Thoughts walk randomly but suddenly you find that finding a way to connect them is a story worthy of telling.
I am sharing with the readers how reading two posts provided the initial seeds of the idea of this post. Ideas that are more random soon followed that sounded to walk astray. Later, I found their connection, which I am sharing with the readers.
Elena Gabor shared a post in which she wrote whatever you do today, big or small, it is your legacy. Make it a good one. Let the fragrance of your good deeds be a lasting one.
I commented Imagine days are sticks standing one behind another. Today’s flavor will pass on its flavor to the next one. Once the day is gone and falls down its fragrance stays. The process repeats.
The fragrance of today is the reinforced fragrance of tomorrow. Only a minute later I read a post by Anatolii Ulitovskyi in which he wrote The weekend is an “oasis” of the working week. I work on Saturday. However, I still try to devote time to my family. Is Saturday your favorite day? I commented with the same comment as I did on Elena Gabor’s post. Make every day better than the present day.
I imagined the sticks forming of seconds, followed by the sticks of minutes then hours, then days, and of years. Likewise, I imagined the sticks of words, followed by the sticks of thoughts, and then the sticks of behavior, followed by the sticks of habits, and finally the identity of each one of us.
Events are the sticks in our lives. If you each stick as a fragrant one then the fragrance of each even reinforces the fragrance of the following stick and so on. The opposite is equally true.
Expectations lead to words. I add this to the famous quote of Gandhi. Is this a valid assumption? I say yes.
Science has revealed that our expectations of the food we eat influence how the food tastes in our minds. Thoughts have their flavor. In this reference you find this quote “Fresh Thinking, then shows how these 21 flavors can be combined into 28 sample recipes (there are billions of other permutations) to tackle common issues like self-anger all the way through to finding your soul path”.
Thoughts are like the food we eat. Our expectations shape our thoughts and their flavor. In a post titled “Mind and food: thoughts, flavours, sense of guilt, and weight gain can influence one another” I read, “
One idea leads to another. One good expectation leads to a good thought. One good and flavored thought leads to flavored beliefs and all the way to a “flavored Identity”.
Start with good expectations. The world shall open its arms to you. It is all in your power. If the beginning is wrong, so the end identity shall be. Do not say Monday I hate and Saturday I love. Love each second, each event, and each happening so that you start the day with a food you like and be healthy.
Healthy living starts with a fragrant expectation. Make the first stick fragrant and if burnt shall flood your heart with its aroma.
