There is a Finch with a beak like a woodpecker in the Galapagos. He is resourceful and determined. He doesn’t have the tongue of other woodpeckers to grab the grub so he breaks up a twig and uses it like a fork to grab it in the branches to take it out. I see determination. He can look past the challenge and the struggle. He quickly finds a way. He realizes his limitations and is resourceful.
This finch makes me think what does a determined person look like? Someone with goals and goes for them. Someone with good habits, habits as small as keeping their commitments. Someone with a strong character who enjoys what life throws at them no matter what. Someone who does it with a smile. That’s what I would like to be. And I start it with making small changes so that I can enjoy what life throws at me everyday.
