Dwell on the Positive
Hello friends I hope everyone had a fantastic day Maybe a wee bit less emotional than mine perhaps? Well, I am not going to dwell on the fact that my mom is gone and I have to face reality now, so I thought I would post about all of the positives that occurred throughout my day today and share a thought I had about what I will be posting about on Tuesdays!
Do you take time in your day to reflect on all of the good in your life? I often reflect on my day and give thanks for all of my blessings before I go to bed or at any random time throughout the day There is so much to give thanks for and I truly believe that by dwelling on the good aspects of our day we are able to lead a much more positive and fulfilling life It really doesn’t take long to reflect on your day and acknowledge all of the good that happened. It is something peaceful to do before you close your eyes at the end of a long day. Maybe even try shutting off your electronics during this time of reflection so there are no interruptions
I am thankful for my school schedule. What do I mean by this? Well, I didn’t have class until 2:30 pm today, so I got to spend the entire morning with my Mom before she had to catch her flight
I am thankful that the tears flowing from my eyes as I left the airport didn’t cause me to get into a car accident as I drove back to school (I told you it was an emotional day)
I am thankful that I saw so many more of my friends that I hadn’t seen all summer long. It is always extremely comforting getting hugs from friends that I have missed so much over the summer.
I am thankful that I have a class with one of my best friends I had my first Food Science Lab this afternoon and saw her sitting there I was extremely happy! We get to cook together now
I am extremely thankful that I got the very last parking stall in the entire lot when I came to class today I was getting prepared to parallel park (I am not too confident with my parallel parking skills, but I needed a spot!) when a nice gentleman pulled out of his stall at the perfect time, so I could easily pull in and make it to class on time
I was happy I was able to have my snack during class today Being a lab and all, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be allowed to, but I figured I would give it a shot since it was a food lab and not a chemistry or biology lab! Luckily for my hungry tummy, I was able to enjoy my afternoon snack in class
I am thankful for this beautiful home I get to come to at the end of the day It is so comforting and “homey” which made it incredibly easy to adjust to
I am thankful for my readers Even though I would blog without any readers, it is nice to have friendly comments at the end of my posts I love hearing from my readers and knowing that they can relate to what I am going through or feeling
What are you thankful for today?
While I was sitting in class today, an amazing thought came to mind! A theme for Tuesday posts! What do you think of: Tasty Tuesdays?!? I think it is fitting because on Tuesdays I have a Food Science lab where we will be cooking Since I developed this blog not only to reflect and share the adventures of my day, but to also share what I learn throughout my studies I thought it would be a great idea to share recipes or cooking tips that I learn in my Food Science lab!
Today, I will end my post with a recipe I developed myself Although this recipe was inspired by many floating throughout the bloggy world, this is all mine and it tasted so divine My first words to describe this breakfast?
“Oh wow, this is just like dessert!”
Enjoy my friends!! It’s a good one
Carrot Cake Oatmeal
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup grated carrot
1/3 cup oats
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
more almond milk (or Greek yogurt!!)
Bring carrots, cinnamon, and milk to boil. Once carrots are tender, add oats. Cook until oats are done. Stir in protein powder. Top with more almond milk and walnuts.
Are you excited for Tasty Tuesdays?
