If I were my own best friend I would remind myself of a simple truth…
Some days you are the bird.
Some days you are the car.
***Someone asked me recently if it’s always “sunshine and rainbows” in my world. My first response was shock (that someone out there thinks my world is that great), my second was pleasant surprise (that I’m putting up a pretty good front), and my third was reality.
This is the reality: there are good days and bad days (the bird vs. the car). It’s all in how you frame it, what you learn from it, and how you move forward.
There have been plenty of “car days” recently. The key is dusting myself off, cleaning up the mess, and figuring out what I learned. And sometimes, unfortunately, there is nothing to learn; it’s just a bad day and I got pooped on. So what? Move forward.
Oh man! I have been the car lately. I can’t wait to be the bird soon 🙂
You will be I am sure. Just be nice to whatever or whoever is the car!
reminds me of something my dad used to say to us as kids when we were pouting…he’d say “stick that lip out any further and a bird is going to come around and poop on it”. Moral….move forward before a bird eyes your lower lip!
