New T-shirt (Rhino vs Unicorn)
Tuesday, July 05, 2011
A guy at work has really cool, really interesting t-shirts. Sometimes, I have to make him stand still for a few min. until I figure it out. LOL He had this one on one day and I loved it!
I'm not sure how well the image will show up but it's a Rhino running on a treadmill dreaming of being a unicorn. When I first saw it, I loved it. I NEVER buy t-shirts but I had to have this one. I wore it a couple of times and enjoyed the idea of being a work in progress.
Then one morning, as I put on the shirt, a little voice inside said, "Should a Rhino made in the image that God intended really be striving to be a Unicorn, which is never going to happen or should the Rhino be striving to be a really fabulous Rhino?" It took my breath away. I'm trying to be something that I'm never going to be. I want to strive to be a really fabulous me, not a copy of "Sparkfriend" (name withheld to protect the innocent). That is what I should be working toward.
What do YOU think? Should the rhino be striving to be a unicorn? How do you think about your work in progress? Is the rhino shooting for the stars or lying to him/herself?
