I love a good inspirational quote. But the one above has been entering my head a bit too much for my liking recently.
Let me explain.
I have a short walk around the corner from our home to J’s day care centre. About two weeks ago, I noticed a dead bat hanging from a power line strategically placed above the footpath. On quite a number of occasions the breeze has been stiff. My pace quickens as I look up at the dead bat as I will it not to fall splat on my head.
And each time I do it, the same internal monologue pops up in my head: ‘Do something you’re scared of everyday’
I’m pretty sure outrunning potentially falling dead bats is not what E. Roosevelt had in mind when she first said this!
What have you done today that scared the bejesus out of you?
