Squirrel's Inspire

Slice 12 of 31

Like a squirrel on the telephone wire, I feel like I am doing a great balancing act lately...keeping up with everything the kids and fam have been doing and all that's going on with school work has been a challenge.  As I was driving home, I saw the squirrel high above the road.  It was plowing full speed ahead across the wire and then suddenly stopped mid-way across the wire and paused.  I will follow nature's lead and pause...


How did I get to this point?

Wondering
Reflecting
Taking it all in
Thinking
Moving forward or
Going back

...Pausing...

Moving forward
Thinking
Taking it all in
Reflecting
Wondering

What will tomorrow bring?

  1. Amy, I really like seeing your smiling picture in the mornings when I post mine early! You always cheer me up! We write one day at a time, maybe you can teach, one day at a time? You are a great teacher! Your students and coworkers are lucky to have you!

  2. I chuckled when I read about the squirrel. I love the visual that it created. When I am getting down on my self about not meeting my expectations the visual of that squirrel will cause me to pause and take a deep breath and refocus.

    1. Yes, these busy little creatures constantly amaze me. When I saw it pause on the wire I thought, maybe I should do that more often.

  4. Sometimes that pause is what we need to collect ourselves amid the chaos so we can keep moving forward. I know you'll be able to meet all the challenges tomorrow brings!
