I've been thinking about the phrase "Beggars can't be choosers." I've heard it before, and apparently my gut believes that people who have less resources and great need, can't be picky or they lose out on the gift being offered. But I still find myself resenting the phrase. It feels as though the New Age people would say we attract things that resonate with our thoughts, but that would mean we always have the option to choose a better thought than the one we are thinking. Can that be true? How much control over our feelings and thoughts do we have? Is it a lot or a little, or somewhere in the middle? Do poor people have a harder time thinking thoughts that would make them rich? Is that why there are so many of us? Isn't that what makes an underdog rising, such a crowd pleaser - because there are so many of us poor ones wanting to rise above our own circumstances? So, how much CAN we CHOOSE our thoughts? Can beggars be choosers?Are they not beggars because they are stuck somehow? Can we choose not to be stuck? Can we simply choose a better life or do we require a rescue? Do we require a savior of some kind or other to give us a lift out of poverty? Thoughts?
We created monsters with these guys. Because Dolly, Domino, and Dulce have metabolic issues, they have to have a special diet. That means they don’t get the free fed hay like everyone else. Feeling bad about that, we’ve been giving them 3-4 small meals a day so they don’t go long periods without food. Well, now they bray, cry, whinny, honk, yell, scream, you name it, anytime they see someone. They are sure it means another meal.....or they are complaining about not having one. Not sure. Our poor neighbors.😬 #tobyslegacy#rescue#sanctuary#soloud#beggars#donkey#poa#pony#mini#bigtalkers
