Pep Talk: be Braver than a Bird Going After a French Fry.
The other day I took myself out to a lovely lunch. It's was incredibly gorgeous outside so I decided to eat on a patio in downtown.
Shortly after I'd arrived, a grackle swooped in and parked himself on the planter near me.
Clearly he did not know that I wouldn't share.
Soon after, another bird swooped into the dining area and grabbed a French fry. Didn't matter to him that there were people everywhere. He was getting the damn fry!
Can't blame him. I love fries too.
Looking at the bird with the fry in his mouth, I was reminded of the meme "Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry."
I thought to myself, "No. Today I will be braver than a bird going for a french fry."
All too often, we're not brave enough to go for the happiness in which we seek. Sure, that bird with a french fry is happy, but he had to get it first.
What is it that you want but are afraid to go for?
