navigating life's shadows with chocolate & reluctant yoga

Love yo self!

Love yo self!

I did a very loving thing tonight. I made one of my favorite barefoot contessa recipes with a slight twist. I haven’t used her recipes since the house fire. I prepared everything from beginning to end touching every part of it with my hands and heart. I sat by candle light with a glass of wine and I not only tasted every bite but I felt the love in every bite. I felt the love for the food, from the food, for myself. All of it.

I hadn’t eaten in two days due to a nasty disease I battle so the gift was extra big tonight. I don’t speak of that part of life much anymore. Truth is I would like to pretend it doesn’t exist but then that’s pretending part of me doesn’t exist. So for now this is all of me and I give thanks for incredible moments like this.
