Day Two... String Bean Casserole

In thinking about what it is I want to accomplish, I can’t help but thinking about a simple mathematical truth:


A sum is worth the whole of its parts


Who will be the best people to support and laugh and cry with me along this journey? What STUFF do I need to do this...


I love string bean casserole.


I HATE string beans


But the oniony, crunchy goodness that you are directed to add to the recipe, makes the evil taste of green beans somehow bearable.


Of course, I often think the best string bean casserole would be ALL the ingredients EXCEPT the green beans.


However, that is the ironic beauty of the recipe. That would be all style no substance...

All the crap works together to make a once healthy, albeit gross veggie side into a fattening tasty treat. BUT you still get the necessary nutrition.


My ingredients for a better life:


String beans – my regrets, my fears, my anger at myself, my controlling nature, my false hope (not to be mistaken with well placed hope), my self medicating, my blaming……………….both of myself and of others


ALL OF THESE MUST BE DIGESTED AND BROKEN DOWN IN ORDER TO MOVE FORWARD


Milk – Life itself, the will to live

Hi Dana... very well thought out post :) Made me hungry too... and I can definitely do without the string beans both metaphorically and literally.

Have A Great Day!!!
