I'm Not Giving Up

There are many challenges in life. Some of them require strength and fortitude. Some of them require that we not do things we want to do. These times test our souls and the strength of our will. I must admit, I don't have much will power when it comes to passing by afternoon tea. 

The doughnuts in the picture above are gluten-free, made in my mini-doughnut maker for a darling girl who cannot have dairy or wheat. The frosting is raspberry flavored and topped with violet sugar. 

If you think you are "giving up" things, it makes you sound, and feel, defeated. If you abstain, you are in charge, in power and have made a choice. 

I choose to find solutions. I choose to take a potentially sad situation and find a way to find some joy in it. I choose to claim my power, my options and embrace my BoHo Mojo.

Learning selflessness
against my inclinations
Winter into Spring
