Pea Flicking

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Yesterday, I was emailing back and forth with a good friend, and she recommended I flick some peas off my plate. Often times, I put a lot of stress on myself, and I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a total control freak/people pleaser. Everything always has to be perfect, from our house, to my blog, to my body, etc., and I think it’s about time I learn to relax. Normally, I can’t stand for things to be out of place, and I love a good routine. However, my life is about to turn upside down in another month, and I’m hoping to let go of some things. I can’t please everyone all the time, and that’s okay. An important reminder for us all (myself included): If we don’t love and take care of ourselves, then we really can’t love and take care of others. So, I encourage all of you to remove those issues that you feel responsible for – the ones you can’t control. Just let them go – flick ’em right off your plate! :)

In the meantime, here are some peas I think you should keep around…
