Make These 13 Types Of Cookies For This Fall
What’s better on a cold, crisp, fall day than baking cookies? My grandmother and I used to bake all of the time in the fall. The scent of the cookies filling the air, flour all over my clothes, and by the end, we had delicious cookies and milk! Want to recreate some of those memories with your own kids or even grandkids or heck, your parents? Fall is the perfect time for mixing up some new recipes and recreating some old ones. Below are some of my favorite recipes that are not only easy, but scrumptious!

1. White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

        Whoopie pies have been all the rage, and these look so, so delicious! The oatmeal, the cream, the fact that it’s a sandwich – what could be better?

          Do you love candy corn? Do you love white chocolate? These cookies are definitely for you. They are soft-baked, too, which means they are gooey on the inside. These are sure to become a staple in your family during the fall months.

                This cookie combines two of my favorite things: buttercream frosting and shortbread. Add in a bit of pumpkin spice, and you’ve got a cookie that encompasses everything you love about fall!

                  While I did reference different candy corn cookies earlier in this post, this cookie is designed for the candy corn haters! It is shaped like candy corn, but doesn’t taste a thing like it. So cute for a Halloween party!

                  9. Cinnamon Crumb Pecan Sandie

                    Who doesn’t love a crumbly, nutty, cinnamon cookie to have with their tea or hot cocoa during the fall? Sandies are the perfect fall cookie for you to indulge in. They aren’t too, too sweet, which is refreshing!

                      Pumpkin takes a back seat when it comes to this cookie, the apple is really the star! The chunks of apple are so chewy and the small hint of pumpkin just makes it. No need to choose #teampumpkin or #teamapple with this cookie.

                      11. Salted Caramel Coconut Thumbprint Cookies

                            The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

                            The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

                            Are you waiting for life events to turn out the way you want so that you can feel more positive about your life? Do you find yourself having pre-conditions to your sense of well-being, thinking that certain things must happen for you to be happier? Do you think there is no way that your life stresses can make you anything other than “stressed out” and that other people just don’t understand?  If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you might find yourself lingering in the land of negativity for too long!

                            The following are some tips to keep positive no matter what comes your way. This post will help you stop looking for what psychologists call “positivity” in all the wrong places!  Here are the ten essential habits of positive people.

                            1. Positive people don’t confuse quitting with letting go.

                            Instead of hanging on to ideas, beliefs, and even people that are no longer healthy for them, they trust their judgement to let go of negative forces in their lives.  Especially in terms of relationships, they subscribe to The Relationship Prayer which goes:

                             I will grant myself the ability to trust the healthy people in my life … 

                            To set limits with, or let go of, the negative ones … 

                            And to have the wisdom to know the DIFFERENCE!

                             2.  Positive people don’t just have a good day – they make a good day.

                            Waiting, hoping and wishing seldom have a place in the vocabulary of positive individuals. Rather, they use strong words that are pro-active and not reactive. Passivity leads to a lack of involvement, while positive people get very involved in constructing their lives. They work to make changes to feel better in tough times rather than wish their feelings away.

                            3. For the positive person, the past stays in the past.

                            Good and bad memories alike stay where they belong – in the past where they happened. They don’t spend much time pining for the good ol’ days because they are too busy making new memories now. The negative pulls from the past are used not for self-flagellation or unproductive regret, but rather productive regret where they use lessons learned as stepping stones towards a better future.

                            4. Show me a positive person and I can show you a grateful person.

                            The most positive people are the most grateful people.  They do not focus on the potholes of their lives.  They focus on the pot of gold that awaits them every day, with new smells, sights, feelings and experiences.  They see life as a treasure chest full of wonder.

                            5. Rather than being stuck in their limitations, positive people are energized by their possibilities.

                            Optimistic people focus on what they can do, not what they can’t do.  They are not fooled to think that there is a perfect solution to every problem, and are confident that there are many solutions and possibilities.  They are not afraid to attempt new solutions to old problems, rather than spin their wheels expecting things to be different this time.  They refuse to be like Charlie Brown expecting that this time Lucy will not pull the football from him!

                            6. Positive people do not let their fears interfere with their lives!

                            Positive people have observed that those who are defined and pulled back by their fears never really truly live a full life. While proceeding with appropriate caution, they do not let fear keep them from trying new things. They realize that even failures are necessary steps for a successful life. They have confidence that they can get back up when they are knocked down by life events or their own mistakes, due to a strong belief in their personal resilience.

                            7. Positive people smile a lot!

                            When you feel positive on the inside it is like you are smiling from within, and these smiles are contagious. Furthermore, the more others are with positive people, the more they tend to smile too! They see the lightness in life, and have a sense of humor even when it is about themselves. Positive people have a high degree of self-respect, but refuse to take themselves too seriously!

                            8. People who are positive are great communicators.

                            They realize that assertive, confident communication is the only way to connect with others in everyday life.  They avoid judgmental, angry interchanges, and do not let someone else’s blow up give them a reason to react in kind. Rather, they express themselves with tact and finesse.  They also refuse to be non-assertive and let people push them around. They refuse to own problems that belong to someone else.

                            9. Positive people realize that if you live long enough, there are times for great pain and sadness.

                            One of the most common misperceptions about positive people is that to be positive, you must always be happy. This can not be further from the truth. Anyone who has any depth at all is certainly not happy all the time.  Being sad, angry, disappointed are all essential emotions in life. How else would you ever develop empathy for others if you lived a life of denial and shallow emotions? Positive people do not run from the gamut of emotions, and accept that part of the healing process is to allow themselves to experience all types of feelings, not only the happy ones. A positive person always holds the hope that there is light at the end of the darkness.  

                            10. Positive person are empowered people – they refuse to blame others and are not victims in life.

                            Positive people seek the help and support of others who are supportive and safe.They limit interactions with those who are toxic in any manner, even if it comes to legal action and physical estrangement such as in the case of abuse. They have identified their own basic human rights, and they respect themselves too much to play the part of a victim. There is no place for holding grudges with a positive mindset. Forgiveness helps positive people become better, not bitter.

                            How about you?  How many habits of positive people do you personally find in yourself?  If you lack even a few of these 10 essential habits, you might find that the expected treasure at the end of the rainbow was not all that it was cracked up to be. How could it — if you keep on bringing a negative attitude around?

                            I wish you well in keeping positive, because as we all know, there is certainly nothing positive about being negative!
