I have been having a break in the last few weeks, taking the time to reassess life, and decide which direction life will take this year. Being unemployed is still a constant source of frustration, but I am keeping a positive outlook, counting the blessings, and taking the time to do all the things I love through this transition period. I have been accepted into graphic design college where I will be able to indulge my creative passions, which I am hugely excited about.
One of the things I have had a lot of time to think about is health, and the importance of having good nutritious food to help support my body and keep me as stress-free and positive as possible. I’ve always loved playing around with different recipes, and have recently begun to experiment with green smoothies.
After drinking one of these, I feel happy. And energised. And centred. They pull me back to earth, filling me up with vitality and goodness. This smoothie may not change the world, but it makes a difference to my world, and that’s good enough for me.
