What I Learned From A Windmill


Face the wind; Bring up the deep water; Look around; Be reliable; Be an oasis; Do what you do best; Don’t lose your head;
Bring up the water from under your tower; Adapt;
Accept help when you need it;
There is no sense in hiding from a storm;
Without you someone might not make it;
It’s okay to be unique; Live for the long – term;
Stay in the wind; Reach higher anyway;
The wind blows harder the higher you go.
