Staying Positive!

Attitude of Gratitude

Sometimes we all need that friendly reminder of what we should be thankful for. The other morning I woke up tired and not myself, you can say I was even grumpy. Of course the day just didn’t start right. Moving some items around in the washroom I had a picture come crashing down and break. This I can tell you did not make things any better.  Then a few moments later in the kitchen, I knocked a glass of water over everywhere. Now it was something as small as these little upsets that I said to myself why I am getting so mad.  I started to laugh at myself because I clearly was not in the right head space. I cleaned up the picture, wiped up the water and started thinking what I was grateful for. I put on some music and my whole day turned around. Don’t let the little things get you down, and if they do, catch it, accept it, and move on with a smile. 

And to keep that smile today, I made some Birthday Paleo Cupcakes for Mike.  No I didn't forget his Birthday earlier this week, tonight is just family dinner night!

Check them out...

I baked them, then cut them in half and added icing in the middle AND on top, soooo tasty. I made a cashew vanilla icing for them. The recipe is easy and delicious:

1 cup unsalted cashews
2 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons of vanilla
¼ teaspoon sea salt

Take the unsalted cashews and soak them in water for 2-3 hours. When that is finished mix all ingredients in a food processor or blender. If it gets too thick just add a bit of water as you go to get the consistency you would like and you’re done! Ice and Enjoy!
