I have enemies as do everyone some that you know well why you are enemies and some you suddenly wake up to find have become your enemy. The second kind are the ones i hate the most because the reason they decided you are their enemy is purely feed by their jealously and low self esteem. In the end you should not be sad about it but you should basks in the realization that you must be doing something right for them to be jealous.
I guess this quote is really important because the second you give up on life, you are killing yourself slowly. I gave up on many things in my life, i felt depressed when i found that my life wasn't going the way i want. I found that giving up is not the solution since it tells your enemies that they won and the minute you give them that satisfaction, you give them power over you. So I found that never giving up is the solution !!
As i posted before smile !! Kill your enemies with your smile, reassure you friends and family that you are okay, and mostly smile because its the only thing that stops you from crying.
MAY YOU ALWAYS BE ARMED BY THE MIGHTEST OF WEAPONS, THE FAITH IN GOD.
I had a very busy week !! From one social event to the next, and there were some I had to miss! There were 2 birthdays, 2 exhibits, and the rest dinners.
As I mentioned in my I AM BACK post, I am blogging to try to organize my life and get it back on track. So I thought I would use the moleskin pocket book to compose a list of all the things I should do and oh how long the list was. You see I was reading a book about a OCD person and how she wouldn't leave the house with out first compiling a list of all the things she should do! So i decided to try to become more organized.
My sister found out about my blog. Well I guess now she will know about all the things I would like to put out to the world !! I don't really care about statistics really, for example how many people read my blog or how many people like my photos on instagram. I only really care of spilling out all the things that are in my mind and what better way then using a medium such as blogger and instagram.
Enough about that and lets get to the new delicious dish I was introduced to in a dinner I went to. Its a dish made out of quinoa. Quinoa as I posted in my instagram is a whole grain that is protein. It is very healthy since it is gluten free and cholesterol free. Well the quinoa I was introduced too was mixed with some vegetables but you can cook it by itself only add a bit of olive oil, sea salt and lemon juice. The other great thing about it is that it takes only 10 to 15 mins to cook.
"Quinoa Salad with Oven-Roasted Corn and Tomatoes
1 cup uncooked quinoa 1 ½ cups fresh corn kernels (about 3 ears) 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved ½ cup crumbled queso fresco cheese ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
1. Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Cool to room temperature.
2. Preheat oven to 375°.
3. Combine corn and 1 tablespoon oil in a medium bowl; toss to coat. Spread corn in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Roast corn at 375° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly.
4. Combine juice, remaining 1 tablespoon oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add corn, quinoa, and tomatoes to bowl; toss to coat. Add cheese and basil; toss gently.
The next thing I learned this week is that shopping for 38 minutes burns 100 calories !! I know great no need to go to the gym why not go shopping.
I watched Silver Linings Playbook! I must say I loved it. I would recommend it to everyone. One of the things that I liked was when the main character Pat said " The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That's guaranteed. I can't begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside myself and everyone else. But guess what? Sunday's my favorite day again. I think of what everyone did for me, and I feel like a very lucky guy." It reminded me of always being thankful for what I have even if bad things happen. It reminded me to count my blessings which a lot of us forget to do.
I love this picture ! Lately I have made it my job to throw my negativity in the past, and be positive about the present and the future ! Lately I found out that people can be vindictive to the point that is sickening just because they are jealous ! You may not have done anything to them but they are jealous so they make it their life mission to ruin your life! Any how I believe I am winning the battle that I forced to fight, hence I put my faith in god and have been smiling because I know its killing them seeing me happy !
Smile because it kills your enemy to see you smiling
Smile cause you never know who may fall in love with your smile
Smile to the world so the world smiles back at you
