A young boy and a man were driving through the countryside they stopped at an old farm to ask for directions.

While the man and farmer were talking the young boy came running to his father who told him there was a eagle in the chicken coup. Not believing him, the man continued talking with the farmer.

Again the boy returned and said, “Dad, you have to come see this eagle.” The father told his son that it couldn’t be an eagle and began to apologize to the farmer for the interruption.

The farmer stopped him, and said, “It’s okay. There is an eagle in there."

In disbelief the man walked over to the fence where his son stood pointing. There he saw a bald eagle walking around on the ground pecking for food in the dirt. The man could not believe it. He turned to the farmer and asked, “How did this happen?”

The farmer laughed and said he found the eagle when it was a baby. It had fallen out of its nest in a storm and was injured. He brought it home, weened it back to health and put it with the chickens because it didn’t know how to fly.

Time passed and the eagle grew but never learned how to fly. In fact, it never seemed like it wanted to. It was happy to be with the chickens, eating seeds and digging for worms.

The father was absolutely right.

An eagle had no business walking around on the ground digging for worms. Eagles are meant to soar.

If you put an eagle with a group of chickens, sooner or later, it will act like a chicken.

How do the people closest to you make you feel?

Do they want you to be a chicken or do they want you to be an eagle?

Sometimes I feel the opposite. I feel I am a chicken around eagles. I am having false hopes that I can fly like them but the truth is I can't. No matter how many times I try. Chickens can't fly. Being around eagles for so long can give you false hopes. I think this is a wonderful post though, it's really inspiring even if it gave me a humble realization.

Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with being a chicken. People always have the need to be the biggest and the strongest. It makes the smaller ones feel something is wrong with them. This is not true. We are all created with a purpose. You should never underestimate yours. There's a lot to be done in places where only you can fit. You are created to contribute.
