the taste of life?
When we stop running away from everything we don't like, whether it is because the taste is unfamiliar, bitter, strong, scary, or maybe overwhelming, we will discover the true taste of life.
The Taste of Becoming Me
Have you ever thought about what Life actually tastes like? How its Taste changes according to what we feel, where we are and what we experience?
The Taste of Life is a complex, continuously evolving flavor that we can either totally fall in love with or deeply dislike. It is a taste of love, but also of fear, insecurity, loss, change, joy, gratitude, … a taste of new possibilities. Life can taste soft and sweet, but sometimes it is strong and overwhelming. Its taste can frighten or exhilarate you.
And it is in this complexity that we find its true, powerful flavor. Tasting life to the fullest is daring to taste every flavor that you are being offered and appreciating it for what it holds. Every flavor has its secrets and its surprises, some bitter, some sweet; but always a part of that complex, full taste of life.
On my journey I was presented with flavors that at first bite I most certainly disliked. I did not like the taste of anxiety and darkness. I did not like the taste of weakness, or the taste of sadness. I longed for the tantalizing taste of joy and happiness, of light and playfulness. It was when I started to accept the flavors I disliked, that I discovered how flat the other flavors had been without them. In embracing the darkness, the light became so much brighter and colorful. In accepting anxiety, peace became so more intense and deep. In allowing sadness, joy became so much more sparkling, and happiness so much more profound. My taste of life became a taste of unity and in that unity I found abundance beyond my expectations.
The taste of life is not just to be found in big moments, adventures, new experiences; it is to be found in every single moment, in this moment. The joy, the fear, the love… may be more noticeable in a big moment, but the secret lies in discovering the delicate flavors of the everyday moments. Every moment of every day holds an intricate, special flavor and it is when we let these flavors roll over our tongues, our hearts and our souls, that we are tasting life to the fullest. That is when the taste of life becomes a taste of passion, of freedom and of limitless possibilities.
My taste of life has evolved from fast food to fine dining, exquisite and utterly satisfying. The taste of life is a complex, continuously evolving flavor that sometimes we are totally in love with, and sometimes need some time to learn to appreciate it.
Explore The Taste of Life and let your heart be filled with limitless possibilities.
