For many of us, life is
pretty easy compared to what hard really means for some people.
And honoring that is important. Because by acknowledging our good
fortune, we can stop making life harder than it is, tougher than it has
to be. We have to lighten up and let life be a little easier, so we can
use our own energy on those who really have it hard—like damn fucking
hard. It will allow us to give, to support, to show up.
So what would it look like,
like really look like, to let life flow? A river doesn't drive itself
wild in order to move through a great frontier. It doesn't stab itself in
the eyeballs in order to carve through cliff and rock. No, it just flows.
Energetically. It goes. We can flow with life more, too. We can let it be
easy, too. But we've got to quit a few of these things in order to summon
Decide. You can handle
whatever your decide. There's no such thing as getting it wrong. But
there is such a thing as obsessing over it. Just trust yourself. That
you're doing the best you can with the information you have. That you can
handle all that comes your way. And honor that not deciding (ever) is a
Trust. Trust your gut.
Trust your decision. Trust your capabilities. Trust your love. Trust the
universe. Trust what's happening. Trust it's all occurring for
you. Trust it doesn't have to be hard. Trust that the more you trust, the
easier it'll get.
Stop ruminating. Your
overthinking is overkill. You don't need to analyze the situation one
more time. You don't need to rehash it again. You don't need to toss it
and turn it around in your head.
Accept. Quit fighting
what's happening. Quit struggling against it all. The quicker you accept
the easier it'll get. Which doesn't mean you don't believe and work and
fight for better in the future. But if it's already happened, you've got
to accept and act according.
Now I cooked this in the slow cooker of my InstaPot for 4 hours and it was not long enough. So I decided to cook it on the stew/soup for 30 minutes IP and let the NPR. And it was perfect. This is amazing!

While the sauce is simmering, prepare and heat your grill, depending
on type – if using charcoal, make sure you have a bed of hot coals,
covered in ash, spread evenly beneath the grate. Raise the grate to
between 4 and 6 inches above the coals/heat.
Rinse the chicken wings and dry then with a paper towel. Pla…
