Today’s Inspiration Thought

Posted on June 5, 2010


Think about the humble bumblebee. There’s a story that says the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly. It’s too fat and hairy for its little wings to get it up off the ground. The laws of aerodynamics say a bumblebee’s flight is impossible.

And, yet, despite being told what it can’t do, the bumblebee does fly. It reaches beyond its limitations, and it soars.

You are like that bumblebee. You are fat and hairy. You have spindly little legs and giant, black eyes. Just like the bumblebee, no one believes you can do it. And yet, somehow you can fly.

Well, wait, no. I guess you can’t fly.

But, like the bumblebee, you can convert pollen into delicious honey … You can’t really do that either. You make a buzzing sound, maybe? I don’t know. You gotta meet me halfway on something here.


Today’s Inspirational Thought

Inside every soap bubble, there is an entire rainbow. And, at the end of every rainbow, there is a pot of gold.

And, in every pot of gold there is one Canadian penny. And, on every Canadian penny there is a maple leaf. And, within every maple leaf, there is a million years of evolution.

And, in a million years, there has never been anyone who enjoyed Cool Ranch Doritos as much as me. And, in every serving of Cool Ranch Doritos, there is 4% of your recommended daily fiber. And, in every fiber of her being, my wife hates the smell of Doritos on my breath.

And, in every breath, there is life. And, in every life, some rain must fall. And, every fall, we carve pumpkins. And, inside every pumpkin, there are seeds for more pumpkins. Which I always pretend are the pumpkin’s brains.

It really makes you think.
