“A taste of summer takes us there regardless of the moment.” #bgdtcoaching.
Certain things are so closely linked to a period of life it can be difficult to separate them in our mind. A taste of summer takes us there regardless of the moment. Likewise, a smell, a sound or a particular sight might all transport us to wherever the item originated in our experience.
Right now, at least here in Italy, a taste of summer seems more than appropriate. The chill of winter has moved into the memory and long hot days are before us. Of course a taste of summer could be read as a prelude, or better an antipasto, to what is to come.
Being able to anticipate a desired sensation, in a way similar to visualizing the achievement of goals, provides encouragement to maintain our focus to reach the objective. That said, it is possible a taste of summer, or a glimpse of what is to be, may influence us to amend our direction.
Although we cannot change the order of the seasons, nor modify things beyond our control, we have the freedom to alter goals to best suit our actual situation or message from the heart. A taste of summer in such instances is probably sufficient to help us find a new way forward.
Thanks for choosing to read this ‘Taste of summer‘ post today.
