A chicken “ain’t no” eagle.
Chickens are always looking down, cackling, while pecking around on the ground eating whatever they can find. It always amazed me that chickens can cackle and stuff their beaks at the same time! When they’re out of chicken feed, they move on to dirt and bugs. They’ll even eat their own—well you get the picture.
What does it mean to thrive or flourish in life? In a world where everything seems to be overanalyzed and word-smithed through a lens of political correctness or cultural relevance, is it OK to prosper? The word “thrive” implies moving beyond mere survival and demonstrating growth, positive development, advancement, and success. These thoughts and concepts often drift through our minds right before we cross the threshold into a new year.
Our greatest power struggles came when our kids had an iPad or one of our iPhones. Nothing else came close.
If you’re a parent, you know what causes “crazy” in your kids. Usually—at least for us—they’re either “hangry” (when hunger turns angry) or tired.
Screens make hungry and tired behavior look sane.
