Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all that life really means.
Robert Louis Stevenson
January 5 - choose sweetness
Given a choice, I think we’d all choose to live the sweet life instead of a bitter life. We all experience tears, joys, setbacks and victories, but what really makes the difference, is the flavor that we add to whatever we are experiencing. Good or bad, moment by moment, it is what we add that changes the resulting experience.
If life were predictable, it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.
We need to flavor our lives with optimism and joy and savor the flavor of every moment. It’s our choice.
Influence, just like salt shaken out, is hard to see, but its flavor is hard to miss.
Here’s to you having a very sweet and flavorful day!
How sweet it is!
