With more available time now that I've outsourced more of my business, I've started thinking about things I've wanted to do for a very long time. But rather than just thinking about them, I went through a process to create a Life List.
After making my Paleo Bread I decided to experiment with some other options. What I discovered is that it's super-easy to make a variety of breads or loaves using the same basic recipe. Here's a banana one that's delicious.
The last few years irritability has been my constant companion, and not such a pleasant one. Being post-menopausal I'd put it down to that, hoping that one day it will disappear. But recently I've discovered it's something else altogether.
With bullying rife both in schools and workplaces, and in some families, it's time to talk about how you can take your power back. You don't have to put up with being treated badly. You deserve better, of course you do; but more than that, you have choices.
Back in 1989 when I first asked for professional help to deal with my suppressed grief, I had no idea how significant that decision would be. In fact, I now know that one choice has shaped my entire life for the last three decades.
You know I have noticed that I don't always talk kindly to myself in my head. Lately, it's definitely improving but my inner dialogue certainly isn't as encouraging as it could be. Many of us are in the same boat.
If you're after a healthy sweet treat this Christmas, these CHRISTMAS CAKE BLISS BALLS are absolutely delicious!
What a year it has been for each and every one of us. With not a single person being unaffected by the global pandemic, we've had unity and division like never before. Making a decision early in 2020, I have been on a mission to clear out, clean up and let go of what no longer serves me. And, as the year draws to a close, I'm feeling better and better from doing so.
I've been reflecting this morning after a busy day yesterday moving all of the stock for my business Upcycled & Co. Lucky enough to find a wonderful local woman who was keen to take over the inwards and outwards goods tasks for me, she is now receiving all supplies and dispatching all orders. This is something I've wanted to put in place for some time, but it had to be the right time. And, it's been a process.
Over the last few years, I've had a number of stressful family situations arise, and of course, there's good old menopause that was thrown in on top. It's been a long time (about 2 years) since I've felt like I could focus on more than one thing at a time. Being super-careful about I navigated this past year or so has been key, but thankfully it's now all good news.
