Salt and Pepper
When they say salt and pepper are two essential ingredients, to make any dish taste and you know feel good on your tastes buds. I think about the salt and pepper in my life.
You see, salt is that thing you have to add to give food taste and pepper you add to give it a little bit of spice, make it hot!
I try to think about life in these two faces: salt and pepper- the two essential things have to put in to get that goodness, to get that good full taste at the end of the day.
There are moments in life you’re going to have that salt moment. When you have those good times, you’ve got those laughter, those memorable moments salt times in your life.
You also have the pepper moment. When its so hot, everything feels so bad, it makes you feel horrible. Everything seems like its falling apart, just like you put in pepper in your food, its hot, it burns your tongue, makes you want to throw up and just forget about everything -the pepper part of your life
Now you must be able to learn how to measure out and balance the amount of salt you get in your life and pepper so you can come out of life feeling all successful, basically schooled out of life
You metaphorically being the food have to know these two ingredients(moments) have to come in your life and you have to groom yourself to be able to take it if you want to get the complete package life has to offer
Quote of the blog
-Hot and cool air will definitely blow but, at least in synchronisation i am warm
You never understand pain until you feel it
you never really feel other peoples pain
or really sympathise with them
nor put yourself in their shoes when you don’t just understand
until now i have considered myself somewhat of a strong person
i hardly cry and would never shed a tear for something less trivial
okay, maybe that’s a lie
i cry, i cry a lot
but then you never know some sort of pain until you connect with it
if you consider yourself emotionally strong
well here’s a series for you ‘This is us’
i first heard about this series on someones snap and couldn’t help but check it out
It recounts the story of a couple expecting triplets who lost one of the them and adopted another baby.
now am not going to give you spoilers here but, this i can say – every episode shows an emotional moment they brings you back to reality as you connect with these scenes. The first Season which began last year has 18 episodes and the season 2 is already scheduled for the 26th of September.
So check it out -you never know grief till you feel it
It feels so easy for people to wake up and start asking
why don’t i have it yet?
i need this now!
i don’t have this and that
why is my life the same?
but then we forget
to count our blessings and recognise the value of what we already have
so you want a car, a house maybe and all that life’s luxury
but then again
you woke up today didn’t you?
this brings me back to quote i came across from Amanda Torroni’s book which i haven’t read yet titled ‘stargazing at noon’
“remember yesterday when you swore you wouldn’t make it through you woke up this morning didn’t you”
yeah you woke up this morning didn’t you.
I don’t want to be a little cliche here but when there’s life there’s hope. you might not have everything you desire but be grateful for what you have.
in other news i figured i haven’t shared any songs lately but as you get on with your days activities why dont you plug on this one from Soule titled goodlife
