Points to Ponder #11

“Sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, all must be tasted.” – Chinese proverb

Have you ever heard the concept of “seasons” in life? It refers to an idea that nothing in life lasts forever, and with time, all things change.

Do you feel like your life is in an unhappy state? Are you stuck in a rut? It will pass! Sadly, this also applies to the good times as well. The elation of a promotion, the excitement of a new relationship–all will fade with time.

Think creatively about how to maximize the sweet times and minimize the sour ones.

  1. Amen! How true. Both the good and the bad pass, though they might linger, they are indeed over. And cannot be changed.

    Today, life’s pretty good.

    Great post.

  2. If we practice looking for only the good, we will feel less of the bad times…. they will be there, but our concentration will be elsewhere.
