“Make Your Today The Best Day Ever, Everyday” Fred Shadian

“The Arabian Desert Bedouin” by Fred Shadian

There is a wonderful story that I used to enjoy when I was a kid called


“The Arabian Desert Bedouin”.


An elder desert Bedouin wished to visit a friend who lived in a far away land.  The Bedouin did not have a camel or a horse nor did he have a magic carpet.  He was a very poor man. One day he decided to begin his journey on foot. It took him weeks and weeks of traveling through the deserts, climbing the mountains, crossing the rivers and avoiding the bandits but at long last he reached his destination and arrived at his friend’s house. His friend was overjoyed to see him.


Welcome! Welcome!  How did you manage to get here by yourself?

The Bedouin said:  “I took the first step towards my journey and didn’t look back. I just kept moving and was looking forward to seeing you and your family.”

This is a wonderful story to remember when we are inspired to act yet hesitate to take the necessary action.
