"True Heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost." - Arthur Ashe Reid
Today at the barn 🐄I learned big, giant, huge lessons. I have been learning these lessons for months now...on how to live💃🏼. And love❤️️. On how to let go and how to handle oneself when faced with challenges😳. Today, the daughters favourite sheep🐏 died (Mary, the one who had a little lamb). And man did she love that sheep. Like I love Bosco kinda love💞. And she missed school, but as barn boss said "now she knows what it's going to be like to truly have this life." Yup. You give and you give. You stay up all night🌙 with these animals that you love. You spend hundreds, even thousands💸 trying to save them. And yet, still, you lose them⚰️. This applies to cows, sheep, horses, dogs...all the animals in our lives. And so, she was learning to let go💔. After work, I got to apply a massive lesson that Theo (barn boss) himself taught me. How to handle a shitty situation. (How to deal with a friend screwing you over so badly...it feels like you're failing at life over and over. Trusting people, only to find out they never cared enough to take their responsibilities and handle their choices. Instead, it's all on me for "being too trusting". I'll be that person 1000 times before I'll ever be the guy you can't rely on...) Anyways, you can scream😡 and freak out...or you can determine your karma based on how you choose to react. Year ago me would have had a hay day (pardon the pun). Like epic friendship ending, crush them with my words kinda stuff. But today, I chose love💚. I chose to breathe. I chose to adult up, take the hit, and keep moving forward. Theo taught me that. He taught me that over and over with his endless patience and understanding. And that's how a businessman gets things done. That's how they continue to thrive. And how their business becomes a passion...or rather, how a passion becomes a business. A good one. With a solid name and the guts to do this crazy life for forever...thank you dairy barn🐮. Another win for our souls. 💜🔮The Universe and Karma...will take care of the rest.
