Diverse Perspectives

It’s easy to view the world around us from a singular perspective, but how often do we walk in someone else’s shoes to gain added perspective? How often do we consider the factors that influence their decisions? How often do we look at the causes of an action, instead of just the results? When we dare to step away from our perception of how things ought to be, it frees us to experience diverse perspectives. Then, we are not so quick to judge, find fault, or cast blame. When we observe circumstances from someone else’s standpoint, we have a tendency to understand and to care. Do someone a favor today — take a second look — from their perspective.

This New Year

As you enter this New Year, dare to try a little harder, go a little further, sing a little louder, or run a little faster to reach your goals. Dream big and believe in your ability to succeed. This New Year, you have an opportunity to live a better life than you lived last year. Stay grounded, stay focused, maintain balance, and persevere.

Happy New Year!

Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries from Nutmeg Nanny

1 pound of large strawberries
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3-4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depends on how sweet you want the filling)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or use almond, lemon etc.)
Graham cracker crumbs

1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top and clean out with a paring knife, if necessary (some may already be hollow inside). Prep all strawberries and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill strawberries with cheesecake mixture. Once strawberries are filled, dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.

Prep time: 10 minutes, total time: 15 minutes.

Must try!
