Bittersweest Title

These decisions I’m making are making the difference for the future. Time travel to the present and make most of the moment. Taste the untouched flavors. And do me a favor, have the largest slice of humble pie.

Stay humble pie, it’s worth a try.

I been doing a lot of reflecting lately about how the posts have transformed into a kind of style I’m doing with this blog thang. I always bring up the fact that this was only an assignment and having a blog prior to taking the class was a foreign concept. What was I going to do with a blog?

Becoming more open to openness in a sense.

Utilizing your stove properly

Feeding someone you love

Make the food taste real

Ingredients: Patients and Love

Greatness versus Success

Create the Dream

You know ever since I started working I stopped cooking dinner. But that was not going to happen. I remember how cooking for family and friends was really important aspect of my role as an uncle. My niece never stops being hungry even if she only just wants something sweet. Cooking requires planning. It’s anticipation and hope.

Returning back like I never left. Tasting this moment for the sake of not tasting these fruits that have fallen from the trees of our decisions.  We plant the seeds of the trees we want to see. There is a process and the labor requires a certain kind of care. Food for thought. What kind of food will you grow?

They say reap what you sow and I say at least keep positivity in the soil. Always.


Something Sweet Pt.2 (Remix)

“I wonder if they’ll make me a root beer float if I asked them?”

Pulling up to the drive thru trying to satisfy this sweet tooth. Sitting next to something sweet.

Root beer float was not on the menu.  But it never hurts to ask.

I met Frances back when I was riding the shuttle to school and back to the Rez earlier last year (The College Years). She would be on the bus headed to work or home. And we would have brief conversations as our paths crossed. Just positive exchanges every time we got a chance to speak.

Fast forward to the story of the post, the story from my stomach. Frances and I are on a fun road trip to get ice cream at this burger joint. She is the one asking about the root beer float. Wondering if they can make something not even offered. It was a brave move on her part to even ask.

As we place our order Frances very nicely says, “could I have a vanilla shake but could you mix root beer with it, like a root beer float.” The request seemed very doable but I wasn’t too sure if the person on the other end would understand the request. The voice on the intercom seemed a little caught off guard but really she just accepted the challenge.

We get to the window and the cashier right away gets more assurance about adding the root beer to the shake. The customer is always right, right.

Frances was the champion of the day.  Not only did she attain the root beer float she wanted, she trusted this person, a total stranger to make this special treat.  This never tasted dessert was a fresh idea right off the top of her head. And with the will of the need for a root beer float she made it come true.

So impressed.

Just by how you can believe in something so much and with the correct actions anything is possible. There is the possibility of things not going your way although you will never find out by not actually trying.

Frances is always fun to be around and the times we share are uplifting. I talked about this in the previous blog about clearly framing your thought process. Making the decisions about what you want in life.  Working toward something meaningful and attaining what you desire.

Spending time with Frances and building all these wonderful memories. I understand that this relationship is something I want to continue working on.  I feel very open to sharing my ideas and barriers with her.  I guess in life individually we want to improve our positions and gain a certain kind of reward. But at the end of the day it feels so good to have her support.

The kindest soul deserves a root beer float.

We drive off into the sunset like royalty; inventing new treats and ordering delicious memories to take home.

Frances takes a drink of the mix.


Root beer floats up. Hell yeah.

Something Sweet

The best times of my life are occurring right in front off my eyes and it feels like I am in full grasp of my life in a sense, yet still being free and open to what the world will offer. The blueprints will come in handy but if I need to make additions along the way then nothing is wrong with changing things up.

I am learning to balance these important components of my life. And I think the real joy of being in control is utilizing your abilities to let those around you fuel the adventure.

I am getting older but still feel like a younger me in my prime. Reflecting that inner glimmer passing glory sharing a story of a shine.

So I have been doing this blog thang for over a year now. The mind frame that has built into who and what I am now is threaded into these posts. I have been able really understand myself better because of the blog as well.  The blog was and still is a food blog, and for this post I wanted to share a recipe-philosophy for life. Maybe something you’d like to try at home.

It’s like those stores that sell things in bulk and give out free samples of upcoming products along the aisle. Just imagine I am handing out samples of this new way of thinking. Try it out and if you like it then you can buy it in bulk.

As beings we have the ability to grow and change.  I can attain information tomorrow and my whole perspective could morph into something grand. And I see the influence of time but regardless of this new information I still need to maintain this original essence of thought. A mental recipe to start the day, you have decisions right from the beginning. So I thought of a three option scenario to help structure the day.

Recipe for Life (Choose Wisely) 

  1. Start Something New
  2. Destroy Something So You Can Rebuild It 
  3. Continue Working On Something Ongoing

In this dream, nothings as it seems. I map out schemes, trying to turn this life into my dream.

I spoke about this topic in a pervious post, where in life there are decisions you make about the individuals you get involved with romantically, spiritually, and friend wise too. Those decisions are your own and to be comfortable about where your life is at; it just feels good to connect and share excitement for a bond.

These relationships are like winter scarfs for the soul keeping you warm in the cold climate. In this dream state I am trying to create, I make wise decisions so I can enjoy the shake.

We wanted something sweet….

Eye Candy Ready To Be Tasted

stories from my stomach

I am trying to keep the blog interesting and hopefully bring something new to the table every time. I keep that mentality of always progressing but I have to admit that I do see the importance of recycling. Taking parts from other pieces maybe I had written and never did anything with it, putting them to use. Those artifacts of thought and ideas are still usable. At the time I didn’t have use for it but that doesn’t mean that the thought was bad or wrong. I just think a thought or vision can come too early for it to seem possible at that particular moment. These posts will get better with time.

 My Grandma and I went to a promotion ceremony last week for one of my younger cousins named Pernell who was passing the eighth grade. We were early attending the event; my Grandma does not like to…
