Life is like Korean Banchan. Banchan are small dishes of food served along with cooked rice in Korean cuisine. The maximum number of dishes is 12, just like what we have at Nakwon Korean BBQ House at Taman Danau Desa.
While I was tasting the dishes, I came to realize that there were four distinctive flavors, i.e., salty, spicy, savory, and sweetish. I didn't include sourish and bitter-ish because there was none. I was thinking, life is like a combination of these different flavors. It's the kaleidoscope of life, that we as human beings, are lucky enough to have to go through the full spectrum of it.
Sometimes and luckily quite frequent, we encounter happy and memorable occasions. So, we're really sweet and joyful. We smile, we laugh, we hug. We're just happy!
Sometimes and unfortunately, we have to face undesirable situations. So, we pout, we scowl, and we don't want to talk to one another.
Once in a while, we're forced to make difficult decisions that cause anxieties. Sometimes, we have to come to face with unforeseen uncertainties that bring forth anxious anticipation.
Whatever the case is, I believe there's harmony in all aspects of chaos and challenges. And I love every bit of it! :)
Here's a quote to summarize this week's Reflect 52 post:
"You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened... or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on."
Happy New Year!
