A Lesson from the Buffalo

Most animals, when sensing an approaching storm, turn their backs to it and try to outrun it . . . many humans do the same. The problem with this strategy is that we end up running with the storm as it overtakes us which prolongs the suffering.

Buffalo do something pretty unique though. Instead of running from the stormy weather, they turn and face it head on. By turning directly in to the storm, it passes them much more quickly, shortening the duration of the suffering.
What a great metaphor for us as we choose how we will face our storms!
