I wanted to make rice bowel yesterday for dinner, but didn't have time. So I opted for a quick pasta dish - pasta shells with trader joe's excellent tomato& basil sauce with a splash of cream to color it nice orange pink. It was surprisingly delicious, and we finished the entire thing. Making food makes me happy.
I need to appreciate the progress I've made over the past year:
I eat more fruits and vegetables now
I cook much more often
I go to ballet, even if it's only once a week (when it's not hot)
I clean the house
I read, and finish, books
I write in my happiness book, in my notebook, and in my blog
I come over to my parents' 4 days a week
I try to control my anger
I have a lovely apartment with beautiful furniture
I am in control over my finances
I caught up to the podcasts I missed
I stopped going on reddit and buzzfeed for no reason
I am mostly content.
