Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

What Goes Around, Comes Around

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on March 31, 2011 ][ In Uncategorized ]

A departure from my usual health topics today because sometimes things need to be discussed.  While on my power walk with Molly this morning, a neighbor stopped me to ask if I knew anyone who might want a dog.  Apparently, somebody had dropped a pair of Rottweiler’s and one mixed breed puppy at his house.  The Rottweiler puppies were very shy but looked healthy and surprisingly well bred.  The other pup was no where to be seen at the moment.

I told my neighbor I would do something about the dogs so I marched home.  A couple of quick phone calls and the dogs were picked up within the hour by Animal Control.  They may already have a new home as someone who works in my husband’s office was looking to adopt at least one dog.

I firmly believe that what you do in this life matters.  When you do something bad, it will come back to haunt you.  You can’t foist off your problems onto someone else.  A lifetime of bad decisions and actions will take a toll on your mental health sooner or later.  By stepping up and taking responsibility for your own life decisions, you will feel more positive about yourself than by taking the easy way out.  Help is out there if you just ask.

So the topic of a trio of abandoned dogs applies to all areas of life.  They represent responsibility, stress, and even love and attachment.  How you approach these areas of your life will ultimately affect your mental and physical health.  So if you have a problem that you have ignored for far too long, spend some time this weekend in soul searching and decide on a solution.  Finally dealing with the problem will give you peace, a sense of accomplishment and make you stronger.
