Episode 27 – Alpacas – a metaphor for life

SHOW NOTES

A summer light-read for you. Here are my musings on some things alpacas have taught me over the last 12 years.

Millie, Megan and Mair

What have I learned?

Millie – to lead, you don’t always have to know where you are going. Sometimes it is just enough to step up and be the leader that you are.

Megan – make good friends, you are going to need them, and they will need you. There is only one Megan; there is only one you

Mair – As important as it is, don’t always put food (or your feet) first. Know what is important and stick to it.

I didn’t know that I had a shepherd in me until we had alpacas – what do you not know that is in there waiting to be expressed?

The journey continues by keeping your eyes and ears open; growing relationships; and having the posture of always learning.

Alpacas may not be your metaphor for life but they certainly are mine and maybe I have made you think enough to find your own metaphor for your journey through life. And maybe it is alpacas…

  1. Love the metaphors! This is not intended to be a rant but it’s interesting to me, that you as a shepherd can see the damage that can occur when mother and child are separated, yet most of society thinks giving a child away is ok and will go without consequence.

    Ok, so that was a very long sentence 🙂

    Also agree of our uniqueness, and it should be embraced.
    And…on a final note related to another metaphor, I am proud and honoured to call you my very good friend <3

    1. To clarify, I know you were speaking of your alpacas re: mother and child
      Me being adopted and witnessing what I do, it’s uncanny to me that humans don’t have your understanding of the importance of mother/child bonding. It’s nature.
      It’s how we continue to evolve.
