Today's message is about transformation. I saw the image of a beautiful butterfly and heard the word, 'Change'.
Sometimes, we'll get that nudge, that urge to finally go after what our inner voice has been urging us to do for quite some time. We feel inspired and excited to try something new. We start thinking about the 'How', the 'When', and the 'Where' of making that change.
But then, our critical mind gets in the way, discouraging us from venturing out of our familiar little world. We become fearful of all the horrible things that could happen if we go after our dreams. We ask ourselves: What if I don't have enough time, money, energy to see this through? What if this relationship doesn't work out? So, we end up dismissing our inspirational ideas and falling back into the lap of safety.
This brings to mind a quote: “A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” — John A. Shedd.
