Smooth Sailing?

"Smooth seas do not make for skillful sailors." -unknown

We learn and develop when times are tough. The lessons learned can then be applied to make things smoother and easier. If you never have opposition, how can you begin to understand what works and what doesn’t?

Courage and faith are needed to get you through, hold on and stand tall. When you make it to calmer seas and look back on what you endured, you’ll see it’s exactly that low point that marked the beginning of change and growth!

Own Your Imperfections

We tend to fall prey to the need to live up to an impossible standard; to be flawless gods and goddesses in our exterior appearance, mannerisms, profession, and sometimes even in our personal relationships. Failing to achieve the impossible only cracks our esteem and causes us to focus more on striving to reach “perfection”…an internal, self-perpetuating cycle of destruction that can and will break you down.

The early teachings of Zen masters include three most important precepts:
All things are impermanent.
All things are imperfect.
All things are incomplete.


Life isn’t about beauty in perfection but rather beauty in imperfection, especially that cultivated by nature…which includes ourselves. Own your imperfections, confidence is sexy!

Berries and Cherries Make Sweet Treats Indeed

berries and cherries
March is National Berries and Cherries Month, a special time to celebrate the use of these succulent fruits in our salads, desserts, and candies. Berries have origins in both Europe and here in the United States. Native Americans were the first to incorporate berries into their diets and lifestyle, berries are now appreciated worldwide.

Here’s a deliciously healthy cookie recipe using fresh cranberries:

* 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter

* 1 3/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

* 2 large eggs

* 1 1/2 tablespoons honey

* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 2 cups all-purpose flour

* 1 (18-ounce) container uncooked regular oats

* 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries, coarsely chopped

* 1/2 cup golden raisins

* 1 tablespoon grated orange rind

* 1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped walnuts

Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and next 3 ingredients, beating until blended.

Gradually add flour and oats, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in cranberries, raisins, orange rind, and walnuts. Shape dough by 1/3 cupfuls into 1/2-inch-thick rounds on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

Yields two dozen cookies…ENJOY!
