At first glance, this might not look like a life-changing sandwich.
And to be honest, it wasn’t. It was delicious, but that’s about it.
However, it was so delicious that I was filled with gratitude. And I was filled with so much gratitude that I took a picture. And when I was scrolling through my camera roll for #thankyouthursday inspiration, I saw the photo, which sparked a memory.
That’s where the life-changing part comes in.
Any sandwich can be life-changing because life can change anytime
When I was upset some time ago, my mom told me something wise:
“You can start a diet in the middle of a sandwich.”
Meaning, every moment is an opportunity. If I don’t like what I am experiencing, I can do something different.
If it tastes bad—or if I simply don’t want more of the same—I don’t have to take another bite.
Or if circumstances are truly vile and I DO have to take another bite, I can plug my nose, or chew quickly, or find something palatable to wash it down.
And I can always take a deep breath.
Every sandwich can be a life-changing sandwich
Basically, I can always be eating (nor not eating) a life-changing sandwich.
What a tasty choice.
