You Must Do The Thing Which You Think You Cannot Do

It’s raining here today, which reminds me of mud, and mud brings to mind this little sweetie:

Cinders suffers from a fear of mud—a rare disorder for an animal that typically 1) Takes great pleasure in wet dirt, and 2) Values exploration above nearly all else. While her siblings frolicked in muck, Cinders watched from the sidelines, trembling.

Feeling her pain, Cinders’ guardians fitted her with special tiny Wellingtons—solution enough for her to resume typical piglet behavior, proving the truth in Eleanor Roosevelt’s sage advice: “You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” (Though you may need some special workaround, e.g., Wellies, to get the job done.)
