Here is a fun and creative idea I just came up with. Sometimes it works that way. For those of you who don’t know, I love to cook I find it to be very cleansing for the soul and being able to see and taste something you create always fills me with a sense of accomplishment. Except for the one late December evening when half asleep I tried to bake cookies and mixed up the salt and the sugar. Even then they still looked nice. Back to my brilliant idea. Ok, in my mind it is brilliant, but trust me my mind is one place we need not go. I was creating a casserole tonight from a cookbook my grandmother left me when she passed away. Perhaps it was her inspiration that put this idea in my head, but either way I encourage all of you to try it. If you do and it works out remember my birthday is July 29th and feel free to send me a copy of your creation. If it doesn’t work out, feel free to just send cookies.
Back to being serious, which is rare for me. The cookbook I was using was one of those with the spiral binding. As I flipped through the pages an idea came to me. What if I could create a ‘motivational/inspirational cookbook’! On each page could be a different idea for staying motivated and creating the amazing life we all deserve! It gets better. I know all of my ideas, you know all of your ideas, but we do not know each other’s ideas. So get your self a blank set of recipe cards and hand them out to your friends, neighbors, family, co-workers or anyone else you can think of. Explain you are making a special cookbook and could they give you their secret recipe for staying happy/motivated/inspired whatever word you wish to use. You may even give them a self-addressed stamped envelope so they can take their time and mail it back to you when they are done. You might want to skip that kind of odd crazy friend you have though. Ok, you can include him, but just put that recipe on the back page. When you are done you will not only have created an amazing list of new ways to improve the quality of you life, but you will also have gained an insight into what makes your friends happy. That can come in handy on special holidays like…I don’t know birthdays that fall on July 29th. Ok, my friends, let’s get cooking!
