First outfit post with my new hair! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I changed my hair colour about 2 weeks ago. It’s actually completely different that the colour I was going for, but the unexpected turned out well. I’ll keep this look for a bit and maybe I’ll surprise you guys with a new colour in a couple weeks/months!

I’ve been thinking about what stepping out of my comfort zone really means and how talking about it isn’t the same as doing it. We are creatures of habit and it’s easy to get used to the same daily routines. As the saying goes – doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is insanity. So I need to consciously choose to do something different and plan to vary my routines. Success takes hard work, but if I remember to work from a place of rest, then I won’t be drained.

And as I mentioned in this previous post - worrying is a sin. So this week, I’ve been more aware of my thoughts. Instead of worrying, I’m practising letting go of concerns and control. Since I trust that in the end it will be good, there’s no need to worry. I’m also learning to be more bold with asking for what I want. If we never ask, then we’ll never know the answer. A ‘no’ won’t kill us, it just means there’s something better waiting for us ahead.

This is a flexible recipe, since you can add any desired amount of ingredients to your own roll. You can leave slice up all the ingredients and keep them in the fridge. Then whenever you want to make a roll, dip one rice paper sheet into a bowl of water, lay it out on a plate and add quinoa, vegetables, roll up your wrap and dip into the peanut sauce. I tried to make some rice rolls ahead of time and save for later, but unfortunately the rice paper becomes hard if you don’t seal them in an air tight container. Therefore, it’s fresher if you plan to eat them right after you make them.
