The Resolute Rye Loaf Fable

8048869091?profile=RESIZE_710x

Emma always baked rye loaves at home, so she knew the recipe by heart. Even with distractions, she still got the ingredients right. But somehow, she missed her measurements this time around. 

Realizing her mistake after seeing a slower than usual rise, she exclaimed, “Oh no! I didn’t use enough yeast in the dough. Now my rye loaf won’t rise.” 

Upon hearing Emma’s calamity, Regina thought to herself, “Well, I’m not going to be the first of Regina’s loaves to end up flat...I’ve got to think of something!” 

Regina knew how tough it would be to rise with less yeast than required. But she contended that anything is possible when…

You heard it when you were a kid. It is nice out, go out and play. Remember laying in the grass? Running barefoot in the grass? Playing hide and seek in the woods? These were not stressful times. Being a kid was only part of the reason for the lack of stress. Nature had its calming effect then, also. You may have been pushed outside at first, but once you were outside you did not want to come back in. Part of the reason is that nature calls us to her. Did you know that there are many mental and emotional health benefits in getting back to nature?7988157692?profile=RESIZE_400x

Sorry. 

It was out of your mouth before you could even think about it, but now that you’ve had a second to consider what just unfolded, you realize it wasn’t your fault. You were walking through the mall, and the other person ran right into you because they were too busy looking at their phone. Yet, you apologized, and they kept on walking without uttering a word.7939057480?profile=RESIZE_400x  

Does that mean that you are a people pleaser? Well, it might. 

There’s more to it, of course. It isn’t just about immediately saying sorry to someone, even if it’s not your fault. What people-pleasing is, is a difficulty in establishing your boundaries. It’s something that everyone struggles with at some point, but people-pleasers find it downright…

"I think I might switch fields and start baking bread. My dad always said when I was young, "Some days you eat the bear and some days the bear eats you". I've had a few days of getting eatin recently. I gotta keep getting back up and moving forward. Some days it is draining and feels like too much. Turning negatives into positives is challenging, but worth it. "

"Oh yes great article.  I needed to hear this message today because my thoughts on my music being successful have turned negative at times.  Now that I am in this I am seeing that the www is an ocean of musical artists and I am throwing my tiny drop of water in there now,  Fear of not being noticed due to the quantity of material out there now, "

"Yes, all of this. And especially right now with the crips, cool air. The changing color on the leaves, the notion that cold weather and hopeuflly snow is on the way. Which is the best thing to me, not the majority. In addition to being outside, playing and getting fresh air, is the lurking notion that Halloween is on its way in less than one month!! Getting excited over here.
I get some of my best ideas when I'm running, outside in nature. I love playing outside with my kids, one of my favorite…"

"Yes!  When I am in nature I feel much more at ease.  Great reminders to get out and take a long walk.  When home I spend as much time as possible in my backyard looking at the trees and my bird feeders.  It reminds me of God's omnipotence.  Marveling at God's creations is a form of worship for me and brings me closer to God. "
