Is Your Life an Experiment?

by Leslie Sann

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cooking eggs this morning, I added a spice that I thought might add a yummy flavor. It did not. While eating my breakfast, I kept hearing an inner voice say, “I don’t like this.” It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t what I had imagined.

Life is like that.

We take a risk, try something new and … well … sometimes it turns out other than we had planned.

So what.

Now what?

I could have thrown the eggs away, fed them to the dog (oh, I no longer have a dog), tossed them on the compost heap or eaten them as they were.

Which is what I did.

Not my favorite breakfast of all time and it served me in living another day.

AND, I know not to add that particular spice combo to my eggs in the future.

Live and learn.

Get it?

We show up, participate and Life teaches us.

No good, bad, right or wrong, just an opportunity for next.

Here’s to your next .. which is already unfolding from right now.
