Variety is the Spice of Life

Variety is the Spice of Life

Author: Rizwan Ahmed Memon

A life teeming with fun, ecstasy, and enjoyment is not possible without variety. Variety is something which gives life new options, new experiences, and new pathways. All these changes make one’s life memorable.

Variety has a decisive role in life; it adds zing. Variety can make one’s life fabulous. If there is no change, no newness in life, then life will be devoid of merriment, experience, and learning.

If you have been in the same city for many years, your life has probably grown stagnant. Your routine has inevitably kept you busy at work and around the house. If you relocate to another city, you will have new experiences, view life with a fresh perspective, and you will gain new knowledge.

Anyone who faces new situations, new people, and new things, will become adroit, experienced, and knowledgeable. Ordinary things lead to boredom; extraordinary things provide fun, knowledge, and enjoyment. Strive for variety in life. 

There is an old expression: “the more the merrier”. This means that where there are more things to do or more people to interact with, there will be more fun. Likewise, when there are more changes, life becomes more colorful and charming.

It has been observed that older people have more experiences in life than the young ones. It is because the elders have seen and faced more difficulties and predicaments. They have a wealth of experiences, so they know better how to deal with them.

Many people start new activities with great zest, but then fade after a period of time. Why do people give up? The reason is that the initial attraction of new activities will dwindle once these activities become routine. The activities lose their fascination. Our minds need recurring stimulation from new tasks and challenges. A song which you listen to for the first time provides more entertainment than one played repeatedly on the radio. If played often enough it will become boring and irritating. It ceases to entertain you, and then you become desperate for a new tune.

People who do something special, something beneficial for others, something revolutionary, or something amazing are always remembered. People who do these things introduce a kind of variety into life which makes them influential and preeminent.

One must try to have as much variety as one can. One day the game of life will come to an end. If you live your life with gusto and variety, you will be able to look back on your days on earth with contentment and satisfaction. Live your life to the fullest, before it is your turn to cross the great divide.
