Beaver (Listen while you read)
You say we’ve got lots to do!
Yeah, that’s life.
Yeah, that’s to be expected.
Did you think that life was to be easy?
No; life is for working hard in whatever manner is right for you.
(It’s all about priorities; yep, that’s right; it’s all about priorities.
So, where are your priorities? That’s the question that the beaver is asking of you. Where are your priorities? Once you can answer this question all of your troubles will vanish my friend. Where are your priorities? What is it that you want? Do you want to be forever second guessing yourself, or do you want to know what your priorities are? Do you fear knowing what your priorities are? Are you concerned that once you appreciate what they are that you will not be able to fulfill them? Yes my friend; life is one big priority after another. Once we fulfill one priority we will find another priority taking its place. That is right, my friend. Do not be afraid to name your priorities; no, dear friend; this will allow you to practice tolerance and acceptance. Tolerance; that indeed you have priorities, and acceptance of the fact that priorities are a normal condition of living. Once you have accepted your priorities, named and fulfilled them, you will be satisfied, my friend. Without having achieved this personal goal you will remain inconsolable indeed.)
