It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when we have done nothing to renew our way of thinking. So often we go to the same places, eat the same foods, and hang with the same people. How can we find new solutions in life and gain a fresh perspective unless we surround ourselves with people who don’t just think the same way we do?
As we face transitions in life or difficult times, it becomes obvious how imperative a fresh mindset is. If we can examine our mindset, the people we spend time with, the places we go, and even the things we eat, we can likely find a relationship between our habits and are lack or abundance of progress.
In this episode, I explore some of the ways I keep a fresh perspective.
As we have entered the last quarter of the year, many experience a change of pace. Some speed up in a rush to get it all done, and some slow down because “it can wait till 2018”. Or maybe you’re one of the fortunate on track types, and are slowing down because everything went according to plan. 🙂
I want to encourage you and remind you there is still time. You can do so much with the last quarter of the year. You’ve learned from experiences and can work well under pressure. You can take advantage of the slowed pace of others, and zoom past to the finished line.
Take a listen to my latest podcast as we bring this year to a successful close:
I have always found the combination of cucumber and melon to be a nice clean scent. I was curious about how they might taste together. Both cucumbers and melons are so refreshing on a hot day– lots of flavor from the melon, and a nice light flavor from the cucumber. Desiring to keep this recipe simple, I used few ingredients. This medley is in a category of it’s own for it’s combination of sweet, salty and tart flavors. I hope you and enjoy it as much as I did!
4 cups of melon, cut into 1 to 1.5″ cubes
2 cups of cucumber, seeded and diced
1/2 cup plain feta crumbled
1/4 fresh mint leaves
Sea salt (himalayan)
Combine melon, cucumber, mint (roughly chopped) and feta tossing well. Mix in 1 to 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil, and the juice of 1/2 lemon. Mix in 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt. Refrigerate and serve chilled. Garnish with additional mint leaves.
