Christmas Countdown Day 8

During Christmas time there are many recipes for drinks that people make and it brings back the memories of Christmas pasts. A longtime favorite is hot cocoa, it is a drink for all ages.

This weekend as the temperatures chill, yes,  I know Florida chill as compared to our Northern friends is a big difference, make some hot cocoa

and take some time to sit and look at the Christmas tree or sit by the fireplace.

Enjoy the chill in the air, and just simply live life.

Life is so short to live it in a rush and worrying about all the things that need to be done.

Here is an old fashioned hot cocoa recipe:

Heat 3/4 cup milk in a saucepan over medium heat unti just before boiling.  Remove from heat and transfer to a large mug.  Stir in 1 ounce coarsely chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate pieces.  Let stand about 30 seconds then stir to combine.

Life in a Fog

Have you lost your focus in life? As an author I get questions on a daily basis asking me where do I get my inspiration to write and how can they get on track with the things that they want to do in life.  My reply is always to focus in the silence before making a move.  In other words, as we travel along the road of life, we encounter areas of fog that impeded us from seeing ahead to what is in front of us.

When we are driving the car of life, we may look in the rear view mirror at what was just passed and think, if only we can change what happened we could change our future.  The reality is that we need to look ahead and not focus on what we left behind. The issue is that our vision is clouded in a fog and we can’t focus on what we are to do next.

Many things can cloud our vision with fog for instance stress, illness and lack of motivation. What we can do is to take some time by ourselves to refocus on what we are supposed to do with ourselves.  We can pray, write our thoughts and allow our gifts (we all have them) to guide what we want to do.  No matter what we do in our life, we all have a God given gift; something that we are very good at and that should be something that we use to channel our time when we are not working.
