I resonate strongly with this paragraph: "YOU are enough as you are. You don’t need to be big to dream big. You don’t need to get bigger in size to accomplish bigger things. You may be a frog, ordinary and common. Put the extra in the common and be a frog in extraordinary and uncommon ways. Dare extraordinary things. Become extraordinary. YOU are more than enough to get a head start on that while being a frog. Settle into your size and uniqueness. You have capabilities for what you are built by nature to dare and accomplish. Neither is a limitation to success if you study to know how to work with what you have."

What I love about this post, besides the amazing writing, is the reminder that we are enough. Every time we seek to be something different, we tend to always fail. Or certainly, at minimum, provoke suffering. It’s been said by the ancient sages time and time again—to know thyself well is the noblest of pursuits. It IS the work of a lifetime—but no one can know another (not even frogs and elephants) better than they can know themselves. Trouble is, it’s becoming lost wisdom. So thank you Tomi for the reminder in such an elegant and enlightening way. When I hear the frogs this spring around our ponds, I’ll bless them to stay frogs and forget about the elephants.
