A Good Meal

Back in the days, we were told that a good meal must contain the various nutrients that constitute a balanced diet.
With time I’ve come to see that it requires some effort and processes to have such a meal.
One thing I observed is that good meals are prepared and not necessarily stumbled upon. Various ingredients are used to garnish a meal and different approaches are used to create different effects in meals.
There are stipulated proportions for the various constituents as well as temperature regulation and duration of exposure to heat.
To enjoy a good meal, you must sort the necessary items and ingridients, make the required cooking utencils available and follow the stipulated procedure or you either employ the services of caterers or patronize restaurants or similar facilities.

In life, we often desire a lot more than just a good meal.
We desire accomplishments of various degrees and acquisition of diverse sorts.
We often forget that, just like there are procedures to get a good meal, our desires can only come to fruition if we find the procedures that generate such results and implement them.
Faith, patience, enthusiasm, foresight, diligence, discipline, creativity, self-esteem, self-control, attitude, focus and a whole lot of virtues have their various roles to play in attaining the desires of our hearts.
If we consider these to be the ingredients required for a good meal, where a good meal here refers to our desires and dreams, then we must also ensure that we discover the appropriate proportions to use them and what items to combine them with.
We must equally regulate the temperature intensity and duration to achieve perfect results.
I have not forgotten the fact that fruits are naturally ready to eat and are highly nutritious. We don’t necessarily need to prepare them but we have to either hunt for them or purchase them if we don’t grow them.
Likewise, there are already made opportunities in life that may just require washing and slicing like a few fruits or peeling and sucking like a few others.

Just as our needs and desires are not meals alone, our hygiene and nutrition procedure should not be restricted to meals alone.
If we can go shopping for food stuffs and go through the rigors of cooking them, we can do the same for our other needs and desires.

Find out the necessary items that would solve your problems.
Find what ingredients would appropriately blend to get the precise results.
Follow the procedure and adhere to all the regulations (if any), ensuring that the right proportions are applied.

Treat your desires in life like a good meal, you’ll definitely have a good life!

Certain foods wouldn’t get done without fire or heat; heat has it’s place in life!

Food items, ingredients and spices are used in various proportions; let’s learn to apply moderation and proportion in life.

Slicing, grinding, blending, pounding and numerous others are necessary cooking practices; some things in life may require similar processes in order to become usable.

Without heat, most meals would never become good meals because they’ll be raw;
heat has a massive role to play in getting things done, apply it in your favour.

We wash our hands and the stuffs we cook for the purpose of hygiene; let’s keep our lives clean in the best way we can and both our dreams and ourselves will be full of life and health.

Life wants you to prepare each dream and desire of yours like you prepare a meal!
Find all the necessary items and ingredients, then proceed with the processes that eventually deliver the desired end result.

Don’t grumble through life, but like a master chef, grab the stuffs you’ve got and turn them into delicious meals!

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!
