Is there an ounce of hatred or irritation that you have for another race? What if I told you that is the country where your ancestors were from. It is so easy to finger-point distinct qualities that are not yours, but when you take a look at yourself in the mirror, you fail to address the fact that someone may feel the same way about you, or you may be just like them. There is no need to generalize an entire race. I am completely different from the Indian next to me, who has nothing in common with the Indian next to them. This video will change your world and the way you judge people based on their ethnicity. Open your heart and love one another.
This actually started as a chicken salad. I would make this before heading off to the gym so I would have something quick to grab as I headed to work. I used it to make a lettuce wrap or ate it with celery sticks.
My daughter loves this. It’s one of her favorites. So I started making a pasta salad so there would be enough for everyone. It’s easy and it’s another meal I can make ahead and it’s ready when they’re ready.
It can easily still be used as the original chicken salad just add chicken instead of pasta and enjoy over a bed of lettuce or as I did in a lettuce wrap.
Of course you can always do both. Pasta and chicken if you like. I make it that way for the meat eaters in the house but for me it’s a vegetarian version.
I hold the same opinion as Jason over at Harsh Reality that operating a blog on WordPress is just like having a profile on Facebook or Twitter and should be used as such. The idea of interacting in order to get interaction changed my view of blogging forever. So think about these links as a free opportunity to meet a new friend and expand your blog’s reach.
For those of us on the pursuit to happiness, we have to come to the realisation that we have to move on from certain things in our past. If we let them linger, then those things can hold us back and if they can and we let them, they will. Whether that be an ex partner, an old friend, or a bad habit, something that has been around for a long enough period of time that we feel a pang of guilt at the thought of cutting ties.
The thing is, even as difficult as even the thought is, sometimes it is what needs to be done to free you from being held back from being truly happy. If you are honest with yourself, that aspect of your life, no matter what or who it is, they are making your life less than desirable. You might be so used to…
I don’t know if Dale Dedrick would describe herself as a warrior but having met her I certainly would.Dale is like those toys with the weighted round base that no matter how often you knock them over they just come right back up.But let me start at the beginning.
Dale was 12 when she started to ride. Her mother paid for 10 lessons.“I was hooked,” she says. Then her grandmother paid for 10 more lessons. That was the beginning. She worked weekends at the local stable, cleaning tack, grooming horses and ponies. And she was allowed to ride: “Anything we could catch.” So Dale and her friends would catch a horse or pony out in the paddock and leap on without a saddle or bridle. Later she moved on and bought a Thoroughbred off the track and taught him to jump and did…
Anyone who thinks that writing for a living is a quiet, gentle occupation is just SO wrong. Do you imagine a scene with the writer, coffee by his side, sitting serenely tapping away at the keyboard, pausing only to think for a few seconds before beaming with pleasure and then tapping away again? Wrong.
Writer sitting at keyboard scratching head, swearing and cursing. Types one sentence erases it. Gets up to find missing sock. Sits down again. Reads last few sentences. Child rushes in screaming there is a snake in the garden which has now gone up the drainpipe. Tell child to get gaffer tape from camera box and tape up bottom of drainpipe. Scribble note to husband to flush gutters when he gets home. Drinks coffee. Gets up to make more coffee. Child rushes in to say neighbour’s child has fallen in the pool. Ask is it drowning? No…
When we were young society tried to instill in our minds the belief that if one works hard, takes their vitamins, is a good person and does what’s right, life will turn out pretty good. And for the most part I guess this could be true. That doesn’t mean life is easy or that you will get your way or reach your goals.
There’s no guarantee you will reach your goal. There is no magic wand to be waved which instantaneously produces that for which you desire. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. You can work your tail off to achieve a certain objective only to have success ripped from your grasp.
So what does this tell us about life? I believe this reality teaches us there is more value to be found in the seeking than in the attaining. It reminds me of how much fun I have planning a vacation and then anticipating the trip. I almost enjoy that part of the vacation more than I actually enjoy the vacation itself!
And so it is with working toward goals.
I might be disappointed that I didn’t reach a goal, but if I worked hard and gave my best then I actually did achieve something…didn’t I?
I’ll be curious to read your view on this idea so be sure to continue the conversation in the comment section.
