Sharks and Coconuts
Random thoughts as I prepare to go back to work tomorrow. The first day my boys had at the beach in Florida there was a shark sighting. They spent the rest of the week looking at the ocean instead of swimming in it. Do you know you have a greater chance of being killed by a falling coconut than by a shark? It's true. An average of 500 people are killed every year by falling coconuts, far more than are killed by sharks. The moral of this bizarre fact? The things you fear in life, the things that are holding you back, keeping you from amazing experiences are not the things that will get you. It's that coconut you never see coming.
