Sometimes life comes in bite-sized chunks. Appetizers of things to come. Tidbits, if you will.
Rather than one grand, glorious meal, it’s served on small plates.
It also serves as a lesson in patience and perseverance. Most days, I have a platter mentality. I want it all now, please.
Or dessert first. ;)
While there’s nothing wrong with craving the completion of a project/dream/insert your unfinished business here, tidbits provide flavor to life, one bite at a time.
- A sentence that leads to a well-written paragraph.
- A measure of music that puts a tingle down your spine.
- A photo you gaze at again and again just for the joy of it.
- A day that feels good in spite of obstacles.
- A soul-filling satisfaction that emanates from giving a little and knowing it was enough.
Tidbits serve a dual purpose…
They simultaneously appease your hunger and whet your appetite for more. And, when they happen to come in edible form, yeehaw!
Last week I was going through the ol’ picture file and ran across some photos I’d forgotten about.
Tasty! Fun! Why didn’t I post these earlier?
I’ll tell you why.
Because they were waiting for the “idea” of tidbits to appear and my brain finally caught up.
Be patient with yourself!
By the way, there’s no need to labor over these Crispy Fried Polenta Bruschetta as pictured. (From Ally’s Kitchen — many thanks, Ally!) They’re entirely delectable, per the original recipe, like Caprese with a Southern kick.
I just happened to downsize them with an apple corer and cherry tomato slices so I could play with some new cocktail forks!
(Some days I just need to fuss… ever feel the same way?)
Ah yes, good things happen exactly when they’re supposed to — in exactly the “size” they’re supposed to occur.
Turn life’s tidbits into a party!
There’s no “one size fits all” — do what’cha need to do.
Downsize. Upscale. Adapt. You’ll know when it’s right for you…
Because you’ll be smiling.
Enjoying life’s hors d’oeuvres,
