Food for Thought: Pointing a Finger

Why is it that whenever something doesn't go our way, our immediate response is to find someone or something to blame.  It is such a common human response it disgusts me!  When something doesn't go the way we planned, we shouldn't be looking for something or someone to blame, we should turn the finger around and point it at ourselves.  How can we better ourselves in life if we are constantly relying on another source to place blame.  If we can point the finger in the right direction (towards ourselves) we can then evaluate why we're in the predicament we're in and live and learn from that.  Why not take the time to evaluate yourself and better yourself from this? 

If we take the time to evaluate ourselves and use those experiences to learn and become a better person, it can make any accomplishments that much more rewarding.  In fact, it may even be the cause of more positive occurrences in life!

LA Sunshine & Style

After years of observing the Hollywood stars in their over sized sunglasses, I decided it was time to try a pair of my own.  I always thought the shape and size of the accessory was a bold fashion statement; after purchasing and sporting my own pair of trendy, over sized glasses, I came to the conclusion that it isn't a fashion statement, it pure genius!  The glasses make your face look slimmer!  With a round face like mine, I can't believe I didn't think of this before they did!

Spring has Sprung

As it is a gorgeous Minnesota day, I thought it most appropriate to share this delicious cocktail! 
This Fizzy Lizzy can be found on along with several other delicious spring/summer time cocktails.  I think everyone needs to take the time each week to reflect over the week's events and take time to plan for the days ahead.  Why not do so over a delicious cocktail?  Cocktails can be a way to relax from a hectic week or celebrate past accomplishments and those to come.  Treat yourself today and indulge in a delicious cocktail.  Cheers!

The Beginning

After months of knowing I'd like to have a blog and pondering what to post on a blog and when to start it, I've finally done it!  My first official post.  I've always thought that a blog should have one carrying theme.  The longer I thought about that, I decided it was just a random opinion floating in my head.  Some may think a blog deserves a carrying theme, but others may think it more fun to show your eclectic style.  In this instance, I must categorize myself as an "other". 

Ultimately this blog will be food for thought.  I named it O's Love Culture because it will be all things I love and define my own personal culture.  The things that make me who I am.  That's about it for today, but I promise there will be more to come...
