Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we care about is called passion.
– Simon Senek
This is something I have worked towards everyday of my life. I have come across my work of stress and my work of passion. I have worked hard towards my passion in becoming a therapist. Along my way of hard work I have come across lots of stress. It takes time and lots of work to get to your dreams and that is what I work towards everyday.
What work do you do? Stress of passion?

You know more than you think you know. You’re aware of more than you’re consciously tuned in to any given moment. Quiet your ego and your deeper wisdom will surface.

I’ve spent some time thinking of this quote today. Wondering how this can be applied to my daily life. I’ve decided I wanted to take this quote and to think about and apply it to my life. To look closely at what is happening around me. To see it for what it is right in front of me and not what I want it to be.
I love Tacos! I love Mexican food, if my husband would allow me, we would have it once a week. However, he is not a fan of tacos and Mexican food. So I have found some ways for him to enjoy them more. That was all going back to the basics. He cannot say no to me making things by scratch and making things simple.
So I started off with making homemade tortilla shells. Then changing up how I cook the meat as well.
- 3 cups flour
- 1t salt
- 1t baking soda
- 1/2t sugar
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1c warm water
I began mixing the dry ingredients together and then adding in the wet ingredients. I finish mixing the ingredients by hand. I then divide it up into 8 smaller sections and roll into balls. Allow it to sit for a few. I then flatten with my hand at first then using a rolling pin. I then place the rolled out dough into a pan cooking on each side until brown spots are formed and then flip and do the same thing. I use no cooking spray or oil to cook the shells.
The shells that are left over, we will use them for left overs the next day. Or we will freeze the remainder for the next time.
Next I make my homemade taco meat. I use about 1lb hamburger. Mixing in peppers, onions, salt and pepper. My husband does not like traditional taco seasoning so I make my own and try different things to give it a different taste and spice.
Tonight’s dinner was a great hit and loved it.
Of course you add in all of your fixings as well. We had black beans, retried beans, corn, sour cream, cheese and salsa.

Blogging and the struggles!
I am not the greatest at blogging. Remembering to blog and share with the world what I have to say. Believing that I am important and what I have to say wants to be heard. Coming out of my comfort zone. Pulling myself out of my inner shell and allowing my self to open up. Expressing myself to someone I have never met and knowing that that who ever reads this wants to know what I have to say.
These are some of the struggles I have ever time I open up my blog and decide I want to start this journey. Wanting to express who I am and the things that are important to me. But what it comes down to for me- is who cares. I know that putting my life out there that people aren’t always going to like or agree with what I am saying. That someone might have a different opinion. Someone might not always agree with what I am wanting to say or even cares. But at the the same time if they didn’t care about what I said, then it would not have opened up a post and read it. Words are always going to stick with us one way or another and even more so if someone says hurtful things. But we just have to remember that I’m the end we started this journey and we want to do this. We want to put our selves out there. We want led to take the time out of days to write up a post and to share it with everyone. We wanted to express who we are. We wanted to share our stores with someone or everyone. We wanted to share the things that are important to us. Because let’s be honest! If we didn’t want one of these things or something close to these things, then we would have never started a blog. We have to remember that this is for us and everyone else doesn’t matter. You are doing this for YOU and YOU wanted to blog.
-She turned her cants into cans, and her dreams into plans 🌺🌸
This is one of my favorite quotes that I look at everyday and remind myself that I am here and I am turning my dreams into my plans. Grabbing life by the horns and going where I want to go.
