The Elephant and the Ant


So there is an elephant and an ant.  When a fly comes along and lands on the elephant, he doesn’t notice, nor does he care.  The fly is so little it doesn’t matter to the elephant because he’s bigger than the fly.  It doesn’t affect how he feels and it doesn’t affect his day at all.  The fly then leaves the elephant and makes his way over to the ant.  This time when the fly lands on the ant it’s a really big deal!  It really affects the ant.  The ant is not larger than the fly.  He notices the fly, he feels the fly, and it’s probably greatly affecting his day.

So what you have to do is decide who you want to be.  Are you going to be the elephant or the ant?  That’s completely up to you.  It’s not always easy to be the elephant and not be bothered by the fly.  But you are the one that controls if you want to be.  And honestly, for me,this story is enough of a reminder for me to become the elephant again.
