She-De

I’m currently reading: There’s a state (of mind) called She-De.

There’s no exact translation to english of this word. The structure of chinese words is based on using combination of single-meaning words to form new word with a different meaning.

She 舍 means let it go.

De 得 means Gain.

She-De 舍得 means let it go. But the message beneath its literal meaning is much more. The real message (@chinese culture): Only if you let go something, you’ll gain something. Other way to say it: When you lose something, you gain something; When a door is closed, a door will be open.

It’s an open mind idea to me! Personally, I’ve experienced several times this feeling

  • I didn’t give up my comfort life in Argentina, I wouldn’t be able to LIVE with passional (although stressed out often as well).
  • If I didn’t break up with my ex-bf, I wouldn’t have met and married the most wonderful man in the world!
  • If I don’t put down my judgements, I wouldn’t make many great friends.

Q: Have you experienced She De?

Look this colorful meal that I made yesterday.

sorry goat cheese lovers. I can’t join you! 😦 I ate the whole plate but didn’t enjoy it much. The smell is just too strong. Is this an acquire taste thing? Should I give it another try?

Snacking all day long this combo: sprouted sunflower seeds + cranberries

and leftover homemade pizza (the best pizza crust ever! ;)) with steamed Tj’s green beans with ketchup. YUM~~

I think I need to get the other crust from the freezer tonight… I’m already craving for more pizza! 😆

Q: What’s your favorite movie genre?

Disappointing friend and new products!

My 45 min post just magically disappeared. 👿 so I’ll do this re-write short.

Disappointing friend = I met with my “ex” best friend yesterday and he almost ignored me. He didn’t call me after my car accident (he knew it) and he showed indifference when he saw me. 😥

New products that arrived last couple of days. 😆

Nutiva‘s products. I already used palm sugar on the apple pie and plan to use coconut oil for baking and hair mask. Any idea for Acai powder?

Q1: Have you had similar experience with close friends?

Q2: Do you believe on forever relationships or you think every relationship would eventually fade?
