What Makes A Good Life?

What makes a good chef is the willingness to savor all types of taste, without being judgmental. Only then can the chef conjure the finest cuisine, by his mastery in tastes.

In the same manner, what makes a good life, is the variety of flavors that underpin the experiences.

Sweet moments create fond memories,
Bitter experiences test resilience,
Sour relationship teaches tolerance, and
Spicy times excite life.

When such wisdom colors my understanding,
Who am I to belittle our existence in this unique world,
That provides all the diverse ingredients?

And so… with clarity I ask a rhetoric question-
“What’s there to complain about?”
For this could really be a good life,
A good … Good Life!

(Writing inspired by One Republic’s song called ‘A Good Life’.)
