Creamy Coconut Oats with Roasted Strawberries

Creamy Coconut Oats with Roasted Strawberries - The Sunday Table (2 of 3)

At times I get totally disenchanted with city life. When it seems all I hear are sirens, helicopters, trains and cars on the freeway, I feel the need to escape. I need open roads that lead to fresh air, morning birds chirping, crashing waves, wind through the trees, crickets and frogs croaking in the evening. I cherish these weekends away where a day can feel like three, in the best of ways. Days where the only the only important thing to do is feel gratitude.

Healing Chocolate Shake

Healing Chocolate Shake | The Sunday Table  (5 of 6)

I’m still finding my way. Wandering down the long path of finding myself again. Revisiting things I’ve long since abandoned, letting go what I once thought I should be doing and discovering little joys I never thought to look for. A lot of it has to do with soul searching. A lot of it has to do with being open. But mostly it all comes down to letting go of expectations. And boy, that’s a lot easier said than done. Living a life full of expectations is destined for discontentment. Looking at yourself, the ones you love and the world around you through a lens of what is lacking leads nowhere positive. Sure there is benefit to seeing potential, to inviting positive growth and change but only through a lens of optimism and hope, not expectation. This is my grand challenge in being mindful. A natural planner, it’s hard to let go of this idea that I have any control over my life and the way things go. But how beautiful it is to give into the great unknown. To see things for the way they are in the moment, free of outward context, free of judgment. I have to remind myself again and again to let go, to give in and to enjoy life for all that it is. Some of life’s most beautiful moments come from the simplest of experiences.

Gluten-Free Lemon Olive Oil Cake with Raspberry Glaze

Gluten Free Lemon Olive Oil Cake with Raspberry Glaze - The Sunday Table www.thesundaytable.com (4 of 6)

“You’re no sunset, you’re no lair
You’re the beauty I admire
Burning love, hope, and desire
You’re the woods at night on fire
Oh I miss you when it’s cold out
Church bells ring I hear you sing out
You’re no broken record turning
You’re a wild melody
I know I might not be the one you take
Take my love
Take my love

When you told me you can’t sleep
Count your sins instead of sheep
Count the ways that you feel weak
but that is not what I see
You’re no wreckage, you’re a fighter
Scrape the sky by your on power
Sound it loud above the water
You’re a wild melody

I know I might not be the one you take
I’ve got a heart that ain’t afraid to break
Take my love”

– The Lone Bellow  “Take My Love”
