Life of a Fish

Recently as I was traveling to New York City from Charlotte, NC the inevitable thought of “being a big fish in a small pond vs. being a small fish in a big pond” entered my mind (as I’m sure it does with many people traveling to NYC). As I pondered this on the drive and flight, another thought came to me: it’s not about being a big or small fish in a big or small pond. It’s about being a REAL fish in a REAL pond. Feeling REAL today?


  1. I have also found that it’s not really about relative size (big to small or vice-versa) – but about REAL impact. Whether one’s sphere of influence is the size of a tennis ball or the size of the earth itself, it all comes down to one simple question: “Am I making an impact within my world?” Librarians, teachers, doctors, parents, friends – all can make an enormous impact daily. Whether that impact is felt in Charlotte or New York City is irrelevent. So, keep on keepin’ on, small fish!
