The Basi(c)s of Happiness Comes From Within, Period.

There is a fine line between your happiness and the happiness of others...
Do you know this line?

It hurts my heart every time I see someone whom lacks self love and/or is co-dependent. They move from relationship to relationship, (place to place, situation to situation, material item to material item,) and think as long as those around them are happy so can they be as that is the only way they know how to find some form happiness. I say some form as it is not true happiness. It is actually a sad and very vicious cycle. A cycle that we can only break ourselves.

What We Put Out Into The World Comes Back To Us.
Over the years I have noticed that my attitude and mindset directly effects what surrounds me in the world. The most effective way for me to put this is;

easy peasy, DELISH asian beef dinner

I found this recipe on Pinterest; this is a recipe make over.
I have copied & pasted the original and will add my changes in with bold print, or with a line through the type if I do not agree with the statement/did something else :-) 

Why I like this recipe/meal?
1. It is a really inexpensive and quick meal.
2. It looks and tastes gourmet (good for a quick dinner to impress).
3. It is really delicious.

Ingredients1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar (I like it sweet so I usually do closer to 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup soy sauce (I use low-sodium Gluten Free)
1 Tablespoon sesame oil (has to be sesame for the desired flavor of this dish)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced (see note)
1/2 - 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (to desired spiciness)
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, diced (don't skip this!)

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil. Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper…

Life just keeps flying by!

Is it really already mid-September?!? Holy cow!!!

With the change of the season my internal balance has been a bit off. I relate it to the likes of a bear getting ready for hibernation; more tired/fatigued, binge eating, and moody lol
Thankful for the changes I have made in my life the last 9 months. Truly do not think my body or mind could cope right now if I had not.
What's going on that I need to cope with?
Well... I had my 1st Art Show :-) the stress leading up to it was crazy to say the least. The actual show had a positive response.. people liked my art = phew ;-)
(You can view my art at Deluxe Tattoo, Steamboat Springs, CO, until the 27th of September. You can also purchase it through Deluxe ;-)

As well I was/am still working full time in the General Contracting Industry, as well as trying to run my business in Summit County; I say try as my temp phone does not like to cooperate with me and is making it pretty difficult to run my biz.
Plus side is my boss and I are working …
