The 5 Flavors of Life

Life can be Plain, Salty, Sweet, Spicy or Bitter……..


When it is bitter, liven it up with some spice,

If it is salty, salt makes wounds even worse, take a breather, be basic for a while, calm yourself down, meditate, cancel your weekend plans and spend some “me” time to recenter yourself.

When it is sweet, enjoy it, life is filled with peaks and troughs, prosperity and poverty. Savor the moments of bliss, sweetness, and success. Never forget that happiness may come and go, but true joy can never be replaced or taken away (it’s all up to you).

When it is plain, accept it, learn to love it and cherish it. It’s not every day you get to do nothing. Take a nap, meditate for an hour, pray, pat yourself on the back (literally). Plain paper has never gone out of style, it has always been the perfect representation of a blank slate, a fresh canvas to begin new ideas, creations, and visions.

A little extra seasoning never hurt anyone but too much “spicy” can cause things to explode. Be careful with risk-taking,  while it is okay and sometimes necessary to take risks, always be cognizant.

I leave you with this quote:

“If life were predictable, it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

As you begin and end your days, always strive to be grateful, be mindful, be kind and have flavor.
