Turtle Logic

My gift from nature this past weekend was “meeting” a turtle on my morning walking route. The encounter was a reminder that whatever our destination or goal, slow and steady can still win the race.

After I passed the creature I began to worry that the cars zooming down this neighborhood road might crush it.

But when I looped back around to check, I saw that the turtle had somehow scurried out of harm’s way and found safety alongside a curb – providing another nugget of wisdom: that even as we persist, it’s vitally important to practice self-care.

I’m sure that turtle will get wherever he or she was headed, and the important thing will be doing so as whole and strong as possible.

May you go, be and do the same.

Meaningful lessons can be found anywhere, in any form – even during a morning encounter with a turtle. – Stacy Hawkins Adams
