Let go of the anger, let in the awesome

Confessions of a Rage-a-holic.

Join me on this roller coaster called life as I search for awesomeness. Join me as I open my eyes and notice the people, events and things to be grateful for, from the simple to the extravagant. Ride this roller coaster ride with me- close your eyes and hold on or let go, open your eyes, put your hands up in the air and wave them like you just don’t care!!! This is my gratitude journal. Hello, my name is Suzanne and I’m a rage-a-holic… I hope by writing this blog and gratitude journal that I can let go of the anger and let in the awesome.

White chocolate Peanut Butter cups with honey on top

I needed a little treat so I decided to make peanut butter cups with a little twist. I used white chocolate instead of milk chocolate and I put honey on top. I think the end result was pretty tasty. These might be one of my new favorite things.

I also made dark chocolate peanut butter cups with honey on top. The results were good but I must say that I enjoyed the combination of the white chocolate and honey the best. To make these little treats, you only need three ingredients.

1. Melting chocolates in a flavor of your choosing- milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate.
2. Peanut Butter- I used crunchy for more texture.
3. Honey

SO EASY!

Melt 1 measuring cup of the melting chocolates in the microwave on high for one minute. While that is melting, spoon one tablespoon (or more) of peanut butter in a cupcake liner. Stir the melted chocolate until smooth and then pour it into the cupcake liner with the peanut butter until covered. Drizzle honey on top of the chocolate. Place in the refrigerator until hardened (about 30 minutes). Enjoy!

Another one of my favorite things is sharing my homemade treats with friends and family. It’s fun and also….sharing is caring.

Jaxx and Magster save the day

This Tragic Tuesday was beginning. As I sat in the room working on my gratitude list of my favorite things, Magster and Jaxx walked in. I was so consumed with my list, I didn’t even recognize their voices saying hi to me. Magster noticed that I wasn’t breathing. Thank God, because I didn’t even notice myself. What a change of mood these two brought for me. All of the sudden, I was no longer on my way down the roller coaster. Uh-uh. No tragic Tuesday for me! I was on my way up or as I like to think of it, on my way to awesomeness. Jaxx and Magster saved the day! We chit chatted about the little things, because sometimes it’s just the little things that are all you need.

So today I am grateful for my friends. Friends are there to lift you up. Even when they don’t know that they are doing it, just by being there, in the same room, smiling, laughing, giggling and sharing stories, being present with you.

It’s going to be a Terrific Tuesday today.
