“This thing is robust!” was Pedro’s scream trying to burst Blu out of his cage in the animation movie, Rio. Pedro’s attitude cracked me up. The movie is about the adventures of Blu – a rare, domesticated bird that couldn’t fly. Good picture.
The movie reminded me that there are times we set goals based on our myopic view of life. Hence, the universe has a way of replacing our small dreams with bigger and much better ones. Blu was comfortable in his cozy cage in Minnesota and had no clue that he was designed to thrive in the wild jungles of Brazil. A much better existence!
Challenges push us out of our comfort zone and open up aspects to life that we couldn’t have seen otherwise. At first, Blu was convinced that going to Rio was a bad idea. However, it turned out to be the best decision ever.
Trust life’s processes! At last, Blu saw the profit in life’s roller coaster ride. You may not see it now, but those challenges bear good gifts. Just wait. You’ll see.
