Life is like a smorgasbord.

A smorgasbord is basically a Swedish version of a buffet. Since I like the word smorgasbord better than buffet, I'm using it here.
If you were to walk down a smorgasbord and take a look at all the dishes available, it can be quite intimidating. After all, you only have one plate to fill. You can only put so much food on that plate without stuff falling off all over the place and hitting the floor.

What if you knew you'd have to try all of it. Yep. All of it. Not only would you have to try it all, but you could only try it in the order it was laid out on the smorgasbord. Whether you like it or not, there it is and you are going to have to put it on your plate and eat it.

Would you want to walk around the whole smorgasbord to see what was there? Would it be encouraging or discouraging to know what you get to and have to eat?

Well, I would suggest you just take it one dish at a time. Sometimes it's better to not know what is coming. Even if you like what's coming, we all have to swallow a bitter (pill) at some point and it might be easier if it just lands on your plate with a big serving of chocolate cake and spaghetti marinara.

From the sweet and savory to the tangy and bitter, we will all taste a little of each in our lives.

I see how life is like a smorgasbord. Lot's of variety. Balance. Good yummy stuff. Icky stuff too.

Make sure to not overload your plate. Don't worry! It will always be full, even if it isn't always with what we want at the time. Eat it up and eventually, you'll get what you want.
