Follow The Leader

This blog is brought to you every weekday since 2011! Consider becoming a supporter here with a special “What’s good about today?” post each day!

This is Peanut Butter Brickle.  Who do you look to for advice?  I am a bit booked in the advice area.  Fruitycake has reserved all of my appointments for the foreseeable future.

I sure did love Digby.  I still love Digby.  But I never really realized how independent he truly was.  He needed me, but he also had his own ideas.  We fought sometimes.  At least twice per year, and usually, over dinner.

But Fruitycake is different.  For some reason, he looks to me for everything.  He listens to me.  But he finds it hard to trust the persons.  No matter how much I tell him that he can trust them, he only trusts me.  I am hoping that soon, he will trust me when I tell him to trust the persons.

Isn’t it hard to trust others?  I heard someone say one time that you can only trust yourself.  And I don’t even know if that is true.  I think that sometimes, we even lie to ourselves.  So is trust possible?

I do think that trust is possible.  For Fruitycake, he plays follow the leader. I am the leader.  And I take that responsibility seriously.  Fruity is outspoken and lets me know that he is following me. But maybe someone is following your example, and you don’t even know it.  Are you being a good example?


I like to think that I have lots of experience in life.

I like to think that I have learned a lot.  But I have also been sad a lot lately over Digby.  Fruity has given me a reason to be the example I should be.

And someone is looking to you to be the example you should be.  Make your example worthy.

Be who you are supposed to be. I can guarantee that someone is looking up to you. Maybe it’s me…
