Change

Happy first day of Spring!  I love the change of seasons, probably because I just like change in general.  I get bored very easily and like doing something new, whether it’s living in a new place, picking up a new hobby, or just enjoying newly pleasant weather!  I remember as a kid rearranging the furniture in my bedroom at least once a month, just to change things up.  As I’ve gotten older, I feel like change, especially big life changes, are more and more terrifying.  You spend your entire teenage and early adulthood planning for some life that you dreamed of as a kid, yet realize when you are finally mature and have a little bit of life experience that your dream is no longer your dream.  You feel trapped, like it is too late to make a change in your life.  Lately, my life has been changing a lot.  It is scary, but liberating.  I hope that I can eventually talk openly about these changes, but right now I am still unsure of where I am at and what my future holds.  I am not ready to make any sudden decisions or to close any doors.  I do know that for the first time in my life, I have decided that my health and happiness are the most important things.  There has been a lot of stress, tears, and doubt over the past year.  But right now, at this very moment, I am in the right place.  It is scary and stressful, yet empowering and beautiful.  Life is good.

No recipes today.  I have to admit that I ate a frozen gluten-free pizza for dinner (with some champagne to wash it down)…and it was awesome!  New recipes will be coming soon!  And remember, live the life you have always dreamed of, but be willing to change your dreams as you grow!

 

I leave you with these famous quotes regarding change:

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”  -John F. Kennedy

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”  -Charles Darwin

“To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.”  -Henri Bergson

 

Happy eating!
