This blog is moving!

Hey guys!

I've just decided to make some big changes to this blog, including a new address.

Will you come visit me at my new home? All the same content from this blog will be carried over, but the new spot will have a new design, URL, and hopefully some fun new content coming soon!

I won't be updating to this address anymore, so if you currently follow my posts either by email subscription or in a reader, and you wish to continue to get posts from me, go on over to my new blog MIX IT UP and click "follow" or "subscribe" on the top right!

New blog design project is underway now, so check back soon!

Be kind to yourself

I've been pretty AWOL lately, hopefully I'll be checking in soon with some recipes and projects I have worked on recently.

In the meantime, something I have been thinking about:

Earlier this year I made a resolution to end my habit of negative self talk. I realized what a truly hard time I give myself. I judge myself for how I look, talk, act, and especially for whatever negative things I assume other people think about me. This is such a negative pattern!

And the sad thing is, after speaking to several of my friends about this- all beautiful, admirable and seemingly confident people- it seems each person I spoke to is just as rough on themselves. I know it's not such a huge surprise, and the negativity with which many people (especially young women, though honestly people of all ages and genders) think about themselves has been part of an ongoing conversation in so many venues for a reason.

If you are reading this, I urge you to evaluate how fair you are being to yourself in terms of self judgement. Take a moment to remind yourself all the things you like about yourself, and make a conscious effort not to be so mean in the future.

Ok, I'm gonna stop my cliche preaching now!

Check back soon, I have a lot in the works- from a new location for this blog, new design, some new recipes, and news about my upcoming cross-country move!
