Today I watched a baby bird struggling to flap its wings slowly evaluating each leap before it rapidly flapped its wings and made the jump to the next tray of my birdfeeder.

Yesterday I watched a hungry chipmunk devour food from the same birdfeeder. This food contains hot pepper meant to deter squirrels and chipmunks. He stuffed his cheeks so large they were the size of his head and proudly ate every crumb of food in the tray.

There are two kinds of struggles here. The struggle of starting and learning. Adventuring into a new world. Then there are the struggles you overcome. It stings because it’s hot and uncomfortable. With a mindset of bring it on you fight through and overcome.

I can relate to that baby bird and the stubborn chipmunk. Mirroring both of their struggles in my life right now.
