“more happiness and joy, love and friendships,
kindness and compassion than many animals receive in a lifetime”
When was the last time you found yourself, “caught in an endless, boundlessly happy frolic”? If you’re still trying to remember … it’s been too long! About a month or so ago, our Capra Team happened upon this Huff Post article from June.
At Capra (Italian for Goat), we tend to believe we’re privy to all things … goat. But it appears, Frostie the Goat alluded us. (However, we can’t say the same about a Frosty with fries… .) When a GIF of this effervescent kid appeared across our screens with the unfettered gait & gallop of the happiest creature around in spite of his handicap, we swooned.
More, we felt inspired. To reiterate the words from Edgar’s Mission, “the nonprofit farm animal sanctuary that rescued Frostie,”:
“… Frostie’s lesson to me has been this,
to seize every minute of [your] life.”
Life is tough. No matter the decisions we make–good or bad–nor the people we surround ourselves with–good or bad–life will always be tough. Of course we stave-off much difficulty when we opt for the good choices. But, even this leaves no guarantees. So start today. Start now. Find the frolic. Find the very special frolic in your life–in your day–that no one can take away. That no one can steal or touch or tarnish. And if you cannot, create. Create that frolic. If Frostie can do it, so can we all.
Thank you for being a Wayfinder, Frostie.
And thank you for helping to show us the way!
