Good morning, friends! I started my day off with this BEAUTIFUL bowl of goodness. My grocery store was having a huge sale on cereal yesterday, so I bought SO MUCH fun stuff! While shopping, I ran into a friend from class. At first I was embarrassed because at that point, my cart literally only contained several boxes of Lucky Charms, Oreos, and ice cream 😂 But then I realized WHO CARES! I wasn’t there to impress anyone. I was there to get my dang Lucky Charms! And I did 😋
Homemade granola! I’ve decided from now on I’m going to make my own granola instead of store bought, as I know exactly what is in it (obviously not a huge problem but I do eat it every day and prefer to choose healthier options most of the time). And also this is WAY tastier!!! This is peanut/cashew butter granola. I mixed together 1 & 3/4 cups of oats, with a dash of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of agave nectar (use any vegan syrup, mine was maple syrup flavoured and delish), 1/4 cup peanut butter (I did a mix of peanut and cashew because that’s what I had!) and a dash of vanilla extract 😋 then mix and spread out in the middle of the oven on about 180degc for about 15 minutes, turning it every so often 👍🏼 it is so beautiful I think I am going to eat it all right now 😂
When I think back to the happiest, proudest, most memorable moments in my life, it’s never the way I looked that stands out. How I felt, what I accomplished, who I shared the moment with, and so many other more important details come to mind first.
In this picture, I was extremely sweaty, out of breath, exhausted, and the last thing I felt was pretty. But I also couldn’t have cared less. There were far better things to focus on, like the breathtaking view in front of me, how great it felt to finally rest, how lucky I was to be traveling in such a gorgeous place, and how glad I was that I got to share the experience with one of my best friends.
That’s the stuff worth remembering. It’s crazy how much you can get out of a moment when you’re actually present in it. LIFE is what happens when you stop obsessing about the way you look, and letting it hold you back from doing things and having experiences.
I think back to high school, when I’d pass up a beach day because I hated my body, or turn down mall invites because I didn’t have time to straighten my hair first, or refuse to smile in pictures, no matter how happy I was, just because I had braces, and I was to shake that girl and say “DON’T YOU GET IT?! Nobody gives a shit about your frizzy hair or squishy stomach or braces!”
The people matter. The feelings matter. The moments matter. And you can’t go back and relive them. We will all get old and wrinkly and gross and fall apart someday, and the more time you waste obsessing about your looks now, the less memories you’ll have to look back on when that day comes.
So live like you did before middle school, before other people’s opinions of your appearance were even a conscious thought. Because guess what? Nobody else actually cares all that much anyway. You truly are your own worst critic, so ya might as well choose to be a nice one. Freedom feels better. Always 🤘🏻💕
Snacking on some strawberries and Kombucha 🍓🍋 getting in food has been a little hard due to the massive amount of anxiety I've been having so I've been supplementing a lot but I was able to finish my bowl of strawberries and Kombucha.
I want to try to get out today but I'm anxious as shit. I don't think I'll venture too far; Maybe I'll just go for a short walk because it's supposed to be nice today. #edrecovery#edfighter#anxietyawareness
