Understand It’s Not (Usually) About You
How often has this happened: You text a friend and she doesn’t respond. Your boss was brusque, or maybe you get a cool reception from a playground Mom. Your first thought is: “Uh-oh, what’d I do wrong?” Probably nothing. Though we tend to assume that others’ behavior is a direct response to some inadvertent thing we’ve done (or not done), it’s actually rarely about us. “We’re good at creating these fictions in our minds, but they’re often based on emotions, not facts,” explains Didi Zahariades, a personal coach in Portland, Oregon. “When someone’s really confident, she can run into a crabby person and just say, ‘Wow, they’re having a bad day,’” says Zahariades. “And then she goes on with her own day.”
So my promise to myself for this “un-manic” Monday, is to realize that I am NOT the center of the world. Others do not care what I wear, look like, smell like, or………..eat! That is my biggest problem. I fear others judge the way I eat. I am letting it go, so that I can have an “Un-Manic” Monday (And Tues, Wed, Thurs………)
(OK so MAYBE, just maybe, some people would notice the above picture 🙂 )
So before you think people are judging YOU. STOP and tell yourself….they are not! They have bigger fish of their own to “fry”. Do what you want to do. Do not worry about being judged. In the end, all that matters is how YOU feel with your decision.
So my mom has an abundance of tomatoes. Yes I do love them, but I love them VERY thinly sliced on my sandwiches , diced very small for salads, and clean and crisp for my salsas. Sooooo, I can only eat so much! I’ve decided to make some homemade marina sauce! I found a recipe that freezes and keeps well!! PERFECT!! J
Crispy Cauliflower tacos
