Earlier this year, I got to see Sonic the Hedgehog The Movie. I actually enjoyed it. It had lots of action, and a great message about friendship, even amongst differences, how there’s no need to run from difficult things, and a how you should always put your bucket list first. Plus, the movie included LEGOs, and mentioned Olive Garden, which are just a few of my favorite things!
The movie reminded me of something that happened in 2019, during Mindvalley University, in Pula, Croatia. Here’s the story.
It was a few weeks in, I was sitting outside with a friend at an outdoor cafe, when we saw a baby hedgehog, crawling through the grass at our feet! Its mother was nowhere in sight. We started asking around, wondering what we should do. After all, I don’t think I’ve seen a wild hedgehog before in real life. I’ve never held one either. He (or she) was so cute, and not that prickly either.
We fed it water and did whatever else we could. This caught people’s attention and a small crowd began to form. We decided to name the hedgehog Sonic. Quite fitting, don’t you think? In the end, we released it back into the wild, and I believe he (or she) has made it home safely. No matter what happens, you can always find your way home.
