Today Blue Cat was looking for one of his creator’s old cookbooks so he could make popcorn truffles for Family Home Evening snack. He was in a real hurry, but he didn’t find the cookbook. He did, however, discover something about life in general…
What Blue Cat discovered is that sometimes what you’re doing becomes more important than the goal, and that it never pays to be in too much of a hurry.
After a while he could have gotten frustrated, but the search became even more interesting than the cookbook.
Although sometimes life can get a little dangerous…
But he discovered hidden treasures…
… and he got reacquainted with some long lost friends.
In the end, he found something just as good as popcorn truffles.
So remember what Blue Cat learned today – life is a journey, not a race. So take time to enjoy the journey, and don’t be so focused that you miss the interesting sidelights that are all around you. And remember that sometimes you need to keep the bigger vision in mind and improvise on how to measure success.
At least that’s what Blue Cat thinks!
