It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’m back! Once again, life got derailed, but did it really get derailed? Isn’t that a huge part of life? Isn’t that how we grow and learn? Like a phoenix rises through the ashes, we transform many times throughout life if we allow ourselves to. I am currently learning how to let go, not be bitter or angry about this part of life, and embrace all of its many marvelous benefits.
All that being said, it’s time I start posting here again! A weekly blog I’ve been wanting to do for a while is “3 Things.” It’s any 3 things I choose that week that I am obsessed with or have discovered and want to share with the world. Here are my “3 Things” this week:
1.”Modern Man” by Arcade Fire
I know it’s not a new Arcade Fire song, but I have not been able to stop listening to it. It has been on loop, as the entire album “Suburbs” has been. While I have heard the album before, this week in particular, it’s like I’ve rediscovered it all over again. It speaks to me on a completely different level that it never could have before going through this current molting process.
2. Pitted Dates with Dry Roasted Salted Almonds
Seriously, this was an accidental discovery at work. I had a separate bag of pitted dates and a separate bag of dry roasted salted almonds. They were both almost empty and I didn’t want to have two half empty bags on my desk, so I combined the two. What happened next was a party in my mouth. Seriously, the way Remy in Rattatouille got when he combined two different foods that went together, and the fireworks were bursting in his mind? That’s what happened. The warm sweetness of the dates paired perfectly with the nutty, salty almonds. The best ratio was about 3-4 almonds per date eaten at the same time. Seriously, try it and tell me how you like it!
3. Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential by Caroline Myss
I was a bit skeptical, as I try to always be when it comes to spiritual reads, but the more I read on, the more eye opening this book was and continues to be. I borrowed it from the library, but I need to buy my own copy because I need to write in and all over this book. Remember that whole molting, rising out of the ashes thing I was talking about? This book truly has had a huge part in opening my mind and awakening all the parts of me that needed to be at this time of my life. Whatever stage you are in your life, I encourage you to pick up this book. I’m not being paid to promote this at all, just as an FYI. It has truly touched me and allowed me to open my mind and heart where I felt lost and angry.
Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for reading my first “3 Things” post. If you decide to check out any of the 3 things I post about, I’d love to hear feedback. If you have things that you recommend, please share! I’d love to hear about it!
