This week I’d like to share a life lesson that came to mind as I read the Burger King Bill of Rights. I must add that personally, we avoid junk food and this is in no way a BK promo. Yet, I’d like to reflect on the life-changing truth in the BK Slogan, HAVE IT YOUR WAY ! Of course, we may need to be more delicate as we translate the same to life as we now deal with human beings and not inanimate sandwich ingredients 😉 however, the basic principle remains the same, be it the Sandwich or be it Life: HAVE IT YOUR WAY ! LIVE IT YOUR WAY!
BURGER KING BILL OF RIGHTS
You have the right to have things your way.
You have the right to hold the pickles and hold the lettuce.
You have the right to mix Coke and Sprite.
You have the right to a Whooper sandwich with extra tomato, extra onion and triple cheese.
You have the right to have that big-meal sleepy feeling when you’ve finished.
You have the right to put a paper crown on your head and pretend you are ruler of “(your make-believe kingdom here.)”
You have the right to have your chicken fire- grilled or fried.
You have the right to dip your fries in ketchup, mayonnaise, BBQ sauce or mustard or not.
You have the right to laugh until soda explodes from your nose.
You have the right to stand up and fight for what you believe in.
You have the right to sit down and do nothing.
You have the right to eat a hot and juicy fire- grilled burger prepared just the way you like.
You have the right to crumble this Bill of Rights into a ball and shoot hoops with it.
HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”- Mary Anne Williamson
Nugget of Life: LIVE LIFE KING-SIZE!!! “The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.”- Eleanor Roosevelt
