"The race is not to the swift or the strong but to those who endure to the end."
Last week while golfing at Three Lake Public Golf Course, my friends and I enjoyed watching this turtle cross the 13th fairway. We're assuming he was moving from one lake to another across the course.
He was very determined not to let us impede his progress. Every time I would get in front of him to take a picture, he would turn and go another direction. As I would move again, he would change directions again. We were both, literally, going in circles. I wonder if turtles get dizzy?
I finally ended up taking a picture of him from behind as he moved away and got back on track to wherever he was headed before we came along. Life is like that sometimes, isn't it? We get distracted or interrupted in our quests and we get stalled or have to take a detour as roadblocks arise. Eventually, though, we can get back on track (or find a new direction) and start moving forward again in our intended direction.
I also learned turtles can move faster than you think. Anytime I got near him (or maybe a her) he would speed up his gait. Maybe we can take another lesson from that turtle. When we get interrupted and stalled or sent in circles, we must refocus and move on with renewed enthusiasm.
