What flavor am I?

When you reach my age, life can become a little "day-after-day ho hum." There are those that are always whining a "been there done that" attitude, or have the "I just don't have the excitement or energy anymore" feeling. And there are always reasons, in your mind, why you can't do this or that, whether young or old.

A full and abundant life has to do with attitude, as I was reminded the other day by author Wayne Cordeiro. I tend to get in a ho hum funk sometimes, but Wayne admonished us to "take a pick and dig at the mountain--never, never give up!" He quoted Proverbs 24:16, "for a righteous man falls seven times and rises again." Staying down and depressed is a life that has no spice, no seasonings, no tang. A plain old vanilla being.

So how do I have a saporific life filled with character, quality and spirit of saltiness that is satisfying to everyone around me?

I live my life within bounds,

but fully bounded by personal liberty.

I emote a caring attitude,

but restrain myself with integrity.

I am person of character,

an independent person of quality.

I am who I am,

flavored constantly with

God's love of humanity.

What flavor am I?

This is an inspiring post! As for what flavor you are, I don't know but I'll take a guess - peppermint! Don't know why I picked that other than I'm craving a mint!

Excellent blog posting.

I LOVE the flavor of "plain old vanilla".

My first thought was also cinnamon.

However, it does not seem to fit the majority of clues... hummm

Answer: Anointing

hmm...that's hard to guess. I also thought of cinnamon when I saw 'spices' and 'seasoning', but it doesn't seem I shall guess oranges? That's a scent that wakes me up anywho, a pick-me-up if you will =)

Gosh, I have no idea! You're totally a vanilla gal. However, your clues made me think of pistachio (salty), chocolate, or pumpkin (for the spices).

You sound like a sweet tangy flavor....something on the lines of sweet pineapple!
