Saying "Not My Problem" and Other Things to Try Out in Spring

Are you a people pleaser? I shared a video from the show "Black-ish" on a recent post, and I just have to show another one. After dealing with a patronizing doctor for far too long, the leading matriarch of the show, Dr. Bow Johnson, finally snaps at him. Such an amazing moment that I'm sure many of us have only dreamed about...

A family friend recently gave me this golden advice recently. She said, instead of trying to please the people who show miserable behavior, why don't you just say to yourself "It's not my problem" and move on. Of course, their actions still may affect you deeply, but at least you've liberated yourself from the huge responsibility of walking on eggshells all. the time. 

How does that sound for a spring resolution? What are some things you're "trying on" for Spring? In case you're looking for a couple more ideas, here are a few...

Want to eat more vegetables? I tried out an edited version of this dip and loved it. It's a refreshing kosher-for-Passover treat for whenever you need a break from matzah brei. 

Veggie dip
About two cups plain greek yogurt
1 tbsp olive oil (plus more for drizzling later)
1 tsp garlic powder (or 1 small clove)
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp parsley, chopped (or 2 frozen cubes)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp onion powder

Mix all of the ingredients together very well. Use a food processor if you want to add the anchovies. 

Or maybe some orange tulips to brighten up your home... I love the blue vase (multi-purpose vessel?) I picked up on sale at the new Home Goods in our area.
