Sometimes when I’m out for a walk in the woods with Koda, I see a box turtle trudging forward through the leaves. Don’t you love turtles?
I was always taught that if you see any turtles in the middle of the road, you should try to stop and put them on the side of the road where they’re headed. You must also pick them up carefully and try not to handle them too much. You can use a t-shirt or towel to lift and move them away from the traffic.
As I watched this turtle during my walk, I thought about how connected we are to these amazing creatures and how many lessons they can teach us. Here are a few that came to mind.
Speaking of direction, if you see a turtle in the road, remember to help them back to the same direction where they’re headed. If you place them back to where they were coming from, they may look up at you as if they’re saying: “Thanks Pal. Now I have to start all over again!
Turtles often symbolize patience, longevity and persistence. What are some lessons that turtles have taught you? If you have any wisdom, trivia, stories about turtles or even photos to share, I’d love to hear about your turtle stories, so please share them on my Facebook and Instagram pages.
