Good Monday morning, dear friends. It is the Monday of Holy Week for us, and it begins with a dusting of snow and some cold temperatures. As they seem to do, our weekend went quickly, but it was full of productivity and rest. Yesterday we prepared our saintly meal, and while some rated it very well, others were not quite so sure! As someone who has Italian blood in her veins, I found it delicious, if different from anything I have tried. The pasta sauce included crushed tomatoes, garlic, pine nuts, and golden raisins. It called for sardines, but we decided to leave those out. Wise decision.
Today will be a quiet day as everyone returns to work. Flynn is going with Madison for a while, so I will be home alone. I have an impressive amount of laundry waiting for me, as well as a brand new book I have yet to crack open. Dinner tonight is Cheeseburger Casserole with fresh fruit, and that will be our day. I hope your day is cozy and happy, my friends.
I have had several readers and friends message me about my recent post on anxiety. I want to share two things today for anyone who is or has a loved one struggling with anxiety. I came across the webcast I shared with you in that post purely by chance, and I am beyond thankful I did. The presenter, Ken Goodman, is a licensed clinical social worker who has spent years helping people overcome anxiety. I will link his website below. Ken has literally changed the entire way I see and deal with my anxiety disorder. If you are dealing with anxiety, I urge you to visit his website and look around. I purchased his Anxiety Solutions Series and downloaded it onto my laptop. I listen to a chapter every morning, and I have to tell you that it is helping me tremendously! He explains the root of anxiety disorders, all types, and provides tools to help overcome them. There are chapters available on his website to listen to for free, so you can get an idea of how he will help you free yourself from anxiety.
In addition, he authored a self-help coloring book that I use every morning as I am listening to the series or anytime I want to relax. I am not being compensated for this, nor is this any type of ad. I am sharing this with you from my heart because it has and continues to help me so very much. Trust me, I have read books, downloaded apps, took surveys, listened to podcasts, and nothing has come close to Ken's approach and care.
Ok. I am done! Just a little PSA to start your day!
Visit Ken here:
Have a cozy Monday, my friends.
Thanks for visiting.
I am always happy you do!
