The sun was supposed to come out after a week of rain and cold. But it was so nice snuggled into my soft, warm bed. I didn’t have to get up. I wanted to, needed to take a walk, but that was my thought last night, not 6:45am this morning! Many things are either just too easy to do or too easy not to do. As I get older, it gets easier for my mind and body to choose easier, comfy, and effortless. I did get up, but the sky didn’t match the weather report; lots of gray clouds to the north and east. Did my herculean effort to get up go to waste? I checked one more time to the west and there was lots of sunlight shining through and the clouds were quickly heading east. So I went and my mind and body are feeling the benefiting from it. So easy to stay where I am, where I’m comfortable, where I only have to exert a small amount of effort. If all the caterpillars in the world shared that view, the world would be deprived of amazingly beautiful butterflies. I should never settle for being a caterpillar.
