I see Bug in a Rug syndrome all about me, everywhere I look.
I love this little slice of wisdom. It comes from a quality tune on a Headz (Mowax) album… but could have originated anywhere. I cannot find the track anywhere, don’t even know it’s name, and my brother stole my copy years ago, so here it is roughly paraphrased:
Once there was a Bug that lived in the most beautiful Persian Rug
But he didn’t know it
All about him were his problems and he was miserable
One day he climbed up to the highest point on the rug and looked down
For there, stretching out below him was the most beautiful Persian Rug
What he thought were his problems were in fact the thick pile, exquisite weaving, intricate patterns and thick sumptuous tassels…
He cheered right up and realised life was beautiful even with it’s problems… which only make it all the more rich and vibrant
Take a moment to step back and appreciate your own beautiful Persian Rug whenever you can, from even a little distance or a slightly different perspective it can be taken in fully. It also makes more sense as a whole, looks more beautiful… and feels more manageable!
Get Out and Do Look Back
