Yay Power!

Good morning blog world! Today’s post topic is 2 sided (I love when things work out that way).

1) I am very excited to have not been without power for very long. Thanks to Sandy we lost power about 7pm on Monday but had it back by 3pm on Tuesday. WTG BGE!!

2) Is more the feeling of power (or powerlessness, is that a word???). I went back to work yesterday after a week of vacation (much needed) and realized that my heart just isn’t in it anymore. Once you have been told you are too valuable to promote, well then, what’s the point in trying? What is the motivator to be better or do better if there is nothing to strive for?

I started reading “The Happiness Project” and it is very interesting. I’ve been trying to incorporate some of her ideas into daily life. So yesterday when I came home early from work (no internet) I answered the necessary emails and then I cooked a pretty decent meal. I find when things just are not going my way, I cook. I’ve tried once to cook for a living but it just didn’t appeal to me. I prefer that it is my therapy. That’s also why I am a Tastefully Simple consultant. I love to cook so I love to sell the stuff!

Last night my therapy was Maple/Dijon Salmon (oven at 350. bake for 10 minutes. Mix 2tbsp dijon and maple syrup to taste and spread it onto salmon, bake for another 5 or until it looks done) Wheat organic pasta (so yummy must find more) and collard greens (boiled then sautéed in butter, oil, and bacon bacon (yay Tastefully Simple). I actually mixed the pasta and the greens together but kept them separate for the picture.

Yay food porn, lol


So what is your “get away” therapy?? I’d love to hear how others deal with stress!

  1. I’ve been wanting to read that forever now!! Glad you’ve gotten power again! My sister in manhattan still doesn’t have any!! Hope your day is fantastic!! Spa ❤

  2. I never ended up finishing the Happiness Project (ironic, I know), but from what I did read, I loved it. I started following Gretchen’s blog, too.. She does have such simple, easy advice about cleaning up your life and how to prioritize.. One of my favorite things was if you have something that will take less than two minutes to do, just do it. Love it.
    I have to go back and reread it now.. hehe.

    Crazy about the hurricane, but happy you’re safe and got power back!! Sending some GGS ❤

  3. Sorry to hear about your work situation…I also have a lot of stress surrounding my job, so I know the feeling. I use my workouts as my fuel to de-stress and clear my head. Though I wish I loved to cook, your food looks amazing!

  4. Glad to hear everything is ok with you! And your delicious spaghetti :-). Too valuable to promote? What sort of manager says that – that’s a sure fire way to leave employers feeling empty and bored, and, ironically, leads to the loss of those valuable employees! Good luck with everything.
