Happy Haiku: Recipe for Life


Happy Haiku: These will always be positive-themed poems using the 5–7–5 syllable format in English or Japanese.


If you follow the same steps again and again in cooking, the result should be the same, right? Well, when it comes to the notion of life itself, the same logic applies. You should expect a certain result if you always use the same ingredients. Lo and behold — what comes out in the end is going to change if you alter ingredients or scrap the recipe altogether!

In other words, deviate! Ever since I changed my daily habits, my overall life is shaping into something entirely different (but in a positive direction).
