Cracking Open My Soul & a side of Nourishing Kale Salad
You may or may not have noticed that I didn’t share a post last week. I have taken a week off for vacation before but this was different.
I want to share with you why I was absent last week. I’m hoping to connect with you on a deeper level so read on if you are interested. Scroll to the end if you just want the easy Kale Salad recipe that is toddler-approved.
There have been some big changes happening at our house this past month or so. Some of these changes have been positive like hosting a couple of wonderful international students and others negative like my husband being laid off.
We have had a lot of adjusting to do along with re-examining our values and family goals.
It has become clear to me that I have started to drift off course from my two most important values. These are LOVE and RELATIONSHIPS.
I feel like I’ve become obsessed with completing my “to do” list and spend too much time worrying about the future.
I’ve allowed myself to slip into a scarcity mindset. I found myself noticing everything I perceived to be lacking in my life and I lost sight of how fortunate I really am.
After spending some time with my soul, cracking it open, shedding tears and asking myself lots of important questions, I came to the conclusion that I need to focus on deepening my relationships and connecting with more like-minded souls who value LOVE and HEALTH as much as I do.
My purpose and passion is to spread love and connect with people through nourishing food. More specifically, I want to show people how easy it is to feed themselves and their families healthy delicious food without spending all day in the kitchen.
I have also declared a “challenge” for myself that I could use your help with.
My challenge is to connect with you on a deeper level.
The best way I know how to do this is through speaking and listening to you one-on-one or at an event/workshop.
I want to spend less time on Facebook and more time connecting and sharing my passions in person.
I value the opportunities that virtual spaces offer but I would prefer to look into your eyes and “see you.” I know that may sound scary and uncomfortable but I promise you it’s worth it.
Now that I’ve shared my struggles, values, passions and the challenge I’ve created for myself, I invite you to connect with me and share what you’ve been up to and anything you’ve been struggling with.
Maybe there is a “challenge” you would like to declare and I could help you with.
You can give me a call, set up a skype chat, and invite me to tea or to speak at your next gathering or event.
I can’t wait to connect with you and deepen our relationship.
Now here is the yummy recipe for the easy kale salad I promised you.
