One sunny afternoon I was seated close to my window just thinking things over and I noticed that for 10mins straight there was this bird that kept flying from the top of the fence to my window sill, it will perch on the ground for a second to pick something and fly back to my window sill to eat what it picked and fly back to the fence to scout.
I noticed it never spent more than 2sec on the ground, it kept flying from one height to the other and not really walking around on the ground.
Now I know you will be wondering why I have decided to inflict this pain called boredom on you but this little friend of mine actually thought me what i have been trying so hard to understand just within 10mins.
Why associate with a mediocre when you have wings to fly that was just what the little bird taught me, the little bird found it very hard to dwell on a low pedestal and it did not allow any force to subject it to do so.
We all know how big chicken wings are but the longest flight ever recorded for a chicken was just for 13seconds (you can google that)
I am going to be talking about some species of birds and relate them to life issues.
1.) Ostrich: This is a big bird, actually the biggest bird with huge wings, it’s known to run at an estimated speed of 45mph (72km/h) in a short burst and that was said to have been faster than a race horse (www.wiki.answers.com/Q/what_is_the_maximum_speed_on_land_of_an_ostrich) but with all these amazing qualities and attributes the ostrich remains a flight less bird.
We do have a good percentage of people who are like the ostrich, they posses all the qualities you can ever imagine but they don’t have a single idea of the fact that they can fly, so all they do is run around and they greatly limit themselves to the ground when their are actually heights to conquer.
2.) Chickens: As I said earlier the longest flight ever recorded for a chicken was 13sec, now that leaves us with the fact that chickens actually know they can fly but they have never done past 13sec and you only see a chicken fly when there is trouble, so they are comfortable walking around.
Those in the chicken category actually know they can do better but they readily look for a comfort zone and stay there, they only get to move when trouble jolts them or they are confronted by a great responsibility like getting married, paying school fees…..etc
3.) Pigeons: Very cute birds if you ask me they do fly but are so eager to be on the ground and just walk around to be fed by humans
People in this category actually do fly but don’t like working to get anything they want, so they readily stoop low just to get a morsel.
And Finally we have the Great EAGLE
I am not going to bore you with details about the eagle because we all have heard a whole lot about the eagle and how we can relate its qualities to our general lifestyle.
We all really need to check ourselves and know which category we belong to so we can make amends.
It’s about 3am now and nature is really playing it’s tune in my ears, so I have to go and sleep so I can wake up early to prepare for the day.
Do have a great weekend
