Well it's no secret I have an addiction to personal development books...and I started this one over the weekend and it's interesting. I think everyone struggles with negative thoughts. Why are we hardest on OURSELVES? - The author Steven Furtick who is a pastor calls this "chatterboxing" The book's goal is to bring your focus into shutting this out and letting God's voice be heard instead.
In this life its SO easy to start comparing yourself and your journey with others..ESPECIALLY because of social media! KEEP IN MIND that SOCIAL MEDIA is another person's highlight reel. Of course people don't normally post about their imperfections. But get real - not EVERYONE is all rainbows and butterflies, six pack abs, OCD organized household. Nope - it just isn't true.
In the current chapter I'm reading it focuses on that you are ALREADY accepted into God's eyes...and you were created for a special reason. You are SPECIAL to Him and he is already proud of you. So why are you trying to live your life to impress others when you have already achieved this to whom it is important to?
was seriously awesome to spend time in my office on Saturday! Been working on learning more about websites, blogs and my business goals. Put my nespresso to use: plain latte (using unsweetened vanilla cashew milk) and added a tad of cinnamon and a splash of sugar free hazelnut syrup - yum. Sat down at my desk and before I knew it THREE hours had passed and I didn't even notice! Now that means you are doing what you LOVE!
stir fried some peppers and onions and some mule deer meat too! Turned out really good - but in my opinion you can never go wrong with stir fry...and anyone who says that they don't like vension.....come on over! I'm up for the challenge of proving you wrong!!!
Been having B take out meat/protein from the freezer each week and put in the fridge. That way we have meat that is thawed and gives me some ideas for the week!
In the fridge this week: fresh fish, ground vension, venison sausage and vension brats - apparently he was thinking venison sounded good! haha - I'm definitely thinking humpty dumpty burgers sounds like a winner this week!
Did some produce shopping today too!: broccoli, shaved brussel sprouts, onion, giant sweet potato , mushrooms and green beans...and I even picked up some homestyle guac from target that is amazing! So I will have PLENTY to get creative with this week. YUM.
speaking of running..I got 6.25 miles in today. First time in a LONG time that I spent that much time on the treadmill..but it felt great.
Well..I better run! Time to relax this Sunday night...wishing there was a pause button...
