It dawned on me today that what if life itself is actually your lava for life? What if you just had a love, appreciation, and wonder for life in general that was so a part of you that it would be so hard to take that ingrained love in you away from you? We all have our own perspectives and outlooks on life that has been shaped by so many factors. Why do some of us have the ability to smile at life more than others? What is it that makes some people breathe life, like REALLY breathe life, and take it in?
So, on my post titled simply “Life”, I referred you all to the pinterest website, in which I indicated that several of my lava’s for life were represented. One of those lavas for life of mine was the food recipes that were being shared. I have ALWAYS been fascinated by cooking shows on TV and the sheer wonder of how seemingly unconnected ingredients can come together to bring a masterpiece that plays on your palette. Maybe there are just some things in life that you will love forever. Maybe cooking, (and watching people cook) is one of mine. I remember watching Justin Wilson when I was a kid, and to this day while cooking, I sometimes still think of the way he says, “I GUARANTEE“. He was one of the people who made cooking fun, and more than “just cooking food”. He made it into a time to bring people together with his nostalgic and funny stories, where the food was really celebrated and appreciated.
As I got older, cooking shows on television evolved and changed with the times, but my love for watching them never went away. Food Network is still one of my favorite stations, even though I don’t have time to watch it much nowadays due to the busy life I live. My love for watching people cook has been a constant throughout my life, and I can’t help but put the pieces together to say that I’ve found one of my lavas for life in that.
So, I hope that maybe now you also will begin to think about those constants in your life that you’ve always loved. Was it a favorite childhood cartoon? A hobby? A special place? An activity? A sports team? Whatever it is, happy hunting!
