Thursday AM I stood and watched an Eagle for awhile in a tree. 1 & 1/2hrs later I was driving towards that same location and had hopes to still see it in the tree. INSTEAD I got something better. Out of my peripheral vision I saw something huge start to move. It was the Eagle. It was on the ground and taking flight. I flew next to my car, gaining speed and height until it was ahead of me and flew into the trees again. .
I was in awe. The massive power and beauty I witness. All I could do was tell my boys to look out the window to see it. I stopped but didn’t want to take my eyes off to even look for my phone to get a photo.
This memory keeps revisiting me and IRONICALLY I had a timeline memory post pop up in my newsfeed this morning that was quite fitting. It was an Eagle post. In it I shared this bit of advice (which is such a great reminder) and felt the need to share it again today:
In nature a crow will follow an eagle and ‘annoy it’ and bother it in flight. That is relatable to ourselves in life right? We have someone who gets under our skin–someone who intentionally bothers/upset us.
Well it’s time to be the eagle. To be smarter than that crow. The eagle can fly at heights a crow can’t. So when the eagle has had enough it doesn’t bother ‘fighting’ the crow. The eagle simply starts to fly higher and higher. Becoming one above that crow!
We need to stand tall…stand higher…stand stronger…stand wiser than those people who try to get you down!! Never let them win. Outsmart them.
Believing in yourself is key!! Standing up for yourself is key!! Be the eagle!!
