|These are dangerous!!|
I attempted to make fresh spring/summer rolls last night, and it was an epic FAIL. The rice paper wraps I got were a smaller size than I've used in the past. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal, but it really was. I just could not get the right amount of filling, and I could not get them rolled tight enough. I tried five times, and I just had to stop. I had been looking forward to these rolls all day! I ate two of the rolls I made, messy style, and just opened the others up. I was still hungry, and I had tofu, rice noodles and vegetables all ready to go. I made the obvious choice, noodle bowl!!
I had a very draining day yesterday. I find it challenging to deal with people who are not only unhappy, but aggressively make the choice to be unhappy. I was there for a long time, and it's really miserable, and you tend to spread that misery like cooties. I was miserable for so long while living in Erie, and for so long before that due to personal issues, life, whatever made me make unhealthy choices. I don't want to be miserable anymore. I want to enjoy life, and really appreciate everything. I know I'll have bad days of course, and things/people will annoy, but I guess I'm saying my intention is to have many more happy days than unhappy days, and to work on letting some small things just roll off my shoulders. I find it difficult to spend time with someone who hates everyone, never wants to be around people, and finds no Joy in anything. I got into a disagreement yesterday when I tried to point out that this persons misery affected me, and was starting to make me feel miserable. This person was offended, and felt that I attacked him. This is the non-vegan I've mentioned. He also still smokes cigarettes, and eats a very SAD diet. As in he probably goes weeks with no fruit or vegetable in his life. I'm saying all of this to say that we are very different in our choices. If he were happy while living this way, I probably wouldn't be typing this. I really want to help him, I want him to know that if you start treating yourself better, you just naturally feel better, and want to be better and do better. Sorry for this rant, but not only am I kind if a newb when it comes to making healthy choices myself, but I'm also a newb when it comes to demanding respect in relationships. It's really great, but also different and kind of scary. Think of how boring life would be if we didn't always have to learn stuff!Ha. How do you handle people who choose to be unhappy, or do you do your best to avoid them?
