Alternate Fairytale Series: Winning the Battle and Rewarding Yourself

Hey Everybody–

The last time we chatted I had an emotional down time that I had to fight through.

Well I fought.

By that Friday, I felt great. I felt accomplished because I battled my emotions and came out victorious. I also went to see a play version of one of my favorite movies: The Wiz. It was SO GOOD! I really enjoyed myself ( and I looked really cute too!)

I also fold myself in things that make me happy. I love art. On a coffee run this morning, I discovered these billboards that captivated my spirit. They were peices that reflected historical and unfortunately current racial/political climate. I was so moved.

I also love to cook! I descend from a long line of great cooks. I always cook poultry. Today I wanted to try my hand at steak. Now I’ve cooked steak before, but I bought a more expensive piece of steak this time. It came out GREAT!

I marinated the steak with sweet red, yellow and orange peppers as well as Serrano peppers and mushrooms. I seared it in the stove an then placed it in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. I am very proud of myself!

Being in a relationship and or married is AWESOME. But there are other things in life that are fulfilling. Sitting around sulking about being single will get you nowhere. When you have your lonely days, continue to battle. When you are victorious, reward yourself with the things that feed your soul.

We only have one life and no one gets off of planet Earth alive. No matter what, happiness is an inside job and solely YOUR responsibility.
