Few reasons for regrets

I know there can be many things that we regret, but I think this one is the one of those things we should regret the most.

Now you know me, I am not talking about those chances that could be dangerous.  
I'm talking about those chances that could lead you to a better life. Those chances that allow you to grow in a way that you may never have thought you could.

These are the chances that we should grab with both hands and give it all we have.

If we don't ... these are the ones we will look back on with regret.
Friends don't let friends regret .... 
take that chance!

Memphis Style Dry Rub

It is BBQ season and I'm always looking forward to trying new recipes.  Especially ones that I get to make everything from scratch instead of buying pre-made.

Now there is nothing wrong with pre-made, I have made all kinds of meals with pre-made/pre-packaged items as part of the ingredients. Heck I think I was Sandra Lee before Sandra Lee was Sandra Lee. Now I really hope you know who Sandra Lee is or I will be really disappointed.

I am thinking this would be fabulous on some ribs (which I may be making soon for sure) out on the grill, but also on chicken.  I am betting there really isn't much you couldn't use this on.  Except for maybe fish since I think this would be a little too much for a delicate fish.

Another definition of Happiness

Sometimes even the simplest of things need an even simpler explanation.

I think I will be trying to put this simple explanation into practice more often.

I know there are many times that I am very grateful for everything that I have.  I know that many of the things I have are because of the grace of God, not because of anything that I have done or earned.

I would love to say that I have been showing my gratefulness every day, but I do not wish to lie to you.  I know that there have been many days that I have not.  There have been many days that I have thought that is wish things were different, that I had something more.

I can't promise that I won't have days like these again.  But I am promising you here and now that I will try harder to just be grateful for all the things I have - good and bad.  Grateful for just one more day with these things.  Some don't have that privilege.

I'm in a special competition ... are you?

I saw this one and thought that this is so much better than just saying "stop competing with everyone else".

First I don't think that is completely possible. Society seems to think that we need to be in competition.  And in some things it is good to be in a competition with someone. Sometimes that someone is YOU.

What we need to do though, is recognize that just because we are in a competition it doesn't mean it needs to be to your detriment. Sometimes it is for the good of everyone that we compete.

Some days it mean that you need to stop competing with everyone else and realize that YOU are better than yesterday and THAT is all you need, all that really matters.  That is all you can ask for and still be happy.

Some times it means that you don't need to be a superstar in everyone's eyes, you just need to be better than yesterday and then you are a star.

Treat me good and .........

This one is just simple.
It really is just this easy.

Maybe if everyone did this .. then we would all be living in a much better world.

Might just make it a better place for everyone, so that they want to make our Earth a cleaner, nicer place to be.  Lets face it - its the only one we have to live on at the moment!

Thank you Powerofpositivity.com for this reminder.

  • 1½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp. Cilantro or Lime Vinaigrette preferred dressing
  • ¼ cup red pepper, chopped using Chop ’N Prep Chef
  • ¼ cup green pepper, chopped using Chop ’N Prep Chef
  • ½ cup black beans canned, drained
  • 2 cups spinach

Combine quinoa, vegetable broth and orange juice in Microwave Rice Maker. 
Replace cover and microwave on high power 15–18 minutes. 
Fluff with a fork and chill in refrigerator.

Layer (bottom to top): 
  • dressing
  • peppers
  • black beans 
  • ½ cup chilled quinoa 
  • spinach
Securely seal container. 
Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, shake Quick Shake® Container until all ingredients are combined.
