I try to refrain myself from posting any food photos on this blog, because I’ve taken so many and I’m afraid that if I post one, there will be a domino effect, where I can’t resist but post more photos of food. But here it is, because this photo connects to my thoughts right now.
In our busy life, we often complain about the bitterness, the stress, the tireless troubles we have, and we forget the sweetness that is around us. Sweetness is reachable, but are you too overwhelmed by the bitterness that you forget about the sweetness around you? Are you willing to reach out for the sweetness in life? Just like this small treat, if my friend hadn’t pushed me to try out this gelato shop, I would never go search for it. Especially, recovering from a really bad cold, this little treat brought me to heaven! Sometimes, we are so overwhelmed by the bitterness that surrounds us that we forget we can break through and find the sweetness.
Just a simple thought today – Give yourself a little push sometimes, try out some new things, because you may discover better things out there waiting for you in the world!
