Good morning from South Africa! I’ve been here for about a week now and so far my trip has been great. It’s funny how I knew I was going to have to approach this topic at some point while abroad, and only a week in, it’s already gotten to me; coping with the feeling of being uncomfortable. The statement alone is foolish. How can I be in a brand new place, having brand new experiences, surrounded by optimal beauty and still find something to grumble about? Lucky for me, I created the “no judgement space” for myself a long time ago. This way I can mindfully examine my bad habits and “foolish” thinking from a viewpoint of self-study as opposed to self-hate. I encourage you to do the same.
In this instance, when I looked at myself feeling grumpy over a (not-so) dirty bathroom or the lack of my usual comforts, I found that it all came down to three things.
I’ve said it before—but I’m not sure I’ve ever meant it more—HAPPY Friday! This week was filled with some low points, met with some very high points and if nothing else it was a reminder to me to stay in the moment, experience, and trust. After a busy week I am looking forward to a weekend spent with my husband and my pup celebrating, nothing in particular, just celebrating life. My wish is for you to do the same… with a easeful smile on your face.
But first, it’s Friday Digs
As the weather gets warmer, I’m leaning towards lighter meals. Veggie burritos are my favorite food, but they can be a bit heavy. With that mind, I created this grain-free burrito bowl that has all the flavor a of a burrito without all the calories. I loved this bowl and can’t wait to make it again!
