My Thoughts

It’s a peaceful Friday night. Just what I like. I’m a person who is honestly content staying in. Especially after a long week. Of course I do enjoy going out and about. But most of the time, by the time evening rolls around. I’m exhausted and I have no energy. Most likely it’s because of all that Candida in my body. Makes the most sense.  All day I have been meaning to get one here…Oh and yesterday as well, but as soon as I get on my computer to type. I get distracted….by Pinterest. Have you heard of Pinterest? If you haven’t it is an addicting site. It doesn’t help that I have bad ADD. It’s a wonderful site if you do too ;)  I find myself just scrolling and scrolling….and scrolling. And somehow end up with about 20 different tabs. You can follow me here. I’m seriously addicted to it. Especially wedding ideas. Maybe one of these days I’ll get off of Pinterest and plan my wedding ;)
Earlier this week, I had a baking day. I made my brownies. But also I made cupcakes. Well, sadly they didn’t turn out. They are gluten free red velvet. For those of you who may not know. I make cupcakes. I can whip up cupcakes really fast. Even gluten free. But red velvet I haven’t made. So I followed a recipe to a T….and they just were a mess. I still can’t figure out where I went wrong.

Aren’t their looks deceiving?
I knew from the moment the batter was all mixed up they were going to be weird. So I thought I might as well whip up icing and make them look pretty. I could sit here and say they are the most amazing cupcakes I have ever made, but I don’t do that. I can’t lie. Everyone makes mistakes when trying new things. And I’m not perfect, and these are a result of that. And I’m okay with that. I know next time, I will just go with what I’m thinking, rather than following a recipe. Yes, I bake so much better when I don’t follow a recipe. It’s weird but it’s how I’ve always been. Or I take a recipe, but add my own spin on it. These were suppose to be cute ones for Valentine’s Day, but now they are awaiting their new home in the trash can. Oh well, on to better things!
These little mistakes got me thinking. So my advice for the day, and future days. Don’t worry if you don’t succeed at something the first time. If it’s a dream, a goal, or a lifestyle change.Don’t give up. Because the time that passes by while you’re wondering if you should try again. You could have already achieved that goal. I try to apply that to everything in life. No, I’m not the most positive person you’ll meet nor negative. But I’m trying my hardest to find the good in life and enjoy it. I love seeing people happy, and making people happy. What fun is it if you are living unhappy? My life is NO WHERE near perfect, let me say it’s NO WHERE near perfect. But I make goals and have dreams and try to take the steps to get there. Not towards a perfect life. You’re crazy if you think anyone has a perfect life. That’s just not possible, but towards the things I want to do in life. Don’t stress if things aren’t going your way right now. Maybe there is something better waiting for you in the future, and you just have to be patient.
You’re probably thinking, how did cupcakes make me come up with this? Well, I have a very deep mind I guess and it’s just how I think. I try to find inspiration in anything I possibly can.
Cheers to happiness
