Welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and today is June 4th. Today is National Cheese Day. Yes, you heard that right, an entire day dedicated to that wonderful dairy delight. Whether you love cheddar, brie, gouda, or you’re a fan of the classic american phony plasticy sliced cheese like substance, today is your excuse to indulge in your favorite cheesy treats.

After all, who doesn’t love a good cheese board or a perfectly melted grilled cheese sandwich?

So, go ahead and add a little extra cheese to your day – it’s practically a requirement. Speaking of CHEESE, lets move on to the quote of the day. Our quote for today comes from Hem and Haw in Spencer Johnson’s book, “Who Moved My Cheese?” Hem and Haw were two mice who roamed a maze everyday in search of cheese.

They said,

“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” Now, isn’t that a question that can really get you thinking?

Hem and Haw’s journey through the maze in search of cheese is a powerful metaphor for life’s changes and the fears that often come with them.

It’s fitting that we reflect on this today, on National Cheese Day. Just as the characters in the story searched for their cheese, we often search for our own ‘cheese’ – the things that bring us joy and fulfillment.

In the book, Hem and Haw have it made because they had a big supply of cheese. The cheese lasted a long time so they didn’t have to search for “new cheese”. But when the cheese ran out they didn’t immediately look for new cheese. They thought “maybe the cheese will come back”.

They asked questions like “who moved my cheese”.

Well, it doesn’t really matter who or why the cheese moved. Hem and Haw need to get out there and find “new cheese”. But they were afraid to go after “new cheese”.

So, let’s take a moment to ponder this:

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

Would you search for a new type of cheese?

Maybe start a new hobby, change your career, or even tell someone how you really feel? Fear can be a powerful force, but it doesn’t have to be. Take a cue from Hem and Haw – embrace change, face your fears, and who knows, you might just find a new favorite cheese along the way.

Trust me… i know!

If the cheese runs out, your not going to get more by staying where you are. You have to go for the cheese. Thank you for joining me today on The Daily Quote. I hope you enjoy National Cheese Day and that the words of Hem and Haw inspire you to face your fears and embrace change.

Because that is what the book, Who Moved My Cheese is all about. Embracing change… I suggest you read it if this episode inspired you to look for “new cheese”.

Until next time, I’m Andrew McGivern, reminding you to savor every moment – and every bite. Have a great day!

And I’ll see you tomorrow with another Daily Quote.
