Happy MLK Day to everyone reading! It’s a good time to celebrate with some soul-quenching food like a hearty burger! Eric and I play around a lot with different veggie burger recipes. I’m always trying to create a new and improved recipe. I hope to one day package and sell the recipe that beats all the rest; however, they all are pretty competitive with one another, and it’s a close call. I have to remind them–each burger– that they are all great in their own way, and that is really the most important thing haha 🙂
So a few things: Obviously school is out today, and has been for some time; for me it officially starts back on Monday. I had a nice little break, and used it to really do some soul searching. Organizing my life, meditating like my life depended on it. Sometimes we get SOOO wrapped up in the details of our day, it’s like taking a magnifying glass and pressing it against the viewfinder of the world, or worse, it’s like looking at your face in one of those 10X magnifying mirrors. What good does that mirror do!? Nothing! Nothing but damage I say! Who the hell is looking at your face that closely anyway??? We need to stop freaking out about little things we can’t fix. And of course I’m saying this to myself mostly. Finding meditation again, reminded me that that’s not the road to happiness. TO obsess, nitpick and judge ourselves, and moments that aren’t perfect is a huge mistake. I urge whoever doesn’t meditate to just give it a try. Start with the guided stuff, I can almost guarantee that it can get you through anything you’re going through with a smile. And THAT is the beauty of living–that we have the ultimate power to control our world. It starts simply with the way we hold our face, our mouths, our bodies. That movement, that little energy, can alter your entire state. I have so much more to say about it, but instead I’ll leave you with a delicious burger recipe that will hopefully also do a good job at bringing a smile to your face!
