Oatmeal is back!


“The pain is inevitable, but the suffering part is optional!”

That was what I got from Dave’s podcast last night, other than the pain in my butt. We were holding an awkward post (standing left(right) leg bend, folding forward, the other leg flying and the right(left) hand touching the left (right) feet), it was very challenging! So he said: “You can’t do much about the pain, it’s a fact, but you can decide your reactions to the pain. For example, you can breath!” Isn’t it inspiring? How many times we face an unpleasant/painful situation and we feel stuck there, and feel that we can’t do nothing but suffering? well, only if you choose to! What about learning from the situation? What about challenge yourself to be positive in the hostile situation? What if we take it as a life lesson? What if ….? There are so many ways to deal with it other than suffering. :)

  1. haha seems like Dave does talk a lot!!!!

    We had a very similar dish yesterday :-D I had black fungus and sesame too ! thanks for the flax seed suggestion !

  2. I had oatmeal today too! I hadn’t had it for about a week I think. Delicious! When I’m eating oatmeal I’m not full as soon as I’m done but 10 minutes later, I’m really full. Strange, right?

  3. I love that quote and used to have it written in the back of my journal. So inspiring!

  4. Wow! how did you grind up your black sesame seeds? IT looks like the work of a coffee grinder!! My bf is buying a coffee grinder so i might just make him grind some of my white sesame seeds! hahahah I love your idea of putting it in oatmeal. :) So creative and i can imagine that it’s SO delicious too!

  5. I love the asian-inspired oatmeal breakfast!! Never thought to put longan in oatmeal, but I’m liking the idea. :)
