Favorite Apple Salad

My favorite Apple Chicken Salad with Cranberries from Wendy’s is devoured at least once a week . My daughter brings it to me when she gets off of work.

It’s #ThursdayThought day on Twitter, and for some reason I find myself feeling thankful that finally, I can get a really scrumptious salad that I didn’t have to prepare myself.

Thank you Wendy’s! (And thanks to my darling daughter!)

I simply call it my favorite apple salad, but actually, it’s an Apple Pecan Chicken Salad with blue cheese. I can’t eat the pecans, but luckily they come in a separate bag. I don’t like the blue cheese very much, but it’s sprinkled on top in fairly large chunks so it’s easy to remove most of it.

I know. It’s from a fast food place, and then I remove two of the ingredients.

So what’s the big deal aside from the red and green apple chunks and the chicken?

It also has cranberries!

And… the dressing is Pomegranate Vinaigrette, which is my favorite.

It tastes amazing and it’s good for you too!  salad-apple

Silent Dream Killer

Doubt kills more than failure ever will.

Have faith, be confident, stay strong, persevere.

Stop the silent dream killer.

Taken from the following quote by Prince EA. He produces some amazing thoughts and videos that are definitely worth watching, reading, and hearing. The link is to his Facebook page.

There is a thief in your mind, who is after your dreams. His name is doubt. If you see him, call the cops, for he is wanted for murder and has killed more dreams than failure ever did. You cannot go back and create a new beginning, but you can start now and make a brand new ending. (Prince EA)

 

Everything Must Die

“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” (Cynthia Occelli)

The first step in seed germination is the absorption of water, to the point of rupture.

Sounds painful, but that’s the point where new growth begins.

It reminds me of the Death card in Tarot. Everyone tends to think that it means true physical death, but it actually signifies the death of something less tangible – although equally important – such as a belief, a relationship, an attitude, a phase, a stage of life, a job, even something seemingly as innocuous as an interest.

In the cyclical nature of everything that is, everything must die in order to make room for the new.

When we hold on to beliefs, attitudes, and relationships that no longer serve us or anyone else, then we are putting obstacles in our own path.

We stop growing as spiritual beings.
