What I mean by this phrase is that many of us fail to realize the purpose of what we are "meant" to do in life, instead of realizing what we are most capable of doing. The inherent talents we don't realize we have. Many of us "spoons" watch "knives" do what they are good at day in and day out with such precision, success, and ease it makes us want to be knives too. So the spoon practices and tirelessly sharpens its edges to be more like the knife until its able to cut just like the knife. The tragedy now is the spoon is just a second class knife. The spoon ruined it's chance of becoming a world-class spoon because it never realized or discovered it was capable of scooping, measuring, or digging. Things the spoon was always capable of doing and excelling at but never took the time to realize because it was trying to be like the knife.
I use the spoon and knife example to compare how often we try in vain to find our "purpose" because we are either delusional of what our talents are or we try to buy into someone else's idea of who we are and what we should be. We often buy into someone else's idea of what success and happiness are because we never took the time discover it for ourselves...or we were too afraid to try.
Some talents aren't as easily recognized as being great at math, dribbling a basketball, or being able to sing...but the talents that each and every one of us have can be maximized to their potential with great success. Providing not only a great feeling of satisfaction for ourselves, but providing much use and service to others.
The goal and a true blessing is to be able to discover and cultivate our talents to maximize our potential. Sometimes discovering your talent comes by accident, sometimes its that nagging voice you've always had inside your head (not in a schizophrenic way), or that yearning you've always had to try a particular something. Its not always easy and it may take time, but its worth exploring. The fear shouldn't be of failure, instead, it should be of failing to at least try. I cant think of a justifiable excuse to never at least TRY!
Don't be afraid to try. Instead, be afraid of living a second-rate version of someone else's life instead of a world-class version of your own.
This is deeper than most of my posts, but it was on my heart. I felt someone needed this as much as I did when I originally wrote it.
On to the review!!!
Upon first bite, I taste..wow! These are salty!!! I taste an overwhelming amount of salt! As my taste buds begin to settle, I can taste cilantro and onion clearly. Distinctly. The remaining flavors of cheese, jalapeno, and garlic kind of blends together in an indistinguishable mish-mash of salty confusion. Weird thing is, I KINDA like these, but they are just too salty to be taken seriously.
2 outta 5 on the Chip Mack scale.
