The ballerina Misty Copeland has had a meteoric rise under unique circumstances. Rivka Galchenwrites:
"Copeland is considered an unlikely ballerina: she is curvy and she is black, neither of which is a common attribute in the field. But it is her very late beginning and rapid attainment of virtuosity that are arguably without precedent for a female ballerina."
Cheese Toasts: with Pesto, Arugula, Avocado and Mozzarella
2 slices toast bread (you can use any other bread)
2 tbsp pesto
2 slices mozzarella cheese
handful fresh rucola
¼ avocado, sliced
2 tbsp goat cheese, crumbled
Spread 1 tbsp of pesto on each slice of the bread. On one slice place cheese, avocado, goat cheese, rucola, cover with a second slice of cheese and top it with second slice of bread. Press together gently.
To make it delicious you should toast it. To do so heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium low heat and fry the sandwich until bread is golden brown. Press down on the sandwich lightly, then flip the sandwich over and cook until second side is golden brown.
Anxiety, the next gumption trap, is sort of the opposite of ego. You’re so sure you’ll do everything wrong you’re afraid to do anything at all. Often this, rather than “laziness” is the real reason you find it hard to get started.Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig (via ceedling)
