I Let You Go

"Have you noticed, I've been ignoring you?"


"Why haven't you said anything?"

"Because it doesn't bother me. I am no longer interested in people doing things only because I want them to do it. "

"So you're saying you don't care about me anymore? "

"I'm saying I don't care to make you into something you are not. "

"Which is what? "

"Someone special to me."

When holding on becomes to painful. Release. The pain after letting go is healing the wound. Stop letting people tear open the same wound. Stop feeding people in hopes they will feed you back. Don't let another person's attention mean more than you self worth.

Instead spend that time feeding yourself. Use that energy to make yourself feel good. Build yourself up to the point of never being in this situation again. Realize you have value as you are this very moment.

It'll hurt. It'll be hard. It'll also…

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Finally we have Chicken and Sausage (chicken andouille) Gumbo! It has been a long journey to get to this point. I had to order gumbo file from Walmart online first and foremost.

I love this gumbo so much. It reminds me of when my (grand) mother use to make it. She would have chicken, shrimp, crab legs and sausage. Since I am not a fan of shellfish, this is as close as I can get.

With school back in session and harder semester ahead, this meal is definitely comfort food, stress relief and self care!
