Morning! I made a huge pot of oatmeal for our guests and set up a fun toppings bar. :) It’s so fun to cook for other people!
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup rice milk
- 1 banana
- Toppings: cinnamon, coconut, pecans, and brown sugar
Konner (the 4 year old) had a bite of it and declared it, “The best oatmeal EVER!”
After lunch, I’m heading to the west coast to do an Operation Beautiful presentation to 125 teenagers. They’re at an event called the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership, which strives to create a global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.
I’ve never really talked to this age group before (15 and 16 year olds) so I’m a little nervous.
I guess the key is just to remember what it was like to be that old, right? I remember being happy in many ways (I liked my family and friends and learning at school), but also remember that high school was really difficult emotionally due to teasing and bullying and cliques. I also felt really awkward in my body, but what teenager doesn’t?
If you could go back in time and tell you 15 year old self anything, what would you say?
