Happy Independence Day!
May you all have a safe and blessed day!

When we tell others how our day will be, I think it kind of sets something in motion within our subconscious to strive a little harder for it, because now there are others watching. Wow, I might just try that! It makes sense, and I don't know anyone who enjoys letting others down. So, if I confess it with my mouth, and here for you all to read, it will cause me to be more apt to stick to the plan. I'm not just going to say that I "want" to do something--I'm going to say that I AM going to do something. I AM going to measure everything I eat today to get correct portion sizes. I AM going to exercise today. Notice the difference? Woohoo!

This blog may be way off topic for some of you, but I just wanted to share with you how great it feels to be so in love with someone that you would literally do anything for them! This is how I feel about my boyfriend, Brent. We have been together for a little more than two years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how every day I fall deeper in love with him. I had been through a few bad relationships in my life, and I never dreamed that God would bring someone into my life who not only was my lover, but who also plays the roles of a father figure, best friend, teacher... really everything that I never thought I would have all at once in my life! He has extremely keen perception of others, and he is helping me to get over my own skeletons. I don't know why he puts up with my antics at times, but he is helping me to spread my wings and become the person I have always wanted to be. It took me quite a while to discover just who I am, and while I still feel like I'm in my cocoon, I know that I'm about to emerge as a beautiful butterfly, and this man will be right there with me when I spread my wings and take flight.

Today, on Facebook, my friend, Leslie, posted that she liked a recipe on Pinterest for blueberry muffins that you make in a mug. I looked at the ingredients to see if I had everything to make one, and I sure did! It was so easy to make, like literally from scratch, and my boyfriend, Brent, had me make him one, too!
Here is the recipe if anyone is interested: budgetbytes.com/2013/02/blueberry-mu
There, now that I got my Betty Crocker fix, I feel like I want to try a bunch of other easy recipes that are budget friendly and have step-by-step instructions so that I don't screw anything up!
I also braved the crowds of people and made it to church this morning, something I had been wanting to do for a few weeks now. Somewhere down the line I developed a sort of social anxiety to go anywhere by myself. I really dislike this trait about me, and I've decided that I need to start looking for opportunities to torture myself, all alone, in bigger groups of people, until I can get used to being out and about by my lonesome self again. I could be going about this all wrong, but I don't like going to a therapist much anymore, either, so I'd rather try this feat on my own.
