“The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
This quote absolutely has special meaning to me, and seemed perfect as we kick off a new year!
Staying in the bud may seem safe – but the cocoon is only a small part of metamorphosis. In your cocoon you may feel safe, secure, comfortable. You’ve surrounded yourself with a shell or an armor that keeps you from being disturbed. But while the cocoon is vital for growth, eventually you have to break out and try your brand new wings. You have to show yourself that you’re no longer the awkward caterpillar and that you have grown!
Have the courage to try new things. Have the guts to define and chase your dreams.
I encourage you all to blossom this year!
