I sent this picture to a friend the other day. I said, what pops in your mind when you see this?
I saw him when I went into the file room. I may have even said out loud, what ARE you doing there? What popped in my mind was “poor life choices”. I mean this small praying mantis is 13 floors up from the ground, with another 13 floors up to the top. What is it looking for? Why in the world did it think THIS was a sound plan? I related to him, sometimes I feel small and 13 floors up with no net, thinking, what have I done this time?
I received one word back from the friend: determination.
It is all about perspective, isn’t it?
