“Part of Santa’s Complete Breakfast”

A sketch I just barely, slightly started during school today! : )

Maybe the awkwardly missing second eye suggests that it’s a teeny bit too soon to share….?

Still, I’d just like to start talking more about what I’ve been drawing! Even if it’s only in little bits and pieces and scraps, like this.

Then, WIAW!! Again, a friendly get-together of what I’ve eaten the past few days. I cooked a huge-normous batch of brown rice on Sunday, so there’s a bit of a pattern!

Brown rice, avocado, mushrooms (very local – grown about thirty minutes away!), broccoli, SprouTofu + herbs & sea salt.

Siggi’s – just plain!

Brown rice, edamame, goat cheese, spring greenies, broccoli & carrots + lemon zest, s&p.

Peppermint + gingerbread oatmeal! 1/2 cup (dry) oats, with molasses, walnuts, ginger/cinnamon/cloves, crushed gingerbread candy-cane, kefir, and a banana.

…Best-Breakfast Award for this week. : ) Santa-approved, too!

Brown rice, sauteed tofu + veggies.

Romaine, out-of-season strawberries (ah!), olive oil, raw honey. Little and simple!

Casting for drama club’s multi-show show was released today! I’m going to be playing Rebecca Nurse in Crucible, and a little extra role in Titanic. : ) I did a search, and found out that Rebecca Nurse was a real woman, actually accused of witchcraft during the Salem witch trials! Should make for some super fun character research. : )

Have a beautiful Wednesday evening! (Mine will be spent prepping for three tests tomorrow – ahhh!)

What It Means to be Naturally AWESOME!

Release the monster!

"Food?!" (The adults were not generous with him, but I wasn't so strong-willed!!)

The cure for my sweet-potato-hangover!

I hope evverryyone had a great Thanksgiving!! Right now, I’m working on de-cluttering unnecassary stresses from my life + grounding my mind…meaning, hopefully, more frequent posts! 🙂

What it really means to be naturally awesome:

To allow yourself to be peaceful,
to allow yourself to be invigorated,
to allow yourself to be beautiful.

To fearlessly tell limits to take up space some place else, when they try to trick you into believing that they have any sort of power or control.

To sing out loudly, although very much off-key. 😉

To jump around when your’re happy!! Release joy into the open air, where it can flourish and grow, instead of holding it entirely inside until it fades!

To make it to the end, no matter how difficult or winding the maze – you can always turn around if you go the wrong way. It doesn’t have to be a perfectly direct route!

To not let mistakes define how you feel about yourself; chances are, you have much more to be proud of, than you do little mistakes – so, wouldn’t it make more sense to put greater emphasis on the positive?! (If you can focus so hard on even the tiniest amount of “bad”, why can’t you focus on the much heavier good, instead?)

To appreciate and indulge in every little, teeny, happy thing. Do holiday Clif Bars and Christmas radio count? Of course!!

To eat lots and lots of muffins!

To understand that thoughtfulness + charity help yourself in just as many ways as they help others…the perfect two-for-one deal!

To treat your mind with the kindness you would a best friend, and your body with the respect you would a prized possession. Once you can do this, you’ll create a powerful person strong enough to handle anything!

To let positivity be your power supply…

…because negativity is far too costly, and provides very little usable energy!
