The Best Intentions

November 5, 2009

One of my favorite radio spots to listen to is Michael Josephson’s “Character Counts”.  It’s always a great reminder that we need to continuously evaluate how we are living.  Yesterday he started with the following story:

“Five birds are sitting on a telephone wire. Two decide to fly south. How many are left? Most people would say three. Actually, all five are left. You see, deciding to fly isn’t the same as doing it.”

I thought, “Wow, how true is that?”  It’s very humbling to stop and realize that even though you may have wonderful intentions, unless you actually take action, it really means nothing.   As we enter this holiday season, I hope that not only will you stop and think of all the things you are thankful for, but take the time to thank those around you that have helped you get to where you are today and for being a blessing in your life.

Warmest Regards,
