I work with someone who is toxic and negative; it’s hard to take.
Most days, I manage to not let the behavior and snarkiness get me down but there are just as many moments when I feel myself getting overwhelmed. It’s in those times that I feel the negativity seeping in and my joy slipping away. And I don’t like it. Don’t like it one bit.
And then, I read this quote and laughed out loud. And as I read it again, I knew you had to see it too.
Because, as he says, we all know someone like this.
“Remember — Crows can’t hang with eagles. The eagle has pests, one of which is the crow. He’s always squawking, always causing the eagle trouble. The truth is we all have a few crows in our life. When the eagle takes off, often a crow will come up right behind & start to pester, aggravate & annoy. You are an eagle, made in the image of God. Turkeys, chickens & crows cannot live at the altitude for which you were designed to soar. Be an eagle … rise up & above and leave them behind.” ~Joel Osteen
I wish you a happy & peck-free day!
