Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Are You Kitchen Brave? Part 2 of 2

  

Walking into the kitchen of our mind can be quite a daring experience.  We may stand at the pantry staring blankly at the ingredients before us and wonder, what am I going to use to create a special treat filled with the sweet taste of success.  How many times have we done this at our desk? Sat there and wondered what our next move will be.  It was when we were daring and followed a different path, spiced it up with something new, that we succeeded in our endeavor.

When baking we have a basic recipe.  The basic recipe for us is that we can think.  Thinking of new ways, recipes, for our success and prosperity to be brought into fruition we dared to test the waters and moved forward with our ideas.  

Creating the cake, the icing and the filling, you break a few eggs, add milk, flour and sugar and the rest of your special ingredients which in the end makes an absolutely delicious creation!  The cake is the outward appearance, the icing is your success and the filling your feeling of joy and well-being over what you have accomplished.   Get that glass of ice-cold milk, sit down and enjoy your sweet end product.

When creating a cake, cupcake, or cookie we can deviate from the basic recipe, add our special and unique touch.  For instance, when I make a white cake I add more vanilla extract; if I want to make a lemon cake I add lemon extract, lemon zest and vanilla extract; creativity in the kitchen is a must.  Creativity and imagination in living a life of success and prosperity is part of the basic recipe, add those different ingredients, our special talents and abilities, we make it our own.  Each of us are only limited by our imagination and daring to be different.  We can create a unique sweet sensation that not only has never been done before but also be a success. What is this sweet product?   It is our success and prosperity created in our own mental kitchen and baked in the oven of belief, knowing and acceptance that it is already successfully completed and in our life now. 

As stated before, life like baking can be tweaked.  If a recipe doesn’t come out the way we imagined, we learn from what we did and go back to tweak the recipe by adding or deleting an ingredient.  If our endeavor is not going as planned we need to be flexible enough to tweak it and if necessary toss it out, should have seen what I tossed while creating my recipes, and start all over again with the knowledge we have gained and our willingness to move forward and not be hindered by our mistakes, others remarks or negativity toward our goal(s).

We are the deciding factor in our life. Who and what we allow to influence us, be it in a positive or negative way, as we go forward will either sweeten or sour the end product.

Your success is just that, YOUR SUCCESS attained by YOUR DETERMINATION, YOUR ENTHUSIASM, and YOUR DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE AND PLAN OF ACTION. 

CREATE AND BAKE A NEW NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE SUCCESS FILLED LIFE.  THE INGREDIENTS ARE THERE FOR YOU!  PUT ON THAT APRON AND BEGIN SIFTING THE FLOUR WITH A SONG IN YOUR HEART AND ON YOUR LIPS.  LET YOUR IMAGINATION, YOUR DREAM, YOUR DESIRE BE YOUR CREATIVE MUSES.

Are You Kitchen Brave? Part 1 of 2

  

Are you kitchen brave?  Are you brave enough to be you in the kitchen of life?  Are you willing to walk into the kitchen of your mind to experiment and create your own unique recipe for success, prosperity and overall well-being?  Are you ready to break some eggs and mix things up? If so, continue reading and get ready to bake up some new exciting recipes for life.

We are always creating through our cooking, our baking, our thoughts and beliefs. Life has given each of us a mind and every moment of every day we have a variety of thoughts that shape our character.  Our thoughts, beliefs and concepts are the batter and dough of our life, we are forever taking the formless and giving it form.  From the mixing bowl of thought to the oven of life to solidify our creation.  We live in the kitchen of life, the kitchen of personal creation.

Creating recipes in the kitchen are about learning from what works in a recipe and what does not.  Some of our creations don’t turn out the way we planned and we have to go back to the recipe and make changes learning what will work to bring forth our desired creation.  Life is about learning what works for us and what does not.  From this learning experience we can enhance our life in prosperous and successful ways.

If we are truly interested in making our lives more fulfilling and more reflective of a robust and prosperous life then we must step into the kitchen of our mind and begin to create and bake a new way of manifesting the life we want, no more sitting at the kitchen table with a glass of ice cold milk waiting for the cookies to be set in front of us. It is time to be proactive and get our hands covered in flour and roll out the dough, ready the oven and get ourselves in gear.  Get your apron ‘cause this is gonna be one heck of a baking session. 

Basic ideas/inspiration can be gained from; books, quotes, perhaps a platitude or two, or positive affirmations and informative articles which can begin to stir the creative juices. But until we decide to do something with these inspiring pieces we will only have the warm fuzzies and nothing more. Time to utilize our inborn talents and abilities and make the life we dream of and desire. The time has arrived to take action for our own self-improvement, which in turn will affect the world around us in positive ways. Time to get into the kitchen and create the cookie of your dreams!

Get out the electric mixer, flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda, the basics of the recipe.  We all have the basics at our finger tips; the challenge is what we are going to use to make it our own unique recipe. Are we going to use ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon extract, almond extract, add nuts or poppy seeds?  The combinations are endless and we can create the recipes we desire and if it is not to our liking we can change it up and make it better.  It is merely a batter of mind, no pun intended.  When we have mixed the ingredients together it becomes a batter or dough, to create a cake, a cupcake, a cookie or a jelly roll, perhaps cinnamon buns, the choice is always ours. What do you feel like today?
