Today on my hot, humid, sticky run, I happened upon a little snail.
That little snail put some big thoughts in my head.
He was just sliding along, slowly but surely, confident of his destination and not worried about how long it was going to take to get there. He was just moving and doing his best to get somewhere.
Wow. What an inspirational little snail.
He reminded me of one of my favorite Walt Disney quotes:
“Around here, however, we don’t look backward for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
This snail wasn’t looking backwards. He was just going, moving toward a better tomorrow.
Let’s all “move forward” every day, my friends. It’s hard–we have our doubts, we have our past failures in our back pockets, and we want what we want now. It’s hard to wait.
Just move forward each and every day, and, maybe someday, it will lead you down a new path better than you ever imagined.
