Thought of the day: "Be the buffalo!"

Yes, you read that right. Be the buffalo!

Did you know that when a storm is approaching, a dairy cow will turn and run?

But when a buffalo faces the same situation, it charges directly into the storm -- and straight through it.

When conflict or challenge comes in our lives, we need to face it head-on, not duck, run or hide. By doing so, we can get through the storm quicker and move on with our lives.

Are you facing a tough situation today? If so, what are you waiting for?

Be the buffalo!
