Simon & Garfunkel, Guinea Pigs & mental health..

You may be thinking what does Simon and Garfunkel have to do with guinea pigs? 

Meet Garfunkel, having his very first outing at grandmas house.

Simon is still in the house because he is a stubborn little shit, and won’t let grandma pick him up.

Here is Simon …the black and white piggy.

These two guinea pigs were my grandsons, but like most kids they lost interest once Minecraft became an option. 

They were once called Woody and Buzz, but there is no way grandma was shouting out Buzz Buzz in the garden. The neighbours already think I’m nuts. At least shouting Garfunkel I sound cooler…

So they were rechristened Simon and Garfunkel.

Unfortunately Simon has cut his nose off to spite his face today, because whilst he is stuck in his boring cage, Garfunkel is living it large in the sunshine, eating fresh dandelions, and watching the world go by.

Garfunkel took a leap of faith and ended up with a reward. 

Simon on the other hand, is stuck in his ways, so shall miss out on all of the fun today.

If Simon only knew what was waiting for him on the other side, he would take that leap of faith and let grandma pick him up.

A life lesson for us all, you may be afraid, but do it anyway, you may be stuck in your ways, then you have to change your ways. Life is full of twists and turns, how are you ever going to find out what is really ‘out there’ for you, if you are scared of change?

I have been stuck in a vicious circle of not accepting change for 50 years.

Since I decided to take my own leap of faith, the amazing things that have happened to me have been unbelievable. 

Don’t be afraid to take that leap, what do you have to lose ? 

Feel the fear but Do it anyways love Betty x
