My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Fantastic advice. Everyone need to just slooooowwww dooowwwwwnnn a bit. :)
so true...so true. life is to be enjoyed, not endured. it is a choice!
And spit it out, if it's rotten? lol. Very well said, Marty. Take your time with life, and don't rush. I believe one of your aphorisms that got stuck in my mind was that "if you have to rush, then don't go". =)
mmm... yes, I agree np. Now I'm hungry.
well said! as matter of fact, it was something i missed to notice before!
nice one! age is teaching me to enjoy each morsel : )
I don't even like chewing. I'm still waiting for food in the form of a pill. But yes, enjoy the moments in life, cause if you are just rushing through to get to the end, well that's death.
I agree, life could be more beautiful when you enjoy every bit of it.
Triviality is steak & eggs - enjoy it!
It surely does. And don't cover it in salt beforehand. That really makes me mad!
I just want to say those who enjoy food are noisy eaters too!
i'm going to use that every time anyone tells me I'm eating too slowly.
This aphorism is perfection, it says a great deal in so few words. Love it! Thanks NP!
Oh, I couldn't agree more!
Loved this one!
wisdom behind your words is a story of life,this line hold lot like a sea in a bowl,that is what we need,just take a moment and try to take a look at the blessings we have,this is our basic need because it gives us stability and satisfaction, really beautiful NF.
Not to mention it's so good for your digestive system.
The perfect reminder to savor the flavor of every moment of life.
Ugh! I was just about to write something about 'savoring the flavor' of life, but TT beat me to it! Very true, NP. Chew things slowly. Enjoy.
I am a very picky eater these days! Thanks for the advice, Marty.
It's almost spooky Marty - you have captured it so beautifully. Few years back, the young daughter counted secretly that I had chewed a bite 60 + times !
I agree. Life is in the munching! :)
A great advice. And it is not JUST eating slowly, like some friends here have meant. A bit of practical advice: chew it up (except for liquid or paste), allow it to stay just a little longer on your tongue, and, most importantly, focus your mind there (don't need to close your eyes unless you're onto some tasting competitions), and....enjoy. Trust me, you'll find a whole new world with every meal (and not just (empty?) philosophical or intellectual talks....)!
I agree with you............Very true...
