Tasting Notes for Life

Ever go wine tasting and not quite know what tastes you were experiencing?   Swirling around- is that melon and oak – or is it more of an aged Fig?  Then you listen to the wine steward, and she tells you – “it’s actually tasting notes of  honeycomb, warm summer straw, slate and aged tobacco.”   Of course- What a Neanderthal!  What am I – a beer drinker?!  (yes)

4lawofattractionThat’s a Big Secret to Life uncorked.   Your creative side and imagination was quietly whispering to you one thing, but someone else is telling you- “The Truth”.   So, I taste it again and – How bizarre –  now all I can taste is the “sweet, warm summer straw and tobacco flavors”.

The important question for each us, is  WHO IS YOUR SOMALIER IN LIFE?

Your inner self, your indigenous spirit, and thoughts would lead you one way, but unfortunately we all are surrounded by “wanna’ be somaliers”!  Everyone telling you HOW IT REALLY IS, what life really tastes like, how to LABEL it, what it’s made of, how to drink it, etc….     Once we hear, or read, their interpretation of LIFE, it’s very easy to lean in that direction. To find those flavors, they suggest.   We all tend to see what we expect to see, or taste in LIFE.

Be your own wine steward!   If you taste bubble gum and dried wood, then say it, be it, live it!    Let YOUR imagination and YOUR experience be your guide – Not someone else’s intellect, or imagination.  

HOMEWORK-  GO DRINK!  Drink in LIFE to the fullest.  Drink it up with zest, and listen to your inner somalier, your  feelings, and your spirit to decipher your own experiences.

Trust your own intuition, imagination, questions, experiences, problems, answers, and speed of life to age your own unique, full-bodied Tasting notes on life.    And Enjoy.

Hittin’ that sweet spot for life!

You are the pinata!  When life takes a poke at you what comes out?

You can only give away that which you have, right?  Look around you to see what you’ve scattered when life blindly took a little jab at your outer protections.  When you felt strung up, or got a beating in the past, what came out? Is it sweet stuff or not so sweet stuff?
