Love Letter #76 | The Garbage Truck Broke Down Outside my House

Garbage trucks smell beacuse of the fusion of waste that goes in them. They’re not cleaned as often as they should be and if they are cleaned frequently, it’s not a proper clean.
Never. And, I mean never allow yourself or the vessel you use to dispose of your figurative garbage to stay filthy.

Love Letter #73 | Germs!

I often feel like I’m at war. Who will win? Me or the germs? I vote me. 1. Prayer works and all…but – Wash your damn hands! #Soap #Water #Friction
2. Stop touching your damn face!
3. For the love of God! Cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze. Don’t do it in bare hands!

Love Letter 63 | Raking Leaves in Wind

No matter how fool-proof your technique is, the wind can sway your efforts. It’s a matter of how you make your technique work for you despite the environment.

The Night Baker | Altering the Recipe

As the flawed beings that we are, we sometimes forget to work towards achieving balance. We get sidetracked with achieving so much that we focus all our energy on the end product and not the individual aspects that add up (the ingredients).
Yes, we want the A-plus product but the ingredients have to be just right.

Love Letter #49 | Baking under the influence

All our actions happen because we are under the influence of something or someone. Whether or not we’d like to admit it, it is the truth.
There are people, concepts and other living and non-living influences that impact (whether positively or negatively) the decisions that we make daily.
It might be a role model, a point of view and it might be vices such as alcohol or drugs.
The onus is on us to determine whom and/or what is good for our lives in any given moment.

The Night Baker | Repurposing 

No matter how rough your situations may appear to be, never forget that the option is there to purposely repurpose your life; Repurpose and improve who you are, Repurpose the situations when that power presents itself. 

The Night Baker | No need to bake

Life is not as complicated as we make it out to be. There will be times when the answers to our problems are already manufactured; no need to dive into elaborate planning and execution. No need to reinvent the wheel. The answer already exists, no need to create it. 

The Night Baker | Baking Easy

The key to ensuring that the end product is top notch has very little to do with where you start or what you use. How you use what you have to attain the end product is the most important factor. 

The Night Baker | Cleaning the oven 

Self care is important. You have to schedule regular clean-ups in your life. With grime and baked in spills,  you’ll still function. However, you’ll never function optimally if you do not clean regularly. Once you start cleaning, you’ll discover other areas in your life that require cleaning. It might get a little messy and that is alright; that’s part of the process. 

The Night Baker | Daytime Baking 

Never be afraid to try new things in your seemingly tried and tested solid plan of execution. There is ALWAYS room for improvement. Like baking, life is not a science. As such, nothing is hard and fast. Do not look at the process as being a potential win or fail. You have to trust the process and allow yourself to experience the “new and unheard of”. This is the only way you’ll grow. Being imaginative and open minded will lead you open up doors and windows for greatness.
