While swimming in lake Michigan there were lots of minnows swimming around us. Although my first instinct was to scream and run I decided to show my brothers up... they had all caught minnows with their bare hands and I wanted to prove that I could too!
I set my eye on a minno... followed it and ahhhhh!!! No sooner had I caught it in my hand did I drop it screaming! Yes, I was trying to catch a minnow in my hand, but I didn’t think it would actually work.
|Lesson learned... don't try to outdo my brothers :)|
The second I caught it I realized there was no way I wanted that slimy fish in my hands. After recovering from the shock... I laughed it reminded me of life... It can be so thrilling to go after something... that I never stop and realize that it isn’t what I want.
Have you ever chased a dream only to realize it isn’t something you want?
