I received this image on a newsletter from the smart savvy team at the Clarion Group. It’s quite provocative and inspiring on so many levels. Of course, I want to be the frog!!! I often get to be the frog leaping over the community of turtles. The truth is, I am a turtle too. In fact, I would venture to declare that it is my turtle time when I am deep inside, protected and connected to the muddy earth that has the frog in me be able to fly so freely. Unfortunately, life sometimes has a way of forcing me into my shell. Not always comfortable. Always beneficial.
Many of us have aspired only to be frogs and been rewarded quite handsomely for our frog like natures. Trouble is without the turtle influence it’s easy to end up burned out or overwhelmed. How about we extol both the frog, the turtle and the transition between?
