A new shift, a new beginning

A new shift, a new beginning

Today I started working 2nd shift instead of the overnight shift. I enjoyed the overnight shift, but I think I am going to like this shift a lot more. I am a Chemical Dependency Technician at a drug and alcohol treatment facility; males 18+.

With working this shift I get to interact with the guys more. It’s nice to hear them chatting and laughing together. They are great guys and I have such respect for the courage they have to tackle the demon, aka addiction, that haunts their daily lives.

As I’ve mentioned in a couple previous posts, I’m also working towards becoming more of a minimalist.

So I figure with all these changes, I will also start being more deliberate with my eating habits. Tonight’s dinner was Taylor Farms Organic Power Greens Wellness Blend salad with a serving of shredded Colby Jack cheese and enough Western dressing to add a little kick of flavor.

What is in the Wellness Blend salad, you ask?

Well, let me tell you:

  • Spinach
  • Mizuna (I have no idea what this is. I’ve never heard of it)
  • Chard
  • and Kale

I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it in just plain salad form, as I’ve only ever used it in smoothies or mixed with either scrambled eggs or in an omelet. To my surprise it tasted like any other salad with cheese and western dressing would. And I brought Cuties with me for a snack. Go me!

One of these days the changes I desire to make will stick. Maybe it’s this time and maybe it’s not. But if I don’t keep trying, change will never come.

There’s This Place…

There’s This Place…

There’s this place I go,

where the waters are calm.

There’s this place I go,

where everything is still.

There’s this place I go,

where silence speaks . 

There’s this place I go,

where time stops.

There’s this place I go,

where things of beauty are made.

There’s this place I go,

where I cannot be reached.

There’s this place I go,

where pain is not allowed.

There’s this place I go,

where I find peace.

There’s this place I go,

where I find my center.

There’s this place I go,

when I close me eyes. 

With Loving-Kindness ♥
