While on a recent visit to an Oregon coastal town I came upon this unusual sight as I was out walking to the beach.
There, high in a bush, was a crab. It was not alive, but it looked real.
I was puzzled at how it had gotten there but I never did find out, so I imagined the positive and decided it must have went on an adventure one day, took a challenge from a seagull to climb a tree and ended up not being able to get back down.
The positive part is that it was adventurous, it left it’s comfort zone and took a chance, many of us don’t do that out of fear or complacity, and even though perhaps the crab didn’t end up with the happy ending he’d hoped for, at least he won at his life’s challenge and
So many of us are stuck in our Comfort Zones. We settle for a life that’s ” good enough” but not really ideal. We want to break free, take risks, pursue opportunities, try new things, but it’s hard to find a way out because we are comfortable where we are and there’s not really a need to change.
