Look on the Bright Side
It’s been a hectic week and it’s only Tuesday! But at least it’s Fat Tuesday and that means that somewhere, someone, is having a fabulous time. And maybe you’ll be going out and having a fabulous time later on, too. You always have to look on the bright side, right?
Maybe these pictures will put a little bright side on your week.
Bright Side #1: Nature in bloom, the sun is shining, the days are getting longer, and spring is in the air!
Bright Side #2: A fast and easy dinner that makes planned leftovers and very little dishes because it’s a one-pan meal. <— See that link for more ideas.
Cheezy Vegetable Bake (Vegan, GF)
Bright Side #3: Skylar Smiling!
Bright Side #4: A batch of Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Snack Bar. 3 bars ready in 3 minutes. Can’t beat it.
Bright Side #5: Thinking about making Kale Chips (Vegan, GF, use oven or dehydrator)
From my last post about Caffeine and wondering if you’re addicted to it, or if you’d like to become caffeine-free, thanks for the caffeine comments. Everyone was really jazzed up to talk caffeine. Pun intended. Many of you enjoy your caffeine in coffee and tea and have no plans to change. Some of you are caffeine free already. Whatever works for you.
Dessert. In honor of Fat Tuesday and New Orleans where Bananas Foster originated at Brennan’s in 1951.
And this would be Bright Side #6: my Vegan Bananas Foster
Bananas Foster involves flaming, alcoholic bananas
That’s a brown mixture of: vegan butter, brown sugar, rum, and banana schnapps. Slurp.
1. Has your week been going by fast, slow, or average?
Average pace, but just as busy and hectic as ever!
2. Do you try to look for the bright side?
I do because it makes life easier and more enjoyable not to focus on the negatives in life. We all have them, but why dwell on them.
A glass half full attitude is the way I am and even though I do have craptastic days, I try not to dwell on them because like my grandma said, tomorrow is a new day and everything is better in the morning. I’d have to agree.
There’s also the Law of Attraction: What you put out there is what you will attract. I’ve posted about this before.
Put out happy vibes, and happy vibes and happy things will come back to you. Even if it’s not always true, it’s a good intention to have.
3. What are some of your bright sides today, this week, or lately?
My bright side is that I just got in from a fabulous workout and 20 minutes of at-home yoga.
Happy Fat Tuesday! Don’t Drink & Drive and Be Safe!
