Happy Friday everyone! Sorry to have missed you last week, but I’m back today with another round of things that I have really been enjoying this lately. As always, feel free to join in and share something that is making your days a little brighter.
Two Wolves – My mom forwarded me this parable from Peaceful Daily recently, and I have actually been reading it on the daily. 🙂
One evening, an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other is Good. It is joy,, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for one minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
It truly resonated with me and it can really apply to anything you might be struggling with yourself to resolve. I have been having a lot of self-doubt lately about my career (among other things) and this really helped as a reminder of how to navigate through struggle.
Fage Greek Yogurt – No matter how many brands of Greek yogurt I try – Fage reigns supreme for me. I’ve been craving it a lot lately for some reason. I’ve been enjoying it a lot for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
Candles by Plantlife – I bought the Grapefruit aromatherapy recently on Amazon and I absolutely love it. I was looking for a natural based candle and this fit the bill. There are plenty of others (like Lavender) that I would like to try, but this one was a winner.
Sunflower Butter – I love Almond Butter and eat it constantly, but sometimes a girl has to branch out a little bit. When I feel like I need something different I think that Sunflower Butter has a very different flavor and texture and is great on celery, apples slices or crackers.
Low Blue Lights – I am not sure if it’s getting older or general stress, but I find that it gets harder and harder for me to mentally shut down and get ready to fall asleep at night. In fact, I often climb into bed exhausted only to toss and turn for several hours. Anyone else experience this on a regular basis? I will wake up exhausted like I never slept in the first place. Well, one of my new habits to work on this issue is light bulbs from Low Blue Lights. I turn them on a half hour or so before I’m about to head to bed and I turn off all my regular lights. They have seriously been helping me. Check them out here and to learn more about how they work.
Have a great weekend!
