Life really is quite like a cocktail, each person adds the various component parts, then mixes them up to get their reality. Ingredients like imagination, your dreams, wishes, hopes, aspirations, ideas, et cetera can be included as seen fit; anything can be added to the melting pot as decided, any combination of things that is desirable; then just mix it all up to see how things turn out.
About Life Is A Cocktail
So much to Choose from but which ingredients to choose, perhaps something original would be more fun? If an actual cocktail was formulated like this, for example, it's acceptability would be a case of hit or miss; perhaps drinkable, perhaps not; maybe in order to not want wasting it we drink it anyway rather than throwing it away and starting again from scratch as should be logical. To get a good, drinkable cocktail it is easier to follow a formula at first, then gradually experiment until you can create an original drink on your own formula. Perhaps the finished drink is modelled on some other famous well-tried recipe; or perhaps the final creation is purely your own, or it could even be a bit of both.
Yes, the right choice is something original, but should be drinkable; um.... guess this may need some though! So it is with life; to follow the success of others is always the easiest route; there is potential to even follow the well-trodden path that society lays out for people to follow from cradle to grave. The road less traveled however, the one created by ourselves could be much harder, as we struggle to find the correct combination of factors to make the life that is truly desired. But avoiding the pain that may be involved with such a self-created life course there is potential also we'll miss the dance, the dance of life; those things that give life its mystery, joy, excitement, a sense of 'I did it my own way'.
Having that slight twist of originality is what should give life the edge it needs! So, when you drink from the cup of life what will your drink be; the well tried recipe, or something original, exciting, with a twist of something brand new?
Life has many opportunities, identifying these or following intuition for what feels a right direction to pursue, while not letting chances drift by is very critical to achieving the desired result. Not paying attention to the various dynamics of life can lead to unwanted realities taking on an undesirable aspects, resulting in bringing about experiences that are not constructive or positive.
Grasping personal agendas, not letting days go by without fully addressing objectives that will create the desired life is wasteful. The potential always exists, available in numerous forms, governed by your perception being energised through a firm focus on what you want. Being uncompromising is necessary to identify what is ideal rather than settling for anything that seems viable.
There is no point making extraneous sacrifices and effort in order to live a certain lifestyle that demands can’t be balanced by benefits. Yet so many exceed their energy levels, sacrificing freedom in order to have a lifestyle that is at the limit or beyond personal abilities and means.
Reaching for the stars to achieve wonder is quite different if this embraces key desires that have the true essence that enables them to be possible. But forcing the demands that are required to live a luxurious life that is beyond currently available capabilities is stretching potential far over the limits. Finding satisfaction independent of material trappings is far more advantageous than seeking physical adornments that only create envy and jealousy among others; especially if that is the purpose.
It is true that life can be whatever you wish it to be or become; determining exactly what is necessary to achieve that goal is critical. The other important factor is not just to have a desire but to isolate what needs to be done to achieve that desire. Of course once all the pieces of the jigsaw are determined they need to be methodically put in place at the right timing then acted upon accordingly.
Flexibility to identify necessary or required changes and modifications to the fabric of life are always necessary once the indication becomes noticed for alterations to be made. Constantly upgrading of a desire to embrace changing circumstances both personal, within society and other external events should always be well considered.
Each new day has endless potential, what can be achieved, what can be gained, what differences can be made, not only for oneself but also for others. While time may seem limited to achieve everything that is desired, the many demands of life leave little time and attention span to focus upon what are personal wishes for how things should be.
