“Its better to be a lion for a day than a sheep forever.”
I recently read this amazing italian quote and I completely disagreed with it.
We spend our lives afraid of failure and moving on. Why? Because we, as human beings, as intelligent as we are, do not like change. Unlike animals in the wild, we have spent our lives working on ways to control change and to make it happen when it only benefits us.
This has resulted in many ecological problems and other stuff which you probably have already heard of.
Sheep follow the herd. They do not have a mind of their own and just blend in with the crowd. If lets say a lion comes around to “borrow” one of the sheep from the grazing herd for lunch, the owner will not notice. Unless he happens to have an obssesive compulsive disorder and has to count his 6 billion sheep everyday.(Then the lion should maybe find a different lunchmate)
Then we have the lion,big and strong. King of the jungle and feared everywhere. Because of this, lions can only be friends with other lions, mainly of the opposite sex,since they don’t see them as a threat. They can’t befriend anything else as they might end up taking it out for lunch.
I know, you are probably thinking,”ok, this girl has issues,” but bare with me for a few more paragraphs. There is a method to my madness.
A lion, or a sheep? Which do i recommend? None seem agreeable. Well I will tell you what I am..I am a lion which is a vegetarian. I am strong and the Queen of my world, in all its chaotic hustle.
other things invented.
And you? You are whatever you want to be? No, label can define you. A freak of nature some may call you, but thats just asshole for indivudual.
A cat that can play the guitar, or one which can swim? You choose your own identity, not someone else.:-)
The day someone can find one word to describe you then know that you have lost thats flare that makes you you.
