Pancake Day is an event much looked forward to in our house. Well, at least by my husband – I can take or leave them, and this year I didn’t indulge. But delivering up a treat in the pancake department was my main concern (am I the best wife ever?) as a little treat for my beloved. And in recognition of Pancake Day/Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras, I was reminded of the notion of putting all your eggs in one basket – so often seen as undesirable, unwise, unsafe. But, what if it’s a metaphor for something much more positive? Like, for example . . .
- making a decision
- stating your unequivocal support
- placing your trust in another
- speaking out, speaking up for someone who deserves it
- praising someone and meaning it
So, just sometimes, can’t a single plan of action be a good thing?
