Can An Elephant Walk Backwards?

Posted: January 4, 2012 in Miscellaneous

A recent gift from a coworker who visited India was this elephant figurine-thing. A fine hand painted bit of art…

But when I look at it, I don’t see elephants; I see myself.

My past 16 year journey has been as these elephants are walking here; right to left they’ve gone from small/fit to large/fat.

My current mission is to make this elephant (me) walk backwards so as to move forward.

    When we see ourselves walking backwards, we can turn it around!
    And do the Baby Elephant Walk to a whole new – and lively – tune!
    And looks at all of us who will be right there walking with ya!
    Holding each other’s tails! (so to speak) as we go through the mazes!

  2. Yes, Elephant’s United!

    I’m pretty sure I’ve seen those elephants at the circus walk backwards and even in circles!

  4. Circles, I have been walking in circles for too long. So true, but this elephant needs to go backwards.

  5. I see that happening Patrick – but you have to move forward in a healthy & consistent way each day or each or each micro goal as you put it this morn!

  6. Agreed! Huh, Micro Elephant; be a cool name for a rock band – a tribute band to Thin Lizzy perhaps

    I love that little statue it is so cool. Anything is possible with hard work and determination. I think you are doing a great job so far and I am happy I found your blog.

  8. And I am happy you found me 🙂
