Thanks Mr. Moth!

Thanks Mr. Moth

Observations in nature make for great inspiration when we stop and contemplate them. I was just out on my balcony and saw something interesting. A very large moth got caught in a cobweb. I thought he might be stuck but watched as he freaked out for a second, got calm and then walked out of it. He crawled up the ledge and sat there for a second fluttering the crap off of his wings before flying off. Majestic.

I thought that this would make for a good metaphor for anxieties that we experience in every day life. We think a lot about the past and future, without giving enough mind to the moment at hand. We get so caught up that we stress ourselves out and don’t even realize that the reason why we’re stuck there in the first place is because the bump in the road was a part of our past. Once we see how little power it has over us, we can gather ourselves and move forward in our journey.

Let’s fly away! 🙂
