as a single gal, i delve back into the world of cooking for one! very much afraid of using the bbq but not scared of much else! i fully believe that there is a reason for everything and whatever is meant to be will be. I am truly the eternal optimist and looking at bright skies ahead! In the meantime, I am busy baking, cycling, practicing hot yoga, learning ballet and of course adapting recipes and cooking for those I love!

words to live by....
At the moment life seems a bit crazy. People keep saying things to me like "you're an inspiration" to which I follow up with the fact that there is a fine line between inspiring and insane. I don't think what I do is inspiring - I think it's pretty f*&#ing crazy actually. Sometimes I break for a moment and think "why am I doing this?" Why didn't I just move back to the city and get a regular job with a salary and benefits and steadiness. Why am I going out on this limb? Jumping in with both feet? Taking this risk? But I guess it goes back to not wanting a life un-lived. I don't want to look back and think "wow, I should have...." about anything. You don't know how many days lie ahead and you certainly don't know what they will bring you so your best bet is to try to follow your heart and your dreams and take risks. Some days are scary and some days are beyond exhilarating and each day, these are the words I am trying to live by:
now, and live. Experience. Dream. Risk. Close your eyes and jump. Enjoy
the free fall. Choose exhilaration over comfort. Choose magic over
predictability. Choose potential over safety. Wake up to the magic of
everyday life. Make friends with your intuition. Trust your gut.
Discover the beauty of uncertainty. Know yourself fully before you make
promises to another. Make millions of mistake so that
you will know how to choose what your really need. Know when to hold on
and when to let go. Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek
knowledge. Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart open, your head
high and your spirit free. Embrace your darkness along with your light.
Be wrong every once in a while, and don't be afraid to admit it. Awaken
to the brilliance in ordinary moments. Tell the truth about yourself no
matter what the cost. Own your reality without apology. See goodness in
the world. Be Bold. Be Fierce. Be Grateful. Be Wild, Crazy and
Gloriously Free. Be YOU. Go now, and live."
