Love is Food and Food is Love

I decided to post a few yummy Valentine’s Day treats! Mentioning that there is absolutely no shame in making these for yourself either ~.^

I think food that is for any kind of love, should be comforting you. However, comforting food CAN BE HEALTHTY. Sometimes I’ll show my body some love, with fruit or a healthy snack. Comfort and “love” food can be healthy and unhealthy.

The first one I’m going to show you is chocolate biscuits! Sounds boring, but my partner and I (luckily) both love the Subway cookies. There’s usually a “fight” for that last biscuit. So this recipe is a bit of a variation of those cookies.

Fudgy-wudgy chocolate cookies

So while not exactly like Subway cookies, I actually found this recipe looking for them. I’ve had baked them a few times and they always go quickly.

Strawberries dipped in stuff

Now, normally I have to buy these already made, because … well to be honest … I have no patience to wait =D Haha.

Croissants

Well, French is love … Right? And you can put so much on them! Eggs, jam, cheese, avocado, ham and cheese. And now you can make gluten free croissants.

Seafood … Well, I wont post a link to this. I am sure you all have recipes or meals with seafood, that you love. I’m not a big fan of any type of Oyster myself, but I hear they are a aphrodisiac.

What foods and treats make you feel all warm and gooey inside?

Obligations

I don’t know if men experience this too, but I am sure the ladies know what I’m talking about.

There’s always that one person, usually one of the opposite sex, who every single time you sign onto a social media platform, that also had DM’s or you can privately chat.

They’re there “Where are you” “What are you up too” “Can we chat” “Why wont you chat with me”.

It is REALLY annoying! And also really puts me off wanting to go on, which I guess, isn’t totally bad.

People, we don’t have to chat to these … I don’t know what to call them … Obligations

You should never ever be obligated in a friendship to chat just whenever they want. You are under no obligation to chat with someone when you don’t want to. I actually was a little shocked the other day when I post a message to someone, something that I thought they’d like. And they did say “thank you” But then ended it with “I thought you had forgotten about me”.

Like, come on. If you want to chat, see that message I sent you? You send one back through that. Communication is a two way street.

Posting a post on FB, Twitter, Insta … doesn’t automatically = I want a chat. If you want one though, ask.

My Goal for February

Right, I don’t know how this is going to go. However, since February is the month of “love” What with your Valentines Day, Library Lovers Day, showing some love for Black History Month. I am going to try and do nothing but posts about love.

Now, I don’t means just lovey dovey stuff. I mean posts about loving yourself in a G rated manner, maybe PG rated, haha. Posts about love for your family, friends, romantic love, love for your fur, feathery, scaly babies. Probably with a sappy lovey dove post.

I already have a couple of posts for next week, I’m going to see if I can change them to make them more about “love” But I’m not promising anything. You might be able to tell.

Never give your energy to Hate

There is a very good reason why you should never ever HATE someone. I include, murderers, rapists, pedophiles, animal abusers. When you hate someone, that’s a very powerful emotion to have. While I don’t blame the victims for hating their perpetrators, and THEY should do so. For us to hate the perpetrators, take’s away from the love and energy you should give the victim INSTEAD.

Now, I am not saying on ANY level to love a perpetrator, but spend YOUR love on the victims instead. Don’t hate the perpetrator, LOVE the victim instead. Also hate is such a wasteful emotion. What’s that saying…

Love it or leave it

I’m just letting you know that if you walk in and I see you with a t-shirt saying “If you don’t love it, leave it” I am probably going to instantly dislike you. As I did when a student walked in and was wearing a t-shirt with that saying, with the Australian flag all over it. I have never understood that mind set.

It is absolutely possible to love something or someone and realise they have imperfections. It is possible to love something or someone and want better for them. I love Australia, but it’s definitely (like a lot of countries lately) got flaws. If you don’t like people saying “We can do better” than you leave.

If your family, friends and/or relationships are not perfect, do you just walk away? Of course not, you help them. It’s a ridiculous notion that we all can’t improve in some way…Except for animals, they are pretty perfect!

Some of these “Godly” people need to remember that God is Love, not Hate

Love…

…It’s never seems just a simple thing, does it?

This is going to seem like a weird post for a magical Monday post, especially when it may not seem so “Magical” of a post.

I think it’s kind of sweet when Trump supporters genuinely believe that Trump loves his country. I don’t though, but only for one reason. This is going to sound mean and I genuinely don’t mean to sound that way. I just don’t think Trump knows how to Love.

Too me this was proven with one comment:

Trump

Then I found out recently he called his other daughter Tiffany “fat”. What kind of father says that about their own daughter? I don’t care if it’s true or not. A girls first introduction to be treating well, is her father. If there’s no father, then a father figure.

Do you hate?

I got asked an interesting question the other day and it did make me think. I was told “I could never see you hating someone, have you ever actually hated someone”.

I don’t think I have.

Don’t get me wrong, on the spot, I definitely have hated people in the moment. I definitely hate what a lot of politicians have done, and I definitely hate what that has then perpetrated.

In my own little circle of life though, I don’t think that I have hated anyone.

I think it takes a lot for me to hate. Hate is such a powerful notion to myself.
