I’ve suddenly found myself with a handful of snow globes around the house.  That’s what happens when you have kids.

Until you gently shake it, a snow globe is pretty boring.  There’s nothing happening.  Just the status quo.  Normalcy.  Complacency.

But you shake it…and something happens.  It becomes interesting.  There’s a story.  There’s change.

And that simple little household dust collector made me think:

Sure, snow globes are fun to look at.  But if you are waiting for someone else to shake things up for you, get comfortable…life is not a snow globe.  No one else is going to make something happen for you.  

You’ve gotta shake your own snow globe.
