that has been happening that I created a new healthy recipe. It’s called brown rice and quinoa with sautéed vegetables. What I did was mix 1/4 of a cup of brown rice and 1/4 of a cup of quinoa in my rice cooker I then added about 1 1/2 cups of water. I then added my spices a pinch each of sea salt, garlic powder, pepper, and chili powder.  I then cut up one onion, one jalapeño,  and one bell pepper. I then sautéed it over medium heat in extra virgin olive oil (Evoo). Once finished I added the vegetables to the rice cooker stirred and then let cook approximately 45 minutes or until rice is tender and most of the moisture is gone.

I will post pictures below and I hope you all enjoy. 

Have an amazing first day of autumn.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Looking up!

Good morning everyone,  so as I sit here waiting for the train I have decided to reflect back on how much I have not only grown as a person but as a woman. Even at almost 27 I am still struggling to be a strong independent woman, but I know that I am getting there.

So what I ask you all to do is pick a time and reflect just to see how far you have come.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, peaceful Wednesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Good morning!!!

Good morning everyone, and happy Wednesday.  I didn’t write yesterday as I was still not feeling too well from Monday, but I did make my own copycat recipe for panda express’s cream cheese Ragoons all for under $10 and they taste amazing. I will post pictures of them down below.

I know today is going to be a busy busy day.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful,  adventure full, and positive Wednesday.

It’s Wednesday!!!!

Good morning everyone, so I’m not sure if I have mentioned it yet but I’m writing a book. A children’s book I have been milling it over what I was going to write.  My first idea was to finish my mom’s book that she started before she passed away and I just couldn’t get the feel for it, I then thought about wright a book about my mom’s battle with cancer but as I was going through memories I found that it was draining me, making me sad, depressed,  and just all out blah. So that is how I came to the conclusion to writing a children’s book to pay homage to my mom that way. Now here is the hard part I have very few people backing me on my decision. I have more people telling me that I will never be published than I do supporting me. So this is where my positive attitude comes into play.

This is why I say stay positive no matter what, and always remember that positive attracts positive. If you set your mind to it you CAN achieve it.

I hope you all have an amazing Wednesday,  and remember positive attracts positive.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Happy midweek day!

Happy Wednesday everyone, today is going to be another busy day where I volunteer. It’s a beautiful but warm morning in the city. I am still amazed that in just 2 days it will be August, now I know this year has been less than ideal for a lot of the people I know but I can not believe how fast it has gone. Our stores here are already getting Halloween decorations in which is making me extremely excited that October is just right around the corner.

Well those are my ramblings for today I hope you all have an amazing Wednesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.
