Thought for the day…

A disabled child was shown a sink full of green tomatoes and one red apple. Which would you rather be, his mother asked, the green tomatoes or the red apple? The water, he replied.

There’s always a third option. You don’t have to choose from the options imposed on you, create a choice for yourself.

Thanks to Nicky Kriel for sharing this quote with me. It came from a winning speech at the Toastmasters International Convention a few years ago.
