I absolutely love this, so I had to share it with you all.
First, and foremost, I’ d like to thank you all for liking and following my blog. To my new followers, I hope my blog inspires and motivates you to pursue your dreams.
This is very true. Why do we as humans cling to that which is harmful? I believe some of us feel we don’t deserve better. I know from my personal experiences I have done this many times. Whether it is the job I hate, a broken relationship or bad eating habits. I remember a few years ago I was working in a pharmacy as a legal drug pusher. I kept thinking to myself, “Wow, these drugs are suppose to help people, but instead they create more problems”. At that time I was actually preparing to become a pharmacist, but my ethics, morality and overall feelings were I really wouldn’ t be helping people. The more I learned about the various drugs, I was convinced more than half of them should be pulled from the market. So I had a serious dilemma. I needed the job and also I had invested so much money and time going to school. So after months passed by and I started hating myself for knowingly causing harm to people. So after about 6 months I had enough. I turned in my resignation and spoke to the head pharmacist about everything. She told me that after sometime you grow numb to thoughts like that and it’s not our fault the doctors don’t know nor understand the harm of certain medications. Also they get paid by the pharmaceutical companies to write prescriptions, so it’s a source of income for them. She tried to talk me out of resigning, and after an hour I knew for certain I didn’t want to become numb to killing people. So I resigned and never looked back. Sure I miss the money, but I am happy with my decision. I was making myself sick over it all and soon as I walked out of the pharmacy I felt a hundred times better.
So to me this is what the above quote is about. If you are not happy in your life then make changes. Figure out what is best for you. What do you aspire to do,to live, to be? If you are not doing what you truly desire then find a way to do it. Create a plan and stick with it. You can do it. You can totally transform your life. I’m a walking example of that. One day I will share more of my life story, and perhaps it will inspire someone. Trust me, my transformation is far from over, but I am confident that I will live my dreams.
This just looks so amazing I had to reblog. I will be re-creating this recipe tomorrow:)
Confession: I eat a lot of fast food. That’s right. Probably at least 4-5 times a week. Yep, Yep. And for the record, let’s define fast – speedy, quick, almost-instantaneous like the speed of lightning. Or fireflies. Or hummingbirds!
Confession #2: I make it myself. Here’s how:
Burrito fillings – garlic, onions, beans, bell peppers, broccoli, potatoes, rice or corn, chilies, tomatoes, avocados, all-the-salsa-your-heart-could-ever-desire, hot sauce.
Spices – ground cumin, chili powder, chili-lime powder, salt, pepper, fairy dust.
Foil – yummy!
1. Saute up all the ingredients, in a speedy fashion, of course. Heat up the tortillas so they’re malleable (word of the day).
2. Place foil on a plate, a tortilla on the foil, some ingredients on the tortilla, and burrito it all up.
3. Repeat until you either run out of burrito filling, tortillas, or have an army of burritos.
5. Defrost &…
