Happy National Banana Bread Day

This is a recipe I made back in October using a Fall themed Williams-Sonoma mold. I’m pretty sure I used this recipe from the Food Network Kitchen.

Fun fact:  It was with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s that banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks and appeared in Pillsbury’s 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook. Banana bread later gained further acceptance with the release of the original Chiquita Banana’s Recipe Book in 1950.

Fear vs Intuition

I learned an important lesson a few days ago. One that emphasized living in the present. Understanding that the only moment we have is now.

You see, I had been questioning how to separate fear from intuition. How would I know when a feeling I have is fear-based or something I should actually pay attention to.

The answer was simple, but one I hadn’t thought of. Fear is about the future. Fear is born from an expectation of what could be. However, the future, as well as the past, are basically illusions. They don’t exist. Only. Ow exists and that is where I tuition comes I to play. Intuition is about a situation happening in the present. In the only point in time, that matters.

It’s something to think about and remember when you’re fearful or getting ready to make a decision.
