cereal for dinner

It is important to remember that value does not come from a check list of to-do's, how well I cooke dinner, or even if I got to the gym that day. When beauty fades, and my skin begins to sag, when I burn blueberry muffins... it's inner beauty and the heart that matters. It's a lie to believe a person is worthless when they fail. We are all beautifully and wonderfully made! We are worthy of love and joy! Take heart when your biggest critic is yourself.

Sometimes I miss the single days of coming home and playing my guitar for hours on end and eating cereal for dinner while watching 20/20, doing a face mask, while wearing sweatpants and an oversized t-shirt. Now that I am married I put so much pressure on myself to have dinner ready by the time my husband is home, and the house perfectly tidy. Not that those are bad things to do, in of themselves. But it's also not bad to once in awhile enjoy the day, forget to make a meal and have breakfast for dinner. If it's that important for your hubby to have meat & three for dinner, and he doesn't like the idea of raisin bran, then he can whip something up. I'll be honest though, my husband enjoys just about anything I give him to eat, and he's just as grateful! Take heart when your biggest critic is yourself.

  1. It's the failing that leads to success! Remember the old saying.... Anything worth doing is worth doing right? Well, while there is some truth in that I would also say... Anything worth doing is worth doing wrong at first, second, third try! Just think where this world would be without the trials and errors of those before us! And, who doesn't love breakfast for dinner? In fact, that's what we are having tonight!
