Yesterday started with 5 minutes of prayer on my back deck followed by another 10 minutes of watering my thirsty flowers around the yard.  I avoided the inside of my home because it was really overwhelming to think about the hours of housework that needed my attention.  Sound familiar?  By the time I came into the kitchen to fix Madac a bowl of cereal, I could feel the dark cloud in the air.  You know the one where you KNOW will turn into a storm.

Hubby voiced what I knew and saw.  My home was a disaster and looked like I didn’t care.  I was so overwhelmed by the clutter, the filth, the toppled up dishes, the insanity of my fridge and the hazy space of each room.  I was full of fear, fear that I couldn’t handle it all.  I have lived years with low energy and the thought of draining myself physically literally drained my energy. 

Imagine that!  The thinking drained my energy not the physical work.  At least not yet.

Not a moment after the storm, my sister called in.  She offered to help me clean, my home.  We worked all day.  We turned up the music, had a few laughs. 

Having faith in a fear commits part of our energy to that fear.

When I let go of my fear of cleaning I was rewarded with more energy, more creativity, more healthy space and joy in my day.

Cleaning the clutter and moving past fears opened up my creativity.  I’ve been stuck on salad inspiration for weeks until last night!

Crispy local romaine
1 small golden delicious apple
handful of fresh peppers (red, yellow)
Local juicy berries (I used blueberry and raspberry)
Handful of raw pecans
Left over feta cheese

Mix all in ingredient together. Toss with your favorite dressing.  Mine included olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey and Dijon.  So beautiful, so tasty, so joyful!

Hey mama’s!  That’s right, you!  What do you fear?  How will push through your fear?  How will you create your beauty today?  Let’s hear it.

It was when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis another few months later that my holistic nutritionist, mentor and friend suggested I eat nutrient dense, local, free-range meats three times daily. Our immune system, our red blood cells, our thyroid and adrenals are made up of protein that form anti-bodies to help fight infections, increase circulation, and make hormones.

In Melissa Joan Hart’s words on how motherhood has changed her, “I feel much more run down and have a lot less time for the simple things like reading a book and dinner with friends. Tonight’s pleas to read those 5 books before bedtime might come with hesitation on my part but end with 25 gentle kisses and hugs and his love in return.

2/3 cup of coconut oil 1 cup local maple sugar 1 egg1 1/4 cup of spelt or rice flour 1 cup rolled oats1/2 cup of coconut1 tsp of aluminum free baking powder1 tsp of aluminum free baking soda1 cup of dried black currants. I like to throw a handful of currants in salads, served over a stew, in a homemade sprouted trail mix and of course in, cookie batter. Black currants, however, are sweet and have just the right texture for my palate.
