Crabs in a Bucket

I’ve heard the “crabs in a bucket” story so many times as an illustration of how people hold each other back from escaping to freedom, but I’ve never seen a video of it. Here’s a great 20 second clip showing just what happens when one crab tries getting away to pursue his own dreams:

Your adventures will require boldness and conviction. They will require a good map, a good compass to keep you on track, and a destination worth getting to.

Take heart and don’t let the crabs keep you from moving up and out to where you’re supposed to go.


In the Deep

what are we doing here?
floating in the deep end

can’t touch the bottom

can’t reach the sides

loves far away

lives in limbo

He said.

We did.

How long?

What for?
