Double Trouble Peanut Butter Cookies
When life hands you a lot of disappointment and frustration, bake cookies. Bake lots of cookies and then consume most of them. No fighting words are needed when you have a mouth full of cookie goodness. Am I right? That’s my life lesson for the day and maybe for the week.
I’m almost 24 years old…almost. In my 24-ish years, I have kept some friends close despite distance and the occasional disagreement. I don’t know about you, but I’m an extremely loyal and honest friend. Sometimes people hurt or disappoint me and vice versa. I suppose it’s human nature to not always be 100%. And yet, I always support, love, and nurture the people who are near and dear to me.
I’m learning slowly but surely to let go of the people who do not genuinely appreciate me in the same ways that I do them. Hence the dramatic cookie eating fiasco this weekend. Letting go is difficult. It’s delivered a series of scrambled feelings. Firstly, there’s a little bit of sadness because I no longer have what I once did. On the other hand, the loss of friendships provides space to heal and take more time for myself. Perspective. I pride myself on being strong despite the setbacks and my “humanness”. So, I’ll continue to persevere, make new friendships, and bake my normal-sized heart out!
Now that we’ve had this mid-week heart-to-heart, let’s eat some super fun cookies. If you like chocolate and peanut butter (because let’s be honest…there’s probably 3 people on earth who don’t like that combination) then join me and try these on for size. If I could have cookies as friends, I totally would.
