Mmmm… Condiments. Okay, we know that Capote didn’t mean actual condiments. What he means, is if a failure has been leaving a foul taste in your mouth, you can change how you perceive its flavour.

As we age and responsibilities grow, it's easy to turn on auto-pilot and allow life to take the lead. This quote from prolific author C.S Lewis reminds us that we have control to lead our own life.

Christopher Reeve is a wonderful example of how you can choose hope rather than giving up. After a horse accident, Reeve suffered paralysis from the neck down. The likelihood of gaining full mobility was small, and he contemplated whether to move forward with life. In a bleak moment waiting for a 50/50 chance reparative surgery, a movie moment occurred. The doors to his room burst open with an almighty bang. In hurried a stocky fellow in a blue scrub hat, canary yellow surgical gown, and rounded glasses, muttering nonsense in a Russian accent. The zany Russian doctor turned out to be Robin Williams, who had come to cheer up his friend. Of this encounter, Reeves said, “I knew then: If I could laugh, I could live.”
Have you been living too far in the future, worry about things that haven't happened yet? This is a good lesson: You are in charge of creating your future. Sure, they say a large part of the future is unknown. But your tomorrow can be influenced by your today. And that makes today a powerful thing indeed.
Think that your best days are behind you? It's normal to think that the good days are behind us, especially during a rough patch. But what if we stopped projecting this idea and believed that the future holds days better than the last. It could be pretty powerful!
