“I can tell you that the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is”–Jim Carrey
THOUGHTS: Gosh, it’s been years since I’ve been on here. Not only did major life changing events happen- and well, still continue to happen (such is life?) But time has passed. Much time.
However, my love for writing has not changed and I suppose it’s become stronger, hence the reason I’m back. I also still feel the desire to make a difference not only within myself but somehow be of help to others. I’m still in love with poetry, fitness, recipes, motherhood, curiosity about randoms and my own walk through this world and how it serves my soul best and how I can return the compliment back to the world.
In coming back to the blog world I’ve wondered if I should change anything or follow the theme I was…. and I suppose I’m sticking with what I was doing. I seem to not only be a creature of habit but I still have too many topics/things I’m interested in.
You know even as I type all this out I can’t help but smile. Life has happened, enormous amounts of changes but also enormous amounts of growth (I hope)… and that in itself is beautiful. Also, an interesting thought that even with all the changes and events, the small things like writing and such, still bring me just as much joy and pleasure, if not more. As much as those events can occur and change your life and also change who you become or your direction…. I’m still the woman, young girl, small child that I’ve been and I think to a degree we all are. The part of me that realizes this is just grinning ear to ear- dancing to the beat of her own drum.
Your happiness isn’t everyone else’s. My happiness and yours is not the same… and that’s a beautiful thing. That alone should make us happy- not wanting to mimic each other’s. I wish you the best in your journey and hope that somehow if you’re reading this… I can make a difference in it.
TASTE: Now for the yummy…. I made a pizza for my daughters. Food is of such importance to these gals and I like to try and change it up for their belly’s (and let’s face it, the whole “we’re having that again” comment) but I want them to get the nutrition that they so need. I’ve found a crust at good ol’ Walmart in the refrigerated section with the biscuits and croissants and not only are it’s ingredients good but it makes for an awesome crust.
Last night, I did tomato sauce first, with minced garlic, pizza seasoning, pink Himalayan salt, mozzarella cheese, stewed tomatoes, black olives, pepperoni, and spinach. Little more salt and more cheese on top to finish it all off. The girls ate it with gusto and I felt good about what they were eating. It maybe took five minutes to make and I baked at 400 degrees for about 12 or so minutes.
I’m a fan of things like this because it’s super quick and nutritious– soooo much better than spending $5 on a little caesars pizza y’all. Just saying.
What kind of pizza is your favorite to make?
Much love- BEX
