Have you ever had that orgasmic moment after taking a generous bite of a sinfully delicious and moist Decadence Chocolate Cake? Yeah. That moment. Shooting for the stars isn’t confined to reaching your life goals. Sometimes it’s all about taking a few portions of a really scrumptious dish, and immediately have the heavens within your grasp.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about my plans in life. There’s this business I really want to put up; however, different hurdles left and right are pinning me down at the moment. I’ve long known putting up a business is tough, but I never thought it would be this tough. Why do I want to put a business up? It’s very simple: It’s because I want to be able to travel the world without the worries of getting fired the day I come back. Having my own business means I am my own boss. That’s the end goal in XX number of years in the future. Oh, right! And to get rich.
A good friend once told me that creativity flows freely when you’re having coffee (and probably having a stick or two while you’re at it). Somehow, coffee (or tea) and nicotine helps your brain make sense of all the dreams you’ve been making, and they help create the dots you need to connect to make your dreams a reality. Now I’m not sure if it’s the caffeine, nicotine, the ambiance, or whatever else, but I’m pretty sure I’ve connected a few good dots to bring me closer to that vacation (and getting rich)!
An experiment ensued:
A nice, sunlit room. Good music (that day, I was listening to The Flower Duet by Délibes). Good food, like, say, this really delicious lasagna I bought from Ystella’s Cuisine. I find that when my mouth is moving, I’m able to come up with good ideas. This led me to believe, therefore, that, given the right setting and company, good food equates to good plans, and ultimately, holding the stars of my dreams right at the palm of my hands.
Good food needn’t be expensive. It comes in all forms and (serving) sizes. From the tiniest, tastiest brownie, to the full-blown, 3-course meal at a 5-star hotel restaurant, delicious food is everywhere – all we need to do is look around. Taste. Discover. Many good food are found aplenty in various places.
In the pursuit of dreams, one must keep a mind open to any and all possibilities. Inspirations are drawn from a variety of media – even food. Indulge once in a while. Go ahead and take that bite. Savor each explosion of flavor in your taste buds. Be one more step closer to fulfilling your dreams.
In the Spanish language “Y stella” or “Y estrella” means “And (the) stars.” How apropos for a name that helped me be a step closer to my goals. Ystella’s Cuisine is a start-up, home-based, business now ready to take orders via Facebook. Their full contact details are in their page.
