Shrimp Soup

Have you ever heard the expression that some of the most important things in your life will happen when you least expect it? Has anything important or life changing happened to you lately? Are you too caught up in your "responsibilities" to notice...?

Sometimes you've got to stop and smell the roses. Don't get so caught up in life. Granted certain responsibilities are, well, responsibilities (like feeding the baby, walking the dog, putting gas in the car). But stressing about things like work, relationships, finances, the ozone layer... can really reek havoc on your body and mind. Dissect each situation one at a time. Remember that you are accountable for your actions, and you have the ability to affect each situation. And don't ever forget, live for you.

And the next time a cute guy or girl flashes you a heart-stopping smile while holding the door for you at the supermarket, you will notice because you weren't obsessing about a project at work. Maybe you'll even strike up a conversation. Exchange phone numbers. Get married and have babies. Hey, I'm just saying :)

So lets keep it simple today with an easy, stress free meal sure to help you kick back and relax!
