Life has a way of balancing out. I saw this as a comment on a Facebook post about Charlie Sheen’s recent announcement and it made me think. It actually is true comment in a way, life does have a way of balancing out. We never know when but it does balance out by the choices we make. It goes back to that old yin and yang and karma sayings.
What made me think about this a guy, I been friends with for a while and had a crush on him, and thought we may end up together, well, he got married recently. I was upset about it, but then out of the blue an ex boyfriend that I dated briefly, it ended because he is a surgical resident and has no life other than surgery, texted me, to say hello and he was thinking about me. That made me think of some of my choices, and how right now it is making a balance. It helped me open my eyes a little as far as guys.
We do not realize how life evolves around us, we tend to have our blinders on. Life does evolve around you, you have to be open to change, you have to take risks, good or bad, at one point life will balance out. Fear is what keeps us from doing things, most the time we tried something and had a bad result, so we don’t try again. That fear the one time, keeps us in one place eventually we get the balance, but at what price?
Yeah, I am being a little profound. Just bare with me I am in the midst of an ah huh moment in life. You watch as I was in a funk, I came out of it and now I am in the ah huh moment now. It is how I am and how I evolve.
I was going through a box of stuff to help me de-clutter, when I found this little index of recipes, I was given them for a bridal shower present years ago. In my little index of recipes, I had this recipe for this turkey bake. It was a great start, but needed tweaking. For the Bisquick layer,m thought what if you seasoned it with poultry seasoning, so it had more a stuffing taste. What if you used whole cranberry sauce instead of dried? These were all risks I wanted to do, and the risk was worth the reward, this was an amazing.
