So who here loves their oatmeal? I know I do! But during the summer, I don’t want something warm for breakfast. However, lately I’ve been able to have my bowl of oatmeal without breaking a sweat! Thanks to frozen fruits. I just cut up whatever fruit I want to use and stick it in the freezer overnight and voila. I just mix in the fruits once the oatmeal is already in my bowl.

Yesterday my parents surprised me with news. At the time it seemed like bad news, but I’m looking at the positives. They told me that I have to go down to Florida for about a month to get all my medical tests done. The whole ordeal has just been a frustrating experience, but I’m hoping to get it done with and start treatment for whatever it is I may have. Finally! I like being back home and Florida can be a paradise, but it gets boring there very quickly. I’m going to try to make the most of the situation though. I guess that means finally trying out some of Angela’s recipes! I’ll see it as time I can work on myself inside and out. A whole month of spoiling myself doesn’t sound so hard does it? Honestly, it’s really hard for me to allow myself to really relax. I feel like I always have to have my head above the water and keep swimming. I can never just… float. I’m realizing that I might be doing all this swimming, but am I really getting anywhere? So while I’m in Florida I’ll just pretend I’m a writer tucked away in a cottage, trying to get out of my creative funk.
I was looking through some pictures on my computer, and for some reason I felt like sharing. I’ll start off with a food related one, since this blog is mainly about my food adventures!
On a somewhat related note, I feel this post has a lot to do with reflection. The act of reflecting can be something you do about the past, or even on yourself in the present. Either way, I believe for us to grow closer to who we are as people we should do this. The other day as I was reading other blogs I came across a post on Oh She Glows. This particular post deals with self-image, and we often belittle ourselves. Just thought I would share it with you all, and maybe you’ll get something out of it.
What do you do to nourish your mind, body, and soul?
Today the sun is shining (it’s been hiding all week), and it’s a Friday. I’d say it’s a wonderful way to start the weekend.
p.s. Thanks for all the advice on my last post. I feel a lot better about that whole situation.
