Life…

…is either a daring adventure or nothingHelen Keller

Take this butterfly below for example. The butterfly knows and understands it is vulnerable the moment it breaks free from the enclosed space of its cocoon.

Yet, it flutters free from the protected green into the vast blueness of the sky. Of course the chance of something terrible happening to the butterfly increases. However, imagine being a butterfly and trapped away from the blue only to be covered by the dark green with very little room to spread your beautiful wings.

The butterfly is not living, it is just existing. Spread your wings and break free from your cocoon. Break free from your green. Fly into the blueness and experience this amazing world we live in.

Remember:

Compared to this universe, your life is a mere moment.
