Why you? Why me?

A life crisis is a turkey dinner with all the fixings prepared just for you by the universe.

      You have two options..........

      You can look at it in dread and horror realizing that the kitchen is an unholy mess of food bits spilled and dessicated on the stove, pots and pans that may require a blow torch to burn off caked residue, followed by a pile of dishes whose height challenges that of the Burj Kahlifa in Dubai (at a mere 2,717 feet and 163 floors).

       Or, you can realize that this banquet may have something to offer, sit down, get comfy, and take your time to eat, making sure to fully savor/investigate/understand each bite. How does this food smell? How does it look? How does it feel in your mouth? How does the texture change with chewing? How does the taste change with chewing? What are the sensations as you swallow? What will happen to this food as it winds its way through your stomach and intestines? 

       Each little bit breaks down and is turned into fuel, your fuel. To fuel your blood, your flesh, your organs, your thoughts, your feelings, your moods, your understanding, your healing. To fuel you.

       The universe provides all manner of opportunities (good, bad, pretty, ugly, easy, hard, joyful, excruciating) that we can make use of as we travel through this winding maze called life.

Happy and productive travels my friends!!!!!!!
