You may have heard the story, and I’m no doubt mixing it up a bit, about how geese fly in formation – with different geese taking the lead or most wind resistant spot to move the flock forward. They share leadership.


This way all the geese help each other succeed.


Also that the geese call out to each other constantly as encouragement.


I’ve also heard that if one goose is tired or needs to land, another goose goes with so that they are safer and can help each other get back to the flock.


Pretty impressive friendships I’d say.


It’s also how they stay alive and thrive.


George Matthew Adams, “Nothing in this world appeases loneliness as does a flock of friends! You can select them at random, write to one, dine with one, visit one, or take your problems to one. There is always a least one who will understand, inspire, and give you the lift you may need at the time. Fortify yourself with a flock of friends!”


I love that saying – a flock of friends – like a flock of geese, each helping each other succeed.


Can you honk out some encouragement to a friend today? Go ahead and fly right!


Remember, you create your day by the way you think. Make it magnificent!


Blessings, Shawna
