Weekend Wisdom: Noticing what you love will help you release what you don’t.
This week was all about the geese.
On one of my morning walks, I noticed this gaggle of geese heading towards traffic. The parents, the teens, the toddlers and even the babies all waddling out to the street even though there was a perfectly good lake and rolling green hills behind them. Traffic stopped and the geese turned around but they couldn’t quite find their way back.
Once they were on the sidewalk, I walked along beside them discouraging them from walking into the road, heading back to the lake. We made it all the way back to the lake but they had other plans and walked away in another direction.
Two days later I came back and was thrilled to find them eating and resting by the lake. They didn’t need my help but it was lovely to take a walk with them (socially distanced of course). Oh, and note to self … no one needs me to tell them what direction to go or what’s best for them.
Ok … onto the favorites.
