Were you awake all night wondering how the caterpillars were? You are so perceptive. Our overachieving caterpillars got themselves into position last night.
I got to watch one get into position last night. First he attached his backside. Then he tucked his head in. Then, he folded in all his legs but the front two and dropped down. I was mesmerized. Who knew caterpillars were so interesting? I missed America’s Got Talent waiting for the drop. ( It wasn’t a huge sacrifice.) No one trained that caterpillar to do that. It was time for change and he did what he needed to do.
How unlike me. It’s time for change in an area of my life too. I have my tail attached and my head tucked, but I keep holding on with my front two feet. “Not yet! I don’t know! Am I doing the right thing? What happens next? What are the other caterpillars doing? Is this right? Is this going to hurt?”
Let go. Let go. Let go.
If I don’t shed the last exoskeleton, I don’t get to see what comes next.
Drop down and get into position.
10K Notebook: I made myself a music playlist for when I want to run fast. I have been trying not to use it too much in fear I would become bored with it. Yesterday’s humidity was brutal. After three miles, I literally could have been walking faster. I started my playlist and I sped off like one of Pavlov’s dogs. Now we know.
