I was at an event where I heard two women, very young, having a discussion about how the best things are all already found – best food, best books et.
It was such a depressing thought. I disagree so much that I had to post about it.
Whenever someone asks me what my favorite spice is or what my favorite dish is, it always makes me pause. I have to say something so I pick from things I love but I always feel like I dont have a favorite yet because I have yet to try new things. I have yet to taste so much of what the world offers.
There is so much delight in this world. So much that is yet to be discovered.
This I believe -
1. The best book is yet to be written.
2. The best song is yet to be sung
3. The most glorious day, even better than your best day yet, is yet to come.
4. If you feel you couldn't be happier, i can guarantee you that you will be happier in days to come – the best isnt here yet. THe world lives on hope, on dreams and for miracles.
If all the best were already done, why would we want to live on?
I spent an evening this week listening to the amazing and super-famous Susan Orlean read from her books.
When asked what her favorite piece was, she said, "I dont think i have written it yet."
