The Stag and his Glorious Crown

The Stag and his Glorious Crown

There once was a mighty stag who roamed the forest. He was a mighty beast. A beautiful beast. A glorious beast. Atop his head was a glorious crown of antlers that he was very proud of.



One day while walking, he came across a stream and drank from it to quench his thirst. As he was leaning over to drink, he noticed his glorious reflection of his crown of antlers. He had never noticed them before.

He proclaimed to himself, “what a glorious crown I possess. Look how beautiful this is! It is magnificent! I am truly a magnificent beast who and must be very blessed.”



It was at that moment that he leaned over to eat when he noticed his feeble little legs that he had.

He thought to himself, “what an injustice, to have such a beautiful crown on my head and these feeble little legs!”.

Suddenly, he could sense that nearby there was a tiger. He stood quiet and if frozen, perfectly still.





Then suddenly, he knew the tiger was coming, and he ran. And he ran, and he ran. His feeble little legs were carrying him away from the tiger. Until one moment, in the thick forest, where his antlers got him stuck.

The tiger caught him and as the life was leaving his body, he thought to himself, “what a shame. These feeble little legs of mine could have helped me escape and live if it weren’t for this glorious crown that I wear.”

The point of this story is that there is stuff in our lives that we wish was better. Maybe for the wrong reason. Sometime when we hope for things to be better than they are, we forget how good they really are. How good you have it.

The fact that you can get up every morning and can start your day with a re-set, because every day is a reset, because you can start over.

So, the next time you think “I don’t have it so good”, look at the parts where you do so you don’t get trapped.
