Kids who run the wrong direction

Kids who run the wrong direction


When a kid runs to third base instead of first, it is funny to those watching, but to the runner it is a mad dash for what appears to be safety. Those comic missteps translate into solid learning experiences for life.

We frequently find ourselves running blindly for what appears to be the right destination.

Yes, others may laugh at us. Yes, we may be tagged out because of our blunder, but we have learned something. We have discovered the right direction.

Today forgive yourself for a time when you ran in the wrong direction or share a humorous story with someone about a misstep that you made. Laughing at yourself is very healthy and can point your energy in a very positive direction.
