In the cold months there is nothing like a home made meal. Baking does not necessarily mean unhealthy, heavy cakes and pastries. There are so many healthy alternatives to sugar, flour and diary. Yesterday I made these delicious balls and it took no more than 20 min (including the preparation and baking time). Simply mix all the ingredients above and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. Have them with almond milk with cinnamon in the morning or as a sweet treat before bed. Enjoy!
Worrying, regretting, dreaming about the past. We spend so much time living in the past and even when we don't do it consciously, the past leaves its traces on us one way or another.
Forgiving and forgetting are two different things. In the past in every single person, there is a painful memory, a thing or person who hurt us deeply. Some times it seems impossible to forgive as we are unable to forget what happened. We waste each day in memories thinking that they will be an inevitable part of our lives.
However, if we ever want to love in present, forgiveness is the only way forward. To forgive means to become with piece with the past and with yourself. You cannot give forgiveness to another person if you do not forgive yourself and the other way round - the two come hand in hand. I know, I know, easier said than done. But do we have a choice?
When I saw this photo it really reminded of myself - riding my bicycle at the countryside and being so free without a single worry. There is no reason why each day could not be the same as seen through the eyes of this little, innocent girl. The child in each one of us is still alive, still free, still living each day, each moment with happiness and true joy. If I could exchange all the 'freedom' I have now for the free-spirited little girl then I would do it a million times.
|Magic mushrooms...trully magical!|
I had never been to Amsterdam before, never tried magic mushrooms, never stayed by a mistake in a crap hotel while paying for a much better one! But all is well when it ends well, right? When the sun comes out at the Red Light District and you see the water at the canals glimpse...then you get lost in one of the small sideways and you find yourself facing a shop for ...all sorts of things. All is ok here, which is why we shall be back! Now on to the luggage control at the airport and the regret that we left so many things behind...but at least will stay out of trouble when our bags are x-rayed.
