Did you know...?
This morning my youngest told me something amazing. "Did you know that a turtle has been alive since dinosaur times?!" I gently corrected her, saying that while as a species turtles have existed since prehistoric times, individual turtles don't last quite that long - despite never dying of old age. If they did, the world would be overrun with turtles! I'm no expert, but I do appreciate that their longevity may be due to the following attributes: possessing only what you can carry, having a natural curiosity along with a hard shell, staying grounded and close to home, retreating from danger, chewing food well, living near the water, plentiful naps, and of course, taking life nice and slow. Acting like you have all the time in the world doesn't have to mean you're not going anywhere, as long as you keep moving forward. And just maybe, you'll be around a while to enjoy the life you're leading.
