Pea Flicking

by HEAB on October 20, 2010

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…
