Welcome to Life’s Diner. Here life is served any way you like it. We are proud to offer an extensive menu to you. As well, our dining room creates just the right amount of ambiance and comfort you desire. Please come on in! No reservations are necessary!
What if life was like a diner? You would wake up daily and go to the diner choosing what you wanted to dine on for that day. You peruse the menu and see that they have appetizers that are simple pleasures such as wearing your favorite old sweatshirt or brewing a delicious cup of coffee in the morning. You see an appetizer sampler that includes those things plus, the ability to move your body and the opportunity to phone a friend so that you can enjoy their company. Doesn’t that sound appetizing?!
The entrees in Life’s Diner are plentiful and offer literally the world on a silver platter. The only thing you have to do is choose. What will you choose? There are terrific offerings like the popular Joy-Filled Days. These days are deliciously simple, yet satisfying and fulfilling. Since you are aware enough to order this, you will also be aware enough to make further choices that go with a Joy-Filled Day, like a side of smiling, laughing, and sampling all the things that look appetizing!
Also on the Menu of Life there are other choices like Mundane-Filled Days, Stress-Filled Days, and Scrambled Days of Indifference. Sadly, many people default to these options because they really aren’t deciding to have something different. The menu of life requires you to choose what you like and when you don’t, you get whatever the leftovers are from the day before when you didn’t choose something you desire. The leftovers tend to be bland, tasteless, and stale, yet people wake up each day, sit in front of the extensive menu of choices and never really choose the things that they desire.
Tip of the Day: Just Choose Something and Make it Something You Like!
Each day offers another chance for you to choose from the Menu of Life. You have a choice of ordering anything a la carte and making up your own special dish of the day too!
You have the ever-popular Plate of Possibilities that includes a plate of bottomless possibilities and opportunities! These choices are great fun and provide tons of happiness. Here a few popular plates to consider:
The Positive Perspective Plate: This dish allows you to see the day through a positive lens.
The Purpose Plate: This plate provides the most fulfillment, yet many never order this.
The Chef’s Surprise: this is otherwise known as a Side of Curiosity. This dish will light you up and provide lots of adventure!
We have only one side at the diner and it is offered gratis to everyone. It works like medicine for your soul and quite literally fills you up, so we recommend that you sample it daily:
The Dish of Gratitude: This most popular side is recommended to be served daily and will soothe a troubled tummy, and an envious ego. It will calm a broken heart and will reliably lift up your spirits. It is the tastiest of all morsels.
Now, the desserts are really fantastic here at the diner and we encourage you to have dessert every day because here, the choices fill you up, but don’t contain calories! You cannot beat that!
The Joy of the Day: This dish features joyful opportunities
Smiles a la Mode: Served with or without ice cream, this dish is sure to please
Celebration Cake: This sweet dish offers celebrations of things great and small
Note: Now there is one thing we serve on this menu but we don’t encourage you to order it and that is Humble Pie. It only is served when you have earned it. We have noticed that when you order the side of gratitude it counteracts any possibility of you having to eat the Humble Pie, so may we suggest again to try The Dish of Gratitude?
Again, we want to welcome you to the Diner of Life. Please belly up to the bar and order all the choices your heart desires. Make good choices and your bill will always be free. Make bad choices or no choices and you will pay, somehow, someway. May we suggest making good choices?
Bon Appetit and Shine On!
