Did you know that the saguaro cactus does not grow the first arm off its trunk until it is about 75 years old? All those single barreled cacti are young ones. Here's a nice middle aged one:
What if you experience frustration and feel as though nothing you are doing is having an impact? What if you feel like you are flapping your butterfly wings but nothing is working?
1. Clear out your defeatist self-talk and replace it with a newfound confidence in small actions creating big results. As long as you think nothing is working, nothing will work.
2. Keep flapping.
The saguaro cactus can hold several hundred gallons of water and weigh several tons. But its roots are pretty shallow and this makes it vulnerable to being damaged or washed away during spring floods that can follow the rains.
The deeper we go with putting directionally correct actions into play, the stronger our ability to endure stormy weather.
Flap, flap, flap.
I enjoyed my low key day today and am ready to get back on the bike a ride to Las Cruces, NM tomorrow. It's just a four hour ride and through interesting landscapes.
Happy Memorial Day.
