I went to make fresh mint tea this morning. I got the mint out of the fridge and began picking the leaves for the tea pot. Surprisingly a little green frog fell out of the bunch of mint. As I looked at his lifeless body, I felt quite devastated that this poor little frog had come to its end in my fridge in the bunch of mint.
I began planning where I could lay him rest. A glimmer of life caught my eye, his arm moved. I turned him over, got some water and took him out to my pot plant garden. I put some water on the garden and went to place him down. He became quite alive. Excited at the thought he had been reborn or at least revived, I put him down in the garden where he promptly decided to get out of the pot and go somewhere else.
It got me thinking about his situation:
- Did the frog choose to go into the mint paddock?
- Did the frog accidently get caught in the mint being picked?
- Did the frog choose his circumstances and could he choose to get out of them?
Sometimes we choose the circumstances we find ourselves in life. Sometimes life chooses the circumstances we find ourselves in. Sometimes we need a new perspective to get out of both.
Circumstances where we might feel trapped, shut down or tired, are times for reflection about:
- who we are
- why we are here
- what do we need to do
It about quietly taking the time to absorb those lessons so that we learn and grow, to be who we really are and when your ready, a new perspective will help guide you out of the cold. Thank you to the little green frog for your wisdom and perspective this morning.
Enjoy Tracy xx
