AdviceWithASide :: Happiness {Vegan Carrot Cake Bars Recipe with Pumpkin Nicecream}

Happiness.
It's something that we all want, though we grow to search for it more as we grow up, as worries evolve to become more consuming.




So we search for a way to fill a cliff fall of greed, an unappeased source of restlessness, the hidden calls of loneliness. Sometimes happiness is a choice, sometimes its a lifestyle that comes with many, many obstacles.


New Year's Resolutions can occasionally be a silent sign that you are completely miserable. You're trying to search for a flaw in your existence and convincing yourself that fixing it is going to be the key to a better life for yourself. That's a terrible cage to lure yourself into. If you set yourself up for failure, how are you going to take the hit with a new realization that there is something you want to change about yourself, but haven't?



This is not some kind of catharsis calling.


But I feel like I want everyone to hear the simple three things that are fulfilling enough for happiness. The secret to being happy. And it's really easy. Just love. And I know that it's so much easier to say than to do, but really - watch the video and hear me break it down for you.
I just really want to push in your face the idea that you are SO worth every little bit of life you occupy.

...

And also push in your mind a drool-worthy craving of this celebrated swirl of ice cream and pastry crumble - only HEALTHIFIED. I know, right? You have to try it.


Food Relation: In these cake bars and in this "ice cream," there are incredible superfoods hidden in the delicious tastes. I mean, pumpkin has colossal dosages of fiber that keep everything in your system running very smoothly. Carrots are full of beta-carotenoids that do your eyes good.
Basically, relate that to life. About how sometimes, it seems too hard to experience, or foresee, or know how events are good for you.
But sometimes, the goodness, the benefit, is just hidden.
