One of our favorite meals is salmon. Cooked on a plank with a little brown rice and asparagus.
What is it about salmon that makes it so good? The flavor? The nutritional value?
Salmon just taste good. And it is so good for you! It’s an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium.
Perhaps what makes salmon so good has something to do with their ability to swim upstream. Their dedication. Perseverance.
They begin life in a stream. A river, fresh water, then they migrate to the ocean. To salt water. Then years later, once mature, their internal compass leads them back home. To the gravel they came from to spawn. And to die. And it’s an upstream battle doing it.
That got me thinking. We are similar to our friends the salmon in many ways. When we are able to move within our resistance, great change can happen. When we listen to our inner compass.
We can all stand a little swimming against the stream in life. To better prepare us for those uphill battles we must face from time to time. To grow us. To build a little character. To connect us with our source.
Here’s to salmon! Grilled, chilled or any way you care to serve it. Let it be a constant reminder of what we all can accomplish if we will just dive a little deeper and jump a lititle higher in our journey. When everyone is going one way, why not go the other, and stand out?
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed. Romans 12:2
