Who knew that a tiger could have a midlife crisis? Well apparently, that is exactly what happened to Mr. Tiger when he suddenly decided that he did not like the status quo.
The same old boring things everyday, the same conversations and the same boring upstanding uptight world. He had an idea. He was going to change things up a bit. Back down on four legs and a nice mighty roar.
If you are going to act wild, why not return to nature he was told. Unfortunately, that was not the answer either. There had to be a nice middle ground.
You know what Mr. Tiger found, that if you open the door to allow others to be themselves, very positive things could happen.
As they say, a tiger cannot change his stripes and that is a good lesson for all of us to learn.
