“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”
Were words my dad uttered often when I was younger…
I used to think that if I couldn’t vent, I would just BLOW UP!
My blood pressure would rise from my pent up feelings…
I would over indulge on kabocha, pumpkin & honey scones or Peanut Butter Scones with Chocolate Drizzle!

I would become bitter…mean…angry…just plain awful to be around!

But,
He wasn’t so wrong…

Making an effort to look for the good in a situation or person, actually is freeing…
Even though at times it is very, very hard…
And, let’s be honest, a good old vent session works wonders for one’s pride in the short run…
Trying to stay positive and channeling all that negative energy into actions, is great for the soul-and heart- in the long run.

This week I had to work really, REALLY, hard at reminding myself of my dad’s words, of their soul and heart healing properties…
Specially when I was venturing into venting and blaming…

You see, I used to work for a happy-thoughts-inducing company that got bought out…and, these days I have had a hard time trying to understand the reasoning behind the policies of the new owners; I know they must know of the life changing choices their decisions are causing…I have entertained many unrighteous thoughts contemplating it all…
But, I know that I need to channel it all into looking really hard for a company that shares my same values…
And while I am searching…I will be feasting…

On these scones yall!

I finally ran into a big case of kabocha at my grocery store and after gorging on a whole roasted one in a couple of days, I figured I would have to do something different with the next one to make it last longer…and voila! Kabocha, Pumpkin & Honey Scones – with Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter they are absolutely divine – with peanut butter slathered on – they are medicine for my soul 🙂

Sorry to hear your outlook of your work company has changed since the new owners took over. Have you thought about telling them your feelings? I'm sure if you're feeling down, others must be at all. No matter what you do - I just pray that things turn around for the better <3 <3

Thank you Jessie, yes, I have spoken with them - unfortunately their reply back began with "due to the needs of the business..." I think you can guess the rest... A lot of us are not happy - but, my take is instead of staying and complaining, if Icannot change anything, then maybe I should be looking elsewhere ... we will see what The Big Guy's plan is for me....
