Banana & oats mash

BACK TO CHILDHOOD BANANA & OATS MASH

Remember those sweet childhood days when your mum would make you a soothing and heart-warming DIY meal? The one which would cast all of your worries away and lighten up your heart after just first bite? With a big loving smile on her face, she would look at you emptying the plate, and reward you with a soft kiss or a cuddle of joy after the last bite…

There is no other feeling in the World that could beat mama’s TLC! I am sure that these loving memories are giving you beautiful chills down the spine right now…

New Years' resolution

HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY NAIL YOUR NEW YEARS’ RESOLUTIONS – and more :-)

The end of yet another calendar year has arrived. As it is tradition, amidst of all those festivity parties and overindulgence in food and drinks, that tiny voice of reason inside our head starts getting louder and louder. Well, the voice of reason might not be the best word to describe it, but you know what I mean – it is that “good guy” inside us who is yearning for something more meaningful and fulfilling.

I am sure that over the last couple of days, many of us have faced a moment of serious pondering. It is those questions like “How would I describe the past year?”, “How well have I treated others and myself?”, “Can I do better?”, “In what way can I improve quality of my life and develop myself further?”

This is great stuff by all means. Self-questioning and desire for improvements is necessary if we want to lead better quality lives in all areas. The only “tiny” issue here is, how drastic/realistic are you with your resolutions?
