An Edible Therapy…


These past several months have lead to much reflection about what this blog actually means and how it can best fit into my life now.  I have been reflecting on why I started it and what it has led to.  I have been putting too much pressure on myself for the blog and feeling discouraged because I haven’t been able to keep up with posts. 


I have been feeling down on myself, feeling like I haven’t been accomplishing what I set out to do…


Last week I was talking to my Occupational Therapist, Deanna, and I realized that I have been accomplishing my goals… BECAUSE of the blog… I have been having such a great time working on new projects and learning new things that I haven’t had time to post about it!


I realized “I am still cooking, “I am still taking photos”,  and “I am still finding my new normal”… I just haven’t been able to get it on the blog because I have been too busy living it. 


It’s not that I have been failing; the blog has brought me to this place where I have many meaningful things to work on.  I have been spending my time working on new projects, new developments, spending time with family and friends, participating in therapy and even taking a trip to Holland! 




I have realized that this is EXACTLY what “An Edible Therapy” was meant to be.  It’s sole purpose wasn’t just about creating a food blog, it was about creating a new normal.  THIS is what is most important to ME.



 One of my therapists reminded me that I once said:


“Acceptance is not giving up, it is opening a new door.”  


This couldn’t be more applicable now as I am now accepting and realizing that it is ok for my blog to take a new shape.


Thank you for reading, and I hope you will continue to follow me on my journey to a New Normal.



Stay tuned for more posts related to my special projects, lifestyle, and lots of fun!


Peace & Love,


Jonny Aps
