Conversations with drunk friends are very deep and philosophical sometimes. One such drunken conversation in the recent past made me realize something very interesting – Life is no different from a Cocktail (Non-alcoholics read ‘Mocktail’).
Every person has his/her own recipe for a perfect cocktail. I personally love scotch on the rocks. Some love vodka with lime water, some whisky with coffee and some others love the craziest of cocktails like the corned beef collins and whisky with mayonnaise. Some like to get high and dance and some others like to savour the drink over a candle light dinner with their partners. Every person has his/her own choice of brands, the right amounts, hang-outs, food to go with and most importantly people to drink with that make the perfect cocktail. A perfect cocktail is not just about the drink, it is about the wonderful feeling that the drink leaves us with.
So is LIFE.
Every person has his/her own recipe for a perfect life. Some love travelling, some writing, some adventure, some photography, some teaching and the list goes on. Some love being lost in just one thing (Like the ‘neat’ alcoholics). Some love a balance between two (Like a martini). Some love doing a little of many things (Imagine a cocktail of rum, vodka and gin). While some others love being crazy and doing new things (Like the crazy cocktailers). A perfect life is not just about what we do, it is about the wonderful feeling of going to bed happy everyday and wanting to wake up next day to do something awesome again.
The secret to happy life is to discover the recipe of your own perfect cocktail. Getting started and a little experimenting will definitely lead you to it.
So what are you waiting for? Go grab your perfect cocktail and if you don’t have the recipe yet keep experimenting till you find it 🙂
- You are responsible for the overdose and after effects of your cocktail. Consequences follow. So is life.
- Your recipe of a perfect cocktail might change with time and sometimes the change can be as big as cocktailers becoming mocktailers. Don’t be afraid of change. Enjoy it as long as you love your drink. So is life.
