🌾 Today’s Poem ~ Houses of Dreams

Houses Of Dreams
Sara Teasdale
You took my empty dreams
And filled them every one
With tenderness and nobleness,
April and the sun.The old empty dreams
Where my thoughts would throng
Are far too full of happiness
To even hold a song.

Oh, the empty dreams were dim
And the empty dreams were wide,
They were sweet and shadowy houses
Where my thoughts could hide.

But you took my dreams away
And you made them all come true —
My thoughts have no place now to play,
And nothing now to do.

👊 Today’s Power Thought ~ Keep Moving, Don’t Quit

The bottom line, no matter what is happens, no matter what will happen, life asks us to go on, not to quit.  Let’s give it our best.

✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Searching for a Story Idea?

“Every idea is my last. I feel sure of it. So, I try to do the best with each as it comes and that’s where my responsibility ends. But I just don’t wait for ideas. I look for them. Constantly. And if I don’t use the ideas that I find, they’re going to quit showing up.” ~ Peg Bracken


🍎 Today’s Health Tip ~ Hummus is a Powerhouse of Nutritional Benefits

Quality Hummus is a Go To Choice for Nutrition

So is hummus healthy? If you make homemade hummus with real ingredients or buy a quality store-bought hummus then yes. Basic hummus recipes contain six healthy ingredients: chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, sea salt and tahini. 

Here are the top eight hummus benefits:

      1. Good Source of Plant-Based Protein
      2. Fights Illness and Disease
      3. Decreases Inflammation
      4. Helps Digestion and Intestinal Health
      5. High in Vitamins and Minerals
      6. Supports Bone Health
      7. Protects Heart Health
      8. Boosts Your Energy


NOTE: Be cautious and read the ingredients when buying hummus. My market offers a wide variety of hummus. Yet, only two products are made with extra virgin olive oil. I limit my choices to these two products.

🤗 A Better Life ~ The Fire Will Burn Out

A lot of disagreements can be squelched by not adding an extra log to the fire. I know it’s hard to hold back, especially when every nerve seems to be on fire. You can change the subject, suggest you think about it, or thank the other for their opinion. Let the extra log stay where it is.

💡 Something to Think About

Does everyone have a piece of you but you? Is it time to set boundaries and carve out time for yourself? Knowing one’s boundaries frees one’s self to focus more on what is important.
