Vegan Chocolate Mousse Smoothie

I hope everyone had a marvelous weekend! I know I sure did. I learned a lot of things, and preoccupied myself with actually enjoying my family and friends.

I had planned on being busy, but seeing that I wanted to have a change of pace, I cleaned my already clean house (because I am a clean freak, I think), I got to throw away a lot of old papers that were stacked away in a closet, and I even got to make some of my healthy and sweet coconut fudge truffles to share with my husband and some friends. Yes, I use my own recipes!

I really enjoyed getting to spend time with my friends and family though. Often I get so busy that I forget to spend time with the people that matter most to me. Work can cause that, school can cause that, charity based activities can cause that, even social media, but most of all it’s your decision.

It’s your decision to take back your life – to take charge of it, rather than allowing it to steal your joy. The people all around you were put into your life for a reason, make the most of it and show them you care.

With that said, I would just encourage you to take some time and be happy. Happy within yourself and with those you love. Take time away from the internet, phone, and all of your activities that keep you busy and remember to tell the people in your life that you love them. It is one thing to love people and a whole different thing to love them and tell them that you love them so that they know.

So there is my little thought, because I care.

Now on to food because that is what you came for…
