Yesterday I couldn’t wait to slice up some of the most perfect and beautiful strawberries that I’d have ever seen. Every strawberry in the carton was perfect; large, red, and perfectly shaped with the greenest and healthiest caps, stems, and leaves attached. And, as I sliced each strawberry into half, displaying its internal structure, one after another my disappointment grew. The strawberries were mostly white; I bravely took a bite. Yes, I had definitely been duped by its packaging.
I’ve also fallen victim to people with pretty packaging, and have noticed that a lot of people have done all of the work on the outside of themselves, can be pretty blank on the inside; and also like strawberries, people who have totally let them selves go on the outside, are also usually decaying on the inside as well. Then there is the ever perfect organic strawberry, with a little more time and effort may or may not be the largest or the most perfectly shaped, but in it’s own authentic way, is both beautiful on the inside and out.
Must remember to stay organic! Just a thought…
