It's not going to jump into your mouth
I have been overwhelmed by the amount of “stuff” I need to be doing, want to be doing, or think I should be doing. I have a pretty good routine but then I get bored and get off the routine and chase nothing new for a while.
This time of year the robins start coming back into our garden and I am reminded perennially of their simple process.
They love to study the situation, they look from the trees and then walk along the surface of the lawn. They turn their head and listen for the worms moving below. And then just in time, they snap the food up and move on to the next situation.
I feel like that robin. Always looking and then snapping up the food when you hear it moving up to the surface.
What I am also reminded of by these happy birds is just as clear;
don’t dig a 10 foot hole looking for the worm,
don’t expect it to jump up into your mouth.
