Positive Quote: “If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living.” – Gail Sheehy
It has been awhile since I last blogged. Time flies when we let the day to day consume us.
I like this quote because it helps remind me that who I am today is not who I will be tomorrow or in the future. I embrace change. I know I have areas of future growth. Hence, the quote inspires me.
For example, I think I grew a little yesterday. My 16 year old daughter and I were grocery shopping and I don’t know why or what prompted me…but I asked her what she wanted me to cook for Christmas dinner. Now normally, normally I have the menu already in my mind and not much deviates year to year. This year though, I thought I would make what my family wanted versus what I thought I should make. She surprised me and asked me to make ham balls like her grandmother on her father’s side makes. I had no clue how to make them. So, I called my daughter’s grandmother and she kindly emailed me the recipe. Wish me luck as this year I make something I have never made before. As long as it doesn’t burn, I should be okay.
Now you may be wondering how that was growth. Well, to relinquish control of a menu, to be open to trying to cook something new on a day where we set aside time to be with our loved ones….that is big for me. It makes me nervous but happy knowing that it will make the day even more special for my daughter.

Have a marvelous Monday.
