You meet a mystery man who offers you a sip of a magic potion which will enhance one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) while dulling the others. Would you take the sip? And which sense would you choose?
I think that I answered this prompt but you want to know the funny part? I can’t remember what I said or how I answered it. Did I answer in the affirmative or in the negative?
Well today I will answer as the mood strikes me and the mood says no thank you to the mystery potion. I know that my senses are getting dull due to getting older, I know that my days of being eyeglass free are getting numbered, my hearing is still pretty keen as is my sense of touch; my sense of smell and taste could definitely stand improvement. That being said, I will keep everything as it is, I can figure out the cooking thing very well and I am very happy with the way everything is in a crazy state of imbalance. If it got tweaked, it would throw me off my game and that would be too much to relearn.
I would always rather be happy with what I have and who I am, than always being on the lookout for the next best thing or to spend time getting worked on to super size one piece of me and letting other parts decline.
I do believe that I am always a work in progress but I think that the work should happen organically and naturally, by trial and error, those lessons mean more because it isn’t simply a sip of magic juice.
