Sunday Scribbings: Fortune Cookie
As I write this Sunday Scribbings post I am sitting on the ground leaning against a tree in the middle of a stand of young Kauri trees and Mamaku ferns. The Tuis have returned for the start of the breeding season and are calling and chasing each other all around me while Kaka squawk and Tieke alarm call in the distance. Every pore of my body has registered the change in the seasons. I am in tune with the birds and the young growth on the shrubs brushing up against me.
My fortune cookie would say something like "do what you know makes you happy, not what is easy". for doing what is easy may lead to some kind of initial, surface gratification, but pursuing a greater goal, no matter how much it scares me, will always lead to the greater reward of genuine satisfaction.
