A few years ago Robert Fulghum wrote a book titled “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”. I have come to really appreciate the lessons we were taught in kindergarten.
A few years ago someone asked about a situation I was going through. My response was simply “I am the wrong bird”. I was referring to the story about the ugly duckling. You know…the story about the duck that was teased every day about being ugly and so different from the other ducks. One day he ran away and saw a flock of beautiful swans and wanted to swim with them, but remembered how much he had always been teased about how he looked. Then he saw a reflection of himself in the water and realized that he looked just like the swans.
My point is…you have to know ….who…. you …are! We must then stay true to ourselves and keep searching until we find our flock. You won’t be at peace until you do.
