Flashback!! Me, Kenny and Ray, childhood friends, would go to this one pond every day in summer. Our goal was to catch the biggest frog evah. This one frog, we called him Freddy, he made the deepest sounds and he was HUGE! Every time we would dare to catch him, down deep in the dark waters he leapt. Today watching her run down to the rivers edge sparked this memory. She had no fear, just pure joy in attempting to catch these leaping things in the water!! No one around her had fear, and either did she! Yup, she found JOY in CATCHING FROGS!
THIS is what growing up is all about! Finding the right habitat, surrounding yourself with nurturing friends and family who can help direct one on paths which sustain health, joy and sustenance! And to think, all of this preserved within a generational memory.
The truth tho, if we never choose to exit the highway, respond to an invitation, the above wouldn’t even have been captured…witnessed! Dare yourself to start dreaming again!
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
“Life is beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it.”
