Turn the box to its side …

When did this become so difficult?  There was a time when choosing a breakfast cereal was a no-brainer. Cool box art, interesting prize inside, and taste were my top three deciding factors. Now that I have gotten older, cereal selection has taking on a whole new dimension. Not that the earlier factors are no longer valid [smile], but the value of what the cereal is made of has become paramount in my making a selection.

The thing I know now, that I did not know when I was younger, is that the substance of the cereal is foundationally parallel to the cereal’s many benefits; or lack thereof. In other words, what the cereal is made of – really does matter.

Ironically, my view of relationships and the company I keep have evolved a lot like my view of breakfast cereal. I now mull through the aisles (life) taking careful account of what is being offered. Never again just grabbing a cereal box while thinking, “Oh, this one will do”….. Nope!….In an instant, I consciously summarize quality, characteristics and features that are easy to view. When it appear that I have found my selection, I then turn the box to its side, closely reviewing the Ingredients, Nutritional Facts and Daily Value. side of cereal

Can you imagine what our relationships would be like if we took the time to mull over them as closely as we mull over breakfast cereal?
