Life Lessons I Learned from Squirrels

Life consists of periods of abundance, and periods of want.   Enjoy the former.   Plan for the latter.

A rolling stone gathers no moss (and never gets eaten).   Never linger in any given place too long.   Whatever you do, keep moving.

When courting your soul-mate,  climb the highest object you can find and scream your love for them, for all the world to hear.

Don’t work hard:  work smart.   Like when you’re destroying a house:  don’t just chew anywhere, but rather focus on the electrical wiring and structural wooden beams.

Life is like a nut.  Sometimes the best things are difficult to obtain, but if you keep working at it, you’ll break through the hard shell and it will pay off in the end.

Never be afraid to break the rules.   Just because that food in the bird-feeder is for birds, there is nothing that says you can’t eat it too.

It’s okay to be vain about your appearance.   If it weren’t for your bushy tail, you’d just be a rat.

If something annoys you, don’t bottle up your feelings.   Clearly express your anger, and don’t stop until the problem goes away.

Don’t be afraid to confront challenges,  even if they’re 100 times your size.   But just make sure you have an exit strategy, where you can retreat to safer ground.
