Advice from a Caterpillar....

I couldn't resist the name of this shop. It is actually a children's wear boutique, but it says so much more. What would a caterpillar tell you?

Would he say....

1. Believe that one day you will fly. Believe that you will soar above your limitations, above your frailties, above everything that keeps you low, slow and plodding!! Believe that one day you will be amazing!!

2. Believe that you are capable of travelling an impossible number of miles, surmounting an incredible number of challenges, transforming the very essence of your being, to achieve your goals.

2. Believe in magic!

Remember the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland (or Alice for that matter) who said....

Caterpillar: Who... are... you? 
Alice: Why, I hardly know, sir. I've changed so much since this morning, you see... 
Caterpillar: No, I do not C, explain yourself. 
Alice: I'm afraid I can't explain myself, you see, because I'm not myself, you know. 
Caterpillar: I do not know. 
Alice: I can't put it any more clearly, sir, because it isn't clear to me. 

Maybe this caterpillar on the grounds of an inn we stayed at last year would say - recycle - make something whimsical from discarded tires, plastic bottles, old tubes....or whatever!!

It's really all about transformation. Seeing the beauty and the talent, where others perhaps don't and making it "fly."

Have a remarkable day!!


  1. Yeah! Lovely post, great read.

  2. I like this thought - believe on day you will fly. Does a catterpillar think? That's the next question.

  3. Thank you for this tale! Im a caterpillar....finally I know who I am....♥Debi

  4. Love your post! It's all about believing in yourself. When you do great things can happen!
