And Barry thought he was tough! When he was on the football field, he was tough. . but when it came to biting insects. . well, one day, so long ago, he was overcome with HURT! Barry didn't know what tough was until he tried to tackle this little fellah!

In between semesters, this junior at a major college in the Midwest was ready for some time off.  Two-a-day drills, early morning football practice and a very long season had this young college student / athlete totally drained.  He needed a vacation and knew that Costa Rica could provide exactly what he desired. . ten days of fun, sun, surfing, volcanoes, rainforests, canopy zip lining and so much more!  So, Barry, Mikey, Steve and Jeremy hopped on a plane and flew to the Guanacaste airport. They were staying in Playas del Coco in a beachfront hotel. Wow, what a getaway this was for them. All on the football team, they always were trying to outdo the other! Lots of competition here. . we'll get to that later! They packed a month's worth of activities in the first two days. They were letting off steam before they returned for their last semester of their school year and they were having some fun.  Barry learned how to surf. . Steve loved seafood, so he was happy. Jeremy met a girl that he swears he wants to marry and Mikey was making friends with the locals!  His Spanish was perfect and he met a brother and sister who loved insects.  Carlos and Maria invited all four of them over to their villa just four blocks away from where they were staying. They had a butterfly garden set up in back. . with blue morphos and other types fluttering around. They had caterpillars and rhino beetles and all kinds of spiders.  Carlos also had an area where he kept some bullet ants.  If you don't know, there's a reason they call them "BULLET ANTS".  If you get bit, it feels like you got shot.  Well, Carlos dared the biggest one of the bunch. . Barry, to putting his hand in the glass enclosure.  Barry said "NO" at first, but didn't want to appear to be scared of anything.  After all, Barry was a linebacker on a Division One football team. He was used to pain.  So he lowered his left hand and dared that little creature to bite him.

Seconds later, after agitating that little demon creature and coaxing it on, he got what he asked for.  And 20 years later, as Barry and I drink coffee at my favorite soda in downtown San Jose, he tells me that it was worse than a bullet. That ant showed Barry what pain was all about. He had met his match!

Today, I want to remind you of the incredible power that lies in the simple act of putting one day at a time together. Life can be overwhelming at times, filled with responsibilities, expectations, and aspirations. In the midst of it all, it's easy to lose sight of the present moment and become consumed by worries about the future or regrets from the past. However, by focusing on each day as it comes and finding contentment in what you have, you can unlock a profound sense of happiness and fulfillment. In a world that often encourages us to constantly strive for more, it's important to pause and reflect on the blessings that we already have been given. Try this today and smile a lot!
The world belongs
