I love proverbs! I think of them as shorthand advice – whispers in the ear that provide guidance. They help me know what to do when I think I don’t know what to do. When I’m rushing through the world, multitasking, five errands to do and fifteen minutes to do them, feeling frantic, I think “Whoa girl! A four legged dog only goes one way.”
That proverb helps me slow down, focus on one thing and a time – and I’m able to accomplish something (maybe not all five errands, but that was unreasonable in the first place). Just a quick, quiet whisper in my ear.
On this blog, I’ll share some of my favorite proverbs, and I invite others to do the same.
