Went to a Korean Buddhist temple today. In my diversity class one of my assignments is to attend a religious service I am unfamiliar with and reflect on it. It was a very interesting experience! None of it was in English. However they served a delicious vegetarian lunch after and I spoke with some very nice ladies who knew English. One of them explained to me what all the bowing and mantras were about and a Buddhist monk gave me some books. Looking forward to learning more!

I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.
"Nobody has more insight into what your issue is with your own body than you and so if you’re with a physician that will not listen to what you’re saying about your body, that is not the physician that you need working with you. If you are in the position where you are a patient with somebody who is leading you through something, if you do not trust that guide who is leading you through the process, you should not be with that person. So we have this attitude that we’re kind of like cattle being treated by somebody who’s the all-knowing person, but what has history taught us about that? It’s taught us that at one point the people who were in charge of that journey believed in bleeding, at one point they believed in completely infiltrating people with mercury. So what we’ve learned is that the education we’re providing people with who are the experts, sometimes are not working to our benefit, so you’ve really gotta question, you’ve got to question, you cannot ask enough questions of your physician, and if it’s a good physician they’re gonna like the fact that you’re taking such an active interest in your own body. Don’t ever go to somebody that you don’t trust. I’m gonna stress that right now and if that doctor says, "listen to me, I’m the expert," walk out the door. If they can’t explain it to you, why they need you to do that, to the point where you understand and agree, that’s not the person you want to work with. End of story." —Teal Swan

#quinoapasta with homemade sauce from a family friend topped with a veggie burger with #goatcheese. Yumm
#garlic sandwich to kill a cold. Done this the last few nights and every morning i feel significantly better. Definitely the fastest cure i’ve come across and worth being smelly! Mash a whole head if youre brave enough and dont do it on an empty stomach.
