Animal Spirit

Standard

I was born in March 13th. I’m a wolf.

WOLF (FEB 20 – MARCH 19)

The complex, mysterious wolf likes to sit back and watch the world around them, simply observing and taking notes. They can be hard to get close to, as they tend to hide their emotions and only show people certain parts of themselves that they feel comfortable with. Highly creative, intelligent, and artistic, the wolf spends much time in solitude, perfecting his craft. This is where the phrase “lone wolf” comes from, as they are fiercely independent

***

For the most part, I agree. I love alone time, which I guess is a really good thing since I’m alone ALL THE TIME. I’m definitely complex. Mysterious? Kind of? I’m an open book in many aspects though!

My husband, Doug, was born on February 2nd. He is an otter.

OTTER (JAN 20 – FEB 19)

Otters have a spunky, eccentric personality. On the other hand, they also excel at solving problems, and will never give up until they have an answer. Many people find them hard to read, but this doesn’t bother the otter. They see the world through a unique lens, and don’t care what anyone else thinks about them. Otters constantly crave freedom and adventure, but have a more gentle, empathetic side as well.

***

Again, mostly agree. He’s not eccentric. He is hard to read by many for sure. He doesn’t care what others think & hee completely content!

Unite

Standard

What I don’t understand about a lot of people who also battle things along the lines I do is that everything is turned into a competition. You have “X?” Well, I have “Y” and it’s worse.

No, no, no.

If that were the case, I would win MANY battles. That’s not what it’s about though. Being sick is NOT a competition and if it were, I DO NOT want to win. Hell, I don’t want to play. Period.

For those of us who wage wars daily with our bodies, we need to come together and support each other, not compare or battle each other. We may have different opinions regarding treatments, medications, etc., but what does that matter? At the end of the day, we are all sick.

Unite.

Unused Bravery

Standard

I’m pretty stoked about the new drama series about to start on NBC entitled, “The Brave.”

Why? Obviously, I’m a true patriot! But beyond that, it’s a part of me…bravery. I don’t mean to sound conceited or anything else horrible, but if I had to be one hundred percent honest, I would say that I am truly one of the bravest people I know. I wasn’t really given a chance to be anything but brave, however, I would choose to be brave either way.

I sit here and often question things. Why? Why was I made to be so brave and honestly, so incredibly strong and yet, I’m forced to be STUCK at home fighting illnesses. I understand that absolutely everything is God’s work. Everything is part of God’s plan. I totally get it. I just wish I understood WHY. God gave me the strength, the courage, the heart…and I don’t understand what I’m suppose to be doing with it, other than surviving incurable illnesses of course.

I do often feel I have wasted talent, stored strength and unused bravery.

If you look up the show on the IMDB website, the synopsis will tell you this:

”The complex world of our bravest military heroes who make personal sacrifices while executing the most challenging and dangerous missions behind enemy lines.”

The show fits my personality to the letter. I want to go in and help. I want to serve my country and do everything I can to protect, save and defend it. I’m smart, I’m adaptable (CLEARLY), I can crush challenges thrown my way and I’ve proved it time and time again.

USE ME. Make me useful.

Baking with Becca – Vegan Carrot Cake with Lemon Buttercream Frosting

Standard

This looks amazing & is a MUST try!

beccapbeauty

Carrot cake, one of the most loved yet strange cakes to find in a cafe.

Who ever first thought of putting carrots into a cake? It’s beyond me but my goodness, it works so well.

As I’m recently trying to eat more and more vegan things, desserts is the place of my downfall – I want cake, I want chocolate and I want creamy pastries. Due to this, I’m trying my absolute best to research and find new desserts to try – cake being my first venture.

If you haven’t read it already, I recently started my venture with this amazing lemon cake – The Most Perfect Lemon Cake – & it’s Vegan!

Next on my list – Carrot Cake – I found the base of my recipe on Loving It Vegan and make a couple of subtle changes to suit what I had in the house, along with my…

I’m a strong woman. And strength is beautiful.
