“How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” Sounds logical right? Sure, in theory, if we were able to apply this to every aspect of our lives how much easier things would be. I was sitting in an impromptu “therapy” session with my co-worker this morning when she said to me, “You can’t eat an elephant whole.” My first thought was; “Well who would want to eat an elephant at all?” But as we continued to talk things began to make sense. We are always looking at the “BIG” picture, seeing things as a whole as opposed to bits and pieces. We do that and become overwhelmed with all that is on our plate and its difficult to stomach it all. So the question comes, well how do you eat an elephant? That’s easy, one bite at a time. Its so easy to want things right away, which is why we are the microwaveable generation. No time to wait, everything has to be done fast. The notion of eating an elephant helped me realize that not all things are meant to be devoured whole, but bit by bit. Our session ended with a pep talk.
