Spreading My Wings - original front

How does one become a butterfly? she asked pensively. You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.

I remind myself from time to time that you can’t be comfortable and brave at the same time. It’s impossible. Being brave always have that weird feeling of your skin tingling or crawling, and, sure, that’s not a pleasant feeling but if you want something bad, you just do it. It takes guts to be brave and I don’t think we were put on this earth to settle for “comfortable.” I think we were put on this earth to thrive.
