A few weeks back I was incredibly touched to hear someone I have never met reads my blog. I originally started this blog for me, but have come to love the ability to connect with other like-minded souls through this online space. That connection is why I continue to keep this up, despite the business of life. For a while I was silent, but I have come to terms with the fact that no one is dictating the rules…. that it is perfectly acceptable to write every few months….that something is better than nothing…that even if only one person is getting something out of this blog then the effort is worth it. Yoga helps me see clearly that life is not about rigidity but fluidity. Even if I only have 15 minutes to come to the mat and do a few sun salutations , something is better than nothing . I am aiming for balance, not rigid rules.
It’s no secret to my close friends and family that I am busy, that I have little time to check in with friends and be proactive.
But that’s not a valid excuse…for anything.
Everyone is busy.
We make time for what matters most.
In 2016 my resolution was to make time for what matters and cut out the noise.
Health matters. Family matters. Marriage matters. Time with friends matters. Keeping a roof over our heads matters. Doing what we love matters. Giving back matters.
Worrying about things…feeling overwhelmed and trying to do everything well all the time….not only is it not possible, but it is a waste of valuable, precious time that could be spent helping myself and others around me grow and learn.
Therefore, I am posting the first recipe of 2016 as a healing, no excuses recipe that anyone can make.
If you have 15 minutes you CAN make this and you CAN take charge of your health. This is a power-packed meal, but also rather decadent and special because of the homemade croutons.
Check out these green ingredients!
Cheers to 2016 and a healthier you!
