This hamster trying to use a hamster wheel is a metaphor for the way life tends to throw a wrench in our plans. You’re going along just fine, thinking you’ve finally figured something out, or have a skill down, and suddenly things go sideways and you don’t even know how it happened.
The real kicker is that you get laughed at when you are in the most vulnerable position. But we can be like this little hamster, and just pick ourselves up and try again! -via Digg
