It only takes one

Hey y'all!

Howzit goin' bitchez?? I've been busy as usual, but doing pretty well overall! My food choices are getting pretty much back on track but I need to overhaul my exercise routine. More on that later. I've had lots of yummy green monsters for breakfast this week--this one doesn't look all that great though does it?? :P It's such a gross color thanks to a bunch of blueberries!

For lunch--or dinner? no it was lunch--I made some eggs with zucchini and some salsa on top. I wasn't sure how it would taste, but it was great and I'll do this again! :)

Last night I went and got a new tattoo, it took way longer than expected, so I only had Diet Coke for dinner. :) Here's my new ink

It's a snake wrapped around a red lotus. The snake symbolizes inner strength and the lotus
"...symbolizes the original nature of the heart (hrdaya). It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion, activity and all the qualities of the heart. It is the lotus of Avalokitesvara."

Lotus flowers also symbolize rebirth and beauty, since they start out as a seed in the bottom of a nasty mucky pond then rise up through all that ugly pond water to become a beautiful flower! I really love it and think Jason did an awesome job! He did the lotus in an old-school style, he's never done that before or even seen it anywhere, so I've got a unique piece of art on my back!! :)
Today I had a green monster for breakfast, I was running late so I didn't take a picture. For lunch, I met up with my friends at Bdubs, one of which is leaving very soon for Afghanistan :( I got six traditional spicy garlic wings--my favorite!! After work I came home to tidy up the apartment before I made dinner of salmon with zucchini & onions.
Cute huh? :) I've got all my candles lit and the Yankees game on tv. It only takes one, one game, one win to decide this year's World Series!!
This little soundbite got me thinking in the past 10 minutes about how that can have meaning & extend into other parts of life. IT ONLY TAKES ONE. One kind word, one good deed, one healthy decision can send your moment, hour, day, week, month, year, or life into one after another of positive things. Think about it!!! If you just look at things one at a time, they really are not as intimidating as previously thought. So tomorrow let's all just take things one at a time and see if we can't have a more positive day!
Okay then, the Yanks are at bat so I'm going to get off the computer and pay attention to the game!! Hope y'all have a good night! :)
