A Bird in The Hand is Worth Two in The Bush

Essay No. 01

When we were in fifth grade we got caught stealing mangoes. Needless to say, we got caught because we got greedy. It was my first brush with ‘the bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

It is better to be content with what you have than to risk losing everything to try to get something you don’t. Sometimes the glitter is so bright we get swayed and choose to go after something which we find later on was just that- some gold dust. My friend Ryan had a crush on Sabine-the prettiest girl in school, but she wouldn’t even look in his direction. Eventually, he began to date this girl called Rebbecca who really liked him a lot. One day he was at a party dancing with Rebbecca when he saw Sabine looking at him. Twice their eyes met and Ryan was overjoyed and began to hope he had a chance with the girl who had only been rude to him through the year. He stood Rebbecca up to go and ask Sabine for a dance. It turned out that Sabine had just wanted to use him to make her boyfriend jealous. That night Ryan lost Rebbecca: his proverbial ‘bird in the hand’ because he went after Sabine the proverbial: ‘bird in the bush’.

So before venturing into the proverbial bush one needs to really evaluate the worth of what one already has. Yes, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence but that’s what it is – on the other side. So be content with what you have and learn to appreciate and value it.

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush

Actual achievement is more important than wild ambition. Though ambition is a quality necessary for progress in life, it should be moderate enough to be realistic and practicable. Just as we have drawbacks and limitations, so we have talents and abilities to succeed in life. In making life enjoyable, our natural abilities have far more important than our impractical desires. Our attention should, therefore, be focused more on our abilities, and the ways to improve them, than on anything else. We may use our talents to improve the quality of our lives, but not to feed our greed. We must learn to be content with what we have. We may or may not fulfill our desires, but we can nourish our talents and use them for our welfare.
