Great Blog, Great Lessons

I’ve been reading a lot more blogs lately and recently found a great one, Ashley Rodriguez’s Not Without Salt. One of her recent posts lists a few lessons that she has learned, or re-learned recently and some of them I found truly inspiring.

A few of my favorites:

“I am not perfect, nor do I want to be. So stop trying and stop the dissatisfaction when the perfection is not there – because it won’t be.” –for someone who has battled perfectionism, this speaks to me.

“Being happy for people is a lot more fun than envying them.” –so true!

“I am in more control of my life than I let myself believe. But I can also rest assured that ultimately it is not me that is in control.”

Thanks for the great inspiration Ashley!

P.S. her recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter Finger Candy looks to die for. I fully expect to make it and write about how it turned out on my other (food) blog, The Petite Gourmet.
