It’s been said; it is better to be live dog than a dead lion.
The list of dead lions is long and impressive. The list of lions that death has recently claimed is celebrated:
Who would have thought that Bobby Brown would out live Whitney Houston, this is a crazy world. Say that out loud, Bobby Brown outlived Whitney Houston, weird right.
Yes, things have not turned out as planned.
Yes, you are not yet a lion. But you are still alive, you still have time. Things are still possible. Your final chapter has not yet been written.
My daughter is 14 and not yet an adult. I have tried to explain to her that she is not yet finished. She is not yet complete. Her clumsiness will go away. She will be less shy. She will find her calling. In short she will grow.
That is also true for me and for you.
I am not yet done.
I am a work in progress.
I am trying.
I am moving.
Everyone is constantly in motion. You are either improving or deteriorating.
You either get better or you get worse, you never stay the same.
Improve. Grow. Stretch your wings. Be patient and give yourself the space to grow.
No one knows what is around the corner.
This dog life could still be turned into a Lions Tail.
