Let me start by saying that, at times, in life as a relationship evolves or become stagnant, it can either change and improve or disappear. I am at that stage....
I am doing all that I can to change. I have been working for quite a while at getting ME back. I have made this blog to help in the process of transformation. In the past year, as you know, I have had hardship in my personal life, (hello newcomers, read my About section, LOL!) but these past two weeks I have taken it upon myself to ask another for a change; a change that I wanted for for a long time but was unable to go after. In the past year, I have worked so hard to become the stronger person that I am. I have made stronger personal relationships, family connections and business commitments. But most importantly, I have renewed strength in my personal and love requirements and I hope that will make all the difference.
At times, in life, I have learned through my experience, and through some trusted friends experiences (who I love more and more each day because they were willing to share their heartache with me,) people loose sight of what is important. For whatever reason, life has a way of throwing each of us into situations that, at the time we are not ready to deal with. While it might break us for a while, and distract us in our path, it does not mean we don't know the way.... It just makes us more able to define ourselves and what as individuals makes us happy. And there is nothing wrong with a little self discovery, as long as it leads you in the right direction in the end. In the past year, this is a path that I have traveled.
There are some really scary questions I have been asking myself lately. Will my personal change come in enough time???? Will others be able to forgive???? Can love overcome everything else????..... And unfortunately, I don't have those answers but I am ever hopeful and full of love and commitment.
I have included this recipe for this post because it is a super simple recipe that anyone could make. It was one of my Mom's favorites for that reason. I am not sure where she got it, but it was a staple in my house growing up and still is present every year at our beach trip and multiple other occasions. In this post, I have changed the original to make it evolve with the times; a little complicated, a little difficult to define but still the original recipe we all fell in love with; a lot like the people I hold dear... Is your recipe ready to evolve.... to become better than it ever was.... to change..... mine is!
