....we all have those days where all you want to do is hide. 🌱.... hide from responsibility, from life’s hiccups, from heartache, from the reflection staring at you in the mirror. We all have those days where our strength is challenged, where our vulnerabilities are exposed and we experience every bit of the meaning of feeling OVERWHELMED. 😖😖As human beings, the ability and CAPABILITY to recognize these moments, is what makes us unique and amazing. ✨ ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
It’s important to hold on to the conviction that these emotions, as burdensome as they may be, are transient - they are NOT lasting. The beauty of life and human nature is that dark cannot exist without light, the sun will not rise until the moon sets. 🌙A beautiful friend reminded me this morning that just as easy as we can spot the clouds, it’s as simple to find the sunshine. ☀️So hold onto that ... treasure your inner child, be playful, (hide behind kale, instead of a wall 😉), covet HOPE and dreams and I promise everything will fall into place. 🌱 wellness starts from within. Self LOVE leads to self discovery and yes, it’s a journey, but one well worth the effort. ✨✨✨✨✨✨
🙏🏻in gratitude, wishing you a happy Friday, and as always ... LIFE is BEAUTIFUL 🙏🏻💓✨
A strong, extravagant fondness, enthusiasm or desire for anything ... We all have it.
Each of us has something that motivates us, gives us life, fuels the desire to create and emote. We all have a passion. The key is to find it. To hold on to it and to use it to serve us to our higher and best purpose. 🙏🏻
I am extraordinarily blessed that I have found mine. For me, food is not just something that gives us energy and nutrition... it is it’s very own language. A medium to intimately connect to cultures, to incite conversation, to invoke physical and psychological response. It is the very thing that promotes and CREATES LIFE. My kitchen is the most beautiful canvas, my knife the most important tool and I use them both to give me courage and creative power. I play with the colors and flavors of the seasons and each dish is a symphony of taste and texture and aroma. It is sensual, romantic, exciting, and satisfying. *
It took many arduous paths and a million wrong ways for me to end up in a place where I was brave enough to embrace what I love and make it into a career. Without risk, there is no reward and let me tell you, in finding and embracing my passion every day, I have found nothing but reward and pride. * it isn’t work if you love what you do and my gosh, do I love what I do and that is an earned blessing. 🙏🏻
My challenge for you all is to explore what it is that you love and dive into it. With all of your being. You will never regret following your inner voice and desires. You will never regret following your heart. And if you do something that is backed with pure, unadulterated passion, you will find success (however you qualify and quantify it). ✨
Life is Beautiful my friends and it’s certainly more enjoyable if you’re doing what you love.
Find your passion and let it define you. ✨Wishing you a wonderful Friday and Blessed weekend 😘 ✨
