Savoring the flavor of life may seem strange, especially when life seems all up hill with twists and turns. Yet, there is a silver lining to every cloud of doubt; the glass is half-full and everything is an opportunity to help you transform into your personal best. Your soul's sole purpose for being in body is for emotional and spiritual growth. Without the up hill climb with twists and turns, you would be complacent with your journey and achieve little. It is the hills, twists and turns that compel you to learn, grow and transform.
To learn to savor the flavor of life you need to accept both the challenging and fun/easy aspects. Consider doing this experiment. Think of something in your life that you are truly happy about. For example: Where you live, work, your family, friends, activities, hobbies or an animal. Think of that one thing right now. Then, think of something that is challenging in your life. The one challenging thing in your life could be work, a family member or friend, activities or a hobby. Notice that what you are truly happy about and what is challenging can be and often is sometimes from the same source.
Albert Einstein said, "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. The choice you make will define the life you live. Do you want to live your life as if nothing is a miracle, or do you want to live your life as if everything is a miracle? The choice is yours.
This second is the first second of the rest of your life. Make a decision. Do you want to live with everything is a miracle or nothing is a miracle? If you choose everything is a miracle, then put it all inside the miracle category, that which you love and that which is challenging. By doing this you will learn that you can savor the flavor of life no matter if it arrives as a joy or a challenge.
I wish you well on your journey of savoring the flavor of life's joys and challenges.
