Nourish Together - Weekly Newsletter - 9/8/21
Hi, Sweet Friends,
Welcome to Nourish Together, a compilation of wellness products, practices, tips, and inspiration I'm loving right now. Plus, any updates that I feel are awesome and worth sharing.
I hope you find value in the content.
Recipe of the Week
Fun Fact: I used to work for Taste of Home cooking magazine! One of my favorite TOH recipes is the Mediterranean Layered Dip. It’s such a fun and delicious take on chips & dip, and is a hit at parties.
To make this recipe even easier, I use Roasted Red Pepper Hummus instead of separately adding the peppers. It’s just as tasty.
This past week brought some pretty intense disappointment.
After allowing myself to “feel the feels,” I started thinking about what message the challenging situation was trying to teach me.
I’ve done a lot of research on the Law of Attraction, and trusted that the contrast was actually an opportunity for greater personal alignment. It is through contrast that we experience what we don’t want, and ultimately helps us clearly see what we do want.
I recognize that this may sound “woo-woo,” but it was so soothing to me to trust that the challenge was meant to give me greater clarity.
I’ve used this clarity to take action, and I now feel empowered.
My encouragement to you is to “feel the feels” when something not-so-awesome happens to you. Then, when you’re ready, reflect on how the contrast is leading you closer to what you actually desire.
One of My Favorite Things (NOT sponsored, just sharing a product I use and love)
Self-Love Workbook for Women: Release Self-Doubt, Build Self-Compassion, and Embrace Who You Are
This book is a beautiful road map that leads to deeper self-love.
Following are the goals that I wrote down when starting this workbook:
- Soften my inner critic, especially around body image
- Release unrealistic standards
- Establish and uphold my boundaries
Without a doubt, I’m making progress on these goals.
“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving yourself and see what happens.”
