There are moments in one’s life when finding the way to move forward stymies even the most agile of travelers. There are times when life’s peculiarities seem to perplex even the most seasoned of intellectuals. There are instances where the walls of despair erect themselves so high that climbing over them wearies even the most strongest willed of us all. Where every day preaches only yesterday’s dereliction and where tomorrows lay chained to the hell of today’s doom.
Tangible afflictions burden the mind with unstoppable pangs of gloom, while intangible woes haunt the heart with perpetual grief. Whether these circumstances plague us separately or in tandem, one thing is for certain and that is, that either carries with it the infinite ability to cause every ounce of our very existence to blench from launching to the grounds we are meant to travel. A burdened heart may fear loving again thereby missing out on the plentiful bounty of happiness. A bout with poverty may preclude one from enjoyment or worse, from knowing of worthiness or deservedness. Whichever the designate, the common element is prevalent, and that is, that whatever the circumstance you are facing, it is only that, a circumstance.
One main artery of dealing with circumstances is looking at life as a series of very flavorful situations. Some good flavors, some not so good. However, in order to achieve, to sustain and to thrive, you must taste all of the flavors to know the difference. It is unfortunate that some of the disgusting flavors seem to linger far longer than they are welcomed. However, when you taste of a good one that lingers, it far exceeds the logic of the less desired taste and ultimately, you forget that the disgusting flavors ever even touched of your lip.
So, even though you may be experiencing some moments that taste far less than desirable, remember the pleasurable flavors and strive to taste of them again.
