We all know where our recipe inspiration comes from: the plethora of [food] blogs, Pinterest boards and – potentially still for at least some of us – cookbooks. But – at the risk of letting this introduction become too deep – do you ever wonder or know where your randomness inspiration comes from? It’s something that makes me smile because I usually think I didn’t know only to look back and find that some of it was inspired by a recent happening or something I read. Okay, if you read all of that: thanks. And the superior randomness inspiration obviously comes from Amanda right there! Thanks for motivating us to think out loud.
1. Keeping up with seeing the good – or in this case: funny – in the bad I found a trick to making my current leg pain better. It’s ridiculous but: standing one-legged. It gets my hip to balance itself out and least for the next metres of walking. Picture me looking like this. Yes, I’ve done that in the office and I share one with my boss and colleague. And yes, we can just picture myself looking equally as graceful, okay?
2. Following the title of this post the thought of yoga inspired me to think of this movie. Which then again made me reminiscene how much of an Olsen Twins fan I used to be. Any others? Due to the fact we didn’t have cable for most of my childhood I didn’t get to watch Full House at home but only at a friend’s house.
3. Don’t you get curious to find out what happened to your former childhood idols? Thanks to the internet it’s not hard to get the full report on post-Full House happenings these days.
4. Does this need any explanation?
Well, that would be a mug cake mix. Say what?! Any blogger will shake their head at the existence of mug cake mix in a bag, right? I didn’t take a closer look at what exactly it contained but the ingredient list was long. More than just a little ridiculous when you know it hardly takes more than for a delicious mug cake. Plus all the variations people are missing out on if they falsely believe storebought mixes were necessary and don’t start experimenting themselves.
5. If you find yourself in need for some reading inspiration:
I just finished this book in two days. Needless to say it’s a quick but not insignificant read. In case you haven’t heard of the author before: Waris Dirie’s a Somalian model turned author and female rights activist. More exactly she – being a victim herself – is fighting against female genital mutilation (FGM). Still, the book’s not a heavy read but very personal. In case you’re interested in finding out more about Waris’ story I’d recommend starting with ‘Desert Flower’, her initial autobiography. By now Dirie has written five books, four of which I’ve read. She might not be the most captivating writer but the story she has to tell is one that matters.
6. Last but not least I’m wishing you a happy Thursday with this sight of Spring.
Happiness inducing today: Did I mention sunshine yet??!
Stay in touch!
