I read this blog on my fav website, Superforest : Leon " Seasonality Chart ". It was about fruits and vegetables in season. This article let me think of the benefit of the seasonal food. Also...I thought about our life. Our life also have the four seasons, you know?
First of all, how many of us are aware of the seasonal food when we cruise around the supermarket for our breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Our mother nature does not intend to produce strawberries for year-round, but we see them almost everyday. What's wrong with this picture? Aren't we supposed to eat the foods only comes out in its season??? Think about this. Here's a white peach at a local supermarket, and you're about to grab it...just because you love it so much. Then...how is the taste? hmm...something is wrong, this is not as same as the one you like. Yes, those are not grown naturally. So, they are lack of its true nutrients! Let's take a moment...the seasonal fruits and vegetables give us its magical power of nature directly into our body's system. They will help us get through the season. As a result, we are happy and healthy! If you pick the one which is forced to grow in a wrong season, then it may not as powerful as the other one.
* FYI, This rainbow colored chart was created by people of Leon.
Now, turn your attention to your own life. You see the ups and downs or the beginning and end of something throughout your life, right? Don't you think it's like you're experiencing " a season " of your life? What I want to say is this : Everything has its season. We can actually put ourselves in a chart above, too. The four seasons indicate the cycle of our life. Let's say, someone is starting out his new career = Spring time. His work starts thriving rapidly and he's super energetic = Summer. He starts to see the result of his efforts and gains some achievements = Autumn. The work has completed, then he's now contemplating to get down on a new assignment = Winter. Get it??? Know where you are, which season you are in. Try to use your maximum energy being the very best of you in the season. If you know this rule, all the good nutrients comes together into your life and you'll be able to grow a yummy fig or something!
FYI, my life still remains in the winter, but not that bad at all. The taste of it? hmm... slightly sweet, a touch of bitterness to follow. Just like a spoonful of Blood Orange ( winter fruits ) Marmalade... Looking forward to a warm spring time soon. I may dig for some Apricots ( spring fruits ) afterwards...! Cheers to you all.
