I thought it would be fun to look for inspiration from ants…it’s like being a kid, all over again : ) Though there’s a lot already out there on this, here are my three cents worth.
Ants stay on course. Pretty much no matter what, ants find their way around obstacles, sometimes really big ones! I, on the other hand, am quite easily distracted or discouraged – but like the ant, all I have to do is find my path again and keep on going : )
Ants do their job…as far as I can tell. This is not some brilliant idea, but there is something to be said for just doing your job. Solid, reliable consistency: I like the sound of that.
“Go to the ant you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.” – Proverbs 6:6-8
Ants are awesome explorers. Whether its exploring in physical places, or thoughts, or in writing, I love the possibility that exploration holds!
“Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.” – E.L. Doctorow
