In General Be Like the crows Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I remember last year waiting for my Aikido class to begin outside a sports centre, I noticed the recent heavy rain and winds had blown the branches from the trees.
I noticed a pair of crows collecting twigs and sticks to rebuild their nest, which had been damaged.
They struggled against the strong winds and rain, as I waited in my car, I noticed time and time again they were blown around, but they continued their efforts.

I wondered to myself how long would we struggle, in a similar situation, would we have the ability and fortitude to continue, or would we simply give up.
Maybe we would find someone to complain to and have a good moan about how hard life is, maybe we would ‘pass the buck' and blame everyone else for our struggles.

We all face struggles in our lives, and this is also reflected in our training, good times and bad times, ups and downs.

Just like the crows I'll continue one stick at a time……..

Nice entry, nice comments. BTW my husband is into serious reading so we will look for the Camus book. I don't exactly look for challenge in my life, but it often finds me, so I appreciate the inspirational note from Nature you've given us.

Hi Chris, I had a few bad experiences in my life and was very down, but learned that for every bad thing a better one will happen to you. Always continue like the crows, you must close the door and open a new one, just open your eyes and search it. The bad experiences make you to become strong to mature, they are necessary in ones life.

You should read Camus's Myth of Sisyphus.
