How to Deal with Hurt Feelings

Why is it that when I think my skin is finally thick, or that I'm too old and "sophisticated" to get my feelings hurt - WHAM!  Sometimes I think I'm too sensitive.  Is it because I'm a woman?  Am I being hormonal?

There probably is something to the fact that women tend to be more sensitive than men.  Little girls are taught in many cultures to be mindful of others and to put others before themselves.  There is probably some hereditary trait that is passed on from one generation, regardless of gender, to the next.  Being sensitive, however, is not a weakness.  In fact, it's usually the more sensitive ones who are the successful negotiators and they are certainly the ones we run to with a problem.

"You're so sensitive!"  Even that statement, albeit true, can be hurtful.  There are times that a flip comment would roll off our backs and yet that same statement given other circumstances can bring us to our knees.

If we are going to take mean words or careless words or thoughtless actions to heart then why do we dismiss compliments?  Shouldn't they go hand-in-hand?  Why are we selective and how do we move forward?

While we are searching within, there are a few things we can do to minimize the hurtful comments.


What is your Current Situation
Are you in a stressful situation?  Are you tired?  Are you in the middle of learning or trying something new? 

Consider the Source
Is this someone you trust, a stranger, or someone who is known for their rudeness? 

Remind Yourself of Your Strengths
Rather than getting upset over a hurtful comment or discussing the situation with someone else, think of all your strengths.  "You're a good person, responsible, always on time, keep a clean and tidy home." Then watch how quickly your mood increases for the better. 

Have the Person Repeat the Comment
Having the person repeat a comment is a nice way of having them look at their thoughtlessness.  It might also clarify your misunderstanding.  Who knows, maybe your mind was elsewhere and you didn't hear the statement correctly.

Count to 10 and then Physically Remove Yourself from the Situation



Hurt feelings are inevitable in this imperfect world.  Though we may be educated, we are not always the best communicators.

Sometimes we are mean like when trying to impress our friends.  Sometimes we lash out when we are in pain.  Picture yourself running late.  You're in the car and the lady in front of you stalls or doesn't know where she is going because she's in a new town.  You don't know that she's having a terrible day or that she doesn't know where she is going.  Instead, you think about how she is making you even later than you already are.  You find yourself lashing out at her incompetence to drive.

We are human.

We make mistakes and sometimes lash out at others.  If we were able to remove ourselves from the situation momentarily, we would certainly handle everything differently.  We would remain calm, put ourselves in the other person's shoes or calmly realize that an off-handed remark was nothing more than a momentary lapse in judgment.


The next time you get your feelings hurt, keep these things in mind.
  • It's okay to have hurt feelings.  They are a part of life.
  • Your hurt feelings are telling you something.  You might be tired.
  • You have a choice to hold onto your hurt feelings or let them go.  We are responsible for our own well being.  We can choose to be a victim and allow others to have control over our feelings or we can take charge.
  • Forgive yourself for allowing your feelings to get hurt.  This acknowledges the truth and allows you to move to a state of empowerment.


The most important thing to understand and realize is that you are more powerful than your hurt feelings.  They belong to you for as long as you want.  Own them, feel them, but don't allow them to pull you under.  Listen to the part of you that is hurting.  Allow its voice to be heard, love it, and then let it go.


How do you deal with your hurt feelings?  How did you feel the last time you inadvertently hurt someone's feelings?

5 Websites for September 2012

Websites I've learned about this month:

Last month we high-lighted 5 gluten-free websites and had a lot of fun.  This month, @Johnnyskitchenb lead with the most recommendations. Please join me in learning about these culinary websites.

Johnny's Kitchen

Johnny is "an Englishman living in the Mediterranean for many years".  He recently created Johnny's Kitchen and one that is surely to be around for some time.

"There is little in life to bring more pleasure than to sit around the dining table together laughing chatting, reminiscing and wining and dining on good honest home made food, made with fresh ingredients, care and love."

I truly hope you enjoy this gentleman as much as I do and have.



Bobbi has an amazing and uplifting story to share.

She openly states that she did not come from a "foodie" family which is incredible because you would not know it by her recipes.  Bobbi says she is "addicted" to cooking and prefers quality over quantity using fresh ingredients to enhance flavors.

She has been writing about food since 2011 and has won several awards.



Roast Duck and a Big Gooey Cake

Eliz, comes to us from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  Roast Duck and a Big Gooey Cake is the story of a kitchen renovation that transformed a family.  She captures our attention with stories surrounding food, adventures, and travels.  She shows us that food still unites and not only on holidays.

Eliz invites us to "Sit back, read on and stay awhile. There's a dish or story here for you, and plenty of room at the table."  Something I plan to do often.



The Sensitive Pantry

Nancy is a foodie and comes from a line of foodies.  She has always enjoyed cooking and eating and most of her recipes are gluten-free, egg and dairy-free.  Many of her dishes are vegan.

Nancy is not a chef but one would never know that.  She says, "I look forward to sharing with you, but mostly I look forward to what you have to share with me."




Vintage Kitchen Notes

Paula writes from and lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  She is very busy and talented; she writes a food blog in English (which is actually her second language), writes another food blog in Spanish, owns Cafe Montenegro and she says her "other job is in the decoration business.  Handmade textiles."  Whew! She's one busy lady.  Please stop by and visit her when you get the chance.


I am continually amazed by all the talented people and their craft.  Whether that craft be in DIY projects or cooking.  It is a blessing they are willing to freely share with us.  If you have a website or know of an author that you'd like to see showcased please let me know.

What You Might Not Already Know about High Fructose Corn Syrup

Mother Earth News

Did you know that High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) has been around and added to our food for over 40 years?

Is it that we are now becoming cautious of what goes into our bodies that we are reading labels and asking questions?  One of the first items, from a long list, omitted from many diets was Mono-Sodium Glutamate (MSG), and now we are battling bisphenol A (BPA) and high fructose corn syrup in what seems like everything packaged.

Sweet Surprise says "... many health professionals agree that whether it’s sugar from corn or sugar from cane, your body can’t tell the difference—your body metabolizes both the same way."  This may be a true statement if we were to eat an ear of corn or take sugar from the cane.  However, Sara Novak from TLC tells us, "First of all, there's nothing natural about high fructose corn syrup and it most certainly does not exist in nature. The process starts off with corn kernels, yes, but then that corn is spun at a high velocity and combined with three other enzymes: alpha-amylase, glucoamylase, and xylose isomerase, so that it forms a thick syrup that's way sweeter than sugar and super cheap to produce. That's why it's poured into a huge majority of mass produced processed foods."

Here are a some things to consider about high fructose corn syrup:


  • "Corn is one of the most commonly genetically modified foods."  Amanda Kimble-Evans
  • "High-fructose corn syrup is the primary source of calories in the United States."  Anthony Gucciardi
  • "High fructose corn syrup is made from corn, a natural grain product. High fructose corn syrup contains no artificial or synthetic ingredients or color additives and meets the FDA requirements for use of the term “natural.” " Corn.org
  • In 1864 New York's Union Sugar Company started manufacturing corn syrup - "a more reliable and cheaper sweetener".  EatingWell
  • "America spends almost four billion dollars on corn subsidies."  Sweet Disguise


Jennifer K. Nelson, R.D., L.D. states that "Recommendations from the American Heart Association — not a part of official U.S. dietary guidelines — say that most American women should consume no more than 100 calories a day from added sugar from any source, and that most American men should consume no more than 150 calories a day from added sugar, and that even less is better. That's about 6 teaspoons of added sugar for women and 9 for men."


What can we do if we don't want HFCS in our diets:


  • Buy a similar product that does not contain HFCS
  • Check to make sure that HFCS (if included) is low on the ingredient list
  • Buy organic
  • Most importantly is to read the label of everything and make an educated decision.  For example, one loaf of bread may have HFCS while another equally nutritious loaf will be sweetened with sugar or honey.  The decision is yours.
  • Realize that when eating out, there will most likely be HFCS in the food
In summary, I don't have any answers as to whether or not we should continue to consume high fructose corn syrup.  I do know that I try to buy items where it is not included and that sugar is fairly low on the ingredient list.  Hopefully this has aided in your education.

Weigh in with your decision and share your thoughts.  Would HFCS be better if the corn is not genetically modified?  Is HFCS really an issue?

Decorating with Feng Shui to Increase Your Wealth

Let's face it, it's tough in today's world.  More people are out of work, working two jobs, in debt or "under water" with their homes.

How is the ancient art of Feng Shui going to help?  It is said that through decorating your home or office using the Feng Shui principles you will reap the benefits of:
  • Better Health
  • Increased Prosperity and
  • Better Relationships
By making subtle changes to your environment you can positively affect your life.  The subconscious mind understands chi (the subtle flow of energy) even though we may not.

Think of a time when you walked into a store and the lights were too bright and the place felt harsh.  Or take the store that the lighting was too dim.  Did you feel clean or were you looking around wondering what was in the corners?  A room that is too bright can feel aggressive and one that is too dim can feel weak and secretive.

The same theory can be used with a room that is full of stuff.  Antique shops can often have the feeling of overcrowding so that the most beautiful of items aren't even seen.  Then an extremely upscale store can have only a couple pieces and the occupant can often feel like the center of attention and a little intimidated.

Both scenarios are about balance.  The more balanced and free of clutter a room is, the more comfortable the occupant.  When we feel comfortable, we are more open and artistic.  When we are surrounded by clutter, we are scattered.

A clean wallet or purse is another example of easily finding money and the overall sense of empowerment.

Getting back to decorating with Feng Shui and art of increasing wealth, focus on the flow of positive chi.


  • Remove any clutter.  Clutter blocks the flow of energy and can make you feel stagnate or irritable.
  • Surround yourself with items that speak of money.  This can be coins, healthy plants, or even a water feature.  This will be different from person to person or from one time to another.  Wealth looks or feels different to each of us.
  • The feeling of your wealth area should be that of abundance.  Does a bouquet of fresh flowers or a new paint color on the walls give you that feeling?  How about a gold frame to hold your first dollar or favorite art?
  • Keep your entry way clean and clear of obstructions.  This is the first area of your home or office people see.  What first impression do you want to give?
  • Own the best that you can afford (without incurring additional debt) and keep it in good working order.   Sometimes the cheapest items is the most expensive in the long run.

There are practical aspects about keeping a place clean and free of obstructions, treating items with respect, there is also a psychological benefit.  Often by clearing out and really seeing what we have and what is important to us, we can often see that we have more than we ever dreamed.

Are we paying to store our possessions in a storage unit somewhere?  Do we live in a house that is costing us too much so that we can keep our things?  What is inside our closets or cabinets?

So then, how can placing a plant or an object of art bring wealth or success our way?  Once we believe we are worthy,  then we will begin to receive.  If you can believe in the Law of Attraction then believing in Feng Shui is much easier since they both use energy and the universe to attract.

We don't actually see the energy flowing around objects.  I believe the magic of Feng Shui is faith.

Have you noticed a difference in your life since using Feng Shui?

Decadent Truffles

Decadent Truffles

The past few days, I've been craving chocolate.  Not any ordinary chocolate like a candy bar, ice cream, or cake but something that would melt in my mouth.  I wanted to feel like I was being pampered and getting away with something naughty.

Decadent TrufflesDecadent Truffles
 








Truffles!  That's what I wanted.  Alas, I didn't have any cream and really was being lazy about going up to the store.

This is what I had on hand:

  • 6 ounces Neufchatel Cheese
  • Vanilla extract
  • Confectioner's Sugar - some
  • Bakers Chocolate
  • Cocoa Powder
Decadent TrufflesDecadent TrufflesWas there a way to make truffles using ingredients on hand or was I really going to have to go out?  See, I was being totally lazy.

The search engines were kind to me and I "met" Meryl from MA.  Meryl is the photographer, cook, and writer at Inspired Bites.  She actually makes Cream Cheese Truffles in Two Flavors, with her main ingredients being what I have on hand.

Unfortunately, well fortunately for my waist, I didn't have enough powdered sugar or cream cheese to make a full batch.  So, I altered the recipe slightly.  This still made much more than I actually needed, but hey, who's watching, right?!

Here is Meryl's recipe:

  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, at room temperature 
  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 10 oz. high quality dark chocolate

Decadent Truffles

Decadent TrufflesThis is what I used:


  • 6 oz Neufchatel Cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Confectioner's Sugar
  • 18 oz. Baker's Chocolate (9 squares)


Allow the Neufchatel Cheese to come up to room temperature and soften a bit.

Slowly melt the Baker's Chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.

In a bowl, combine the Neufchatel Cheese, Vanilla Extract, Confectioner's Sugar and then add the chocolate.

Mix until you have the desired marbling effect or the entire mixture is one color.

Chill the in the refrigerator until firm.

Using a spoon or a melon baller, scoop out and shape your truffles into about 1 inch balls.

Roll in crushed nuts, powdered chocolate, or dip in melted chocolate as Meryl did.

What is your favorite "go-to" when you're craving something sweet?  Is it ice cream, pie, cake, fruit, or a good old fashioned chocolate bar?

Okay, now tell us what you crave when you're wanting to be naughty.
