Thought for the day:-Ros
The Stubborn Caterpillar- A Story About the Call to Action.
There was a caterpillar who had gorged himself on leaves and then made a nice comfortable cocoon out of silk and twigs. Then when it was time to break out of the cocoon he refused to budge. A voice came from outside the cocoon, "it's time to come out now"
"It's time to come out now"
"I don't want to"
"It's time to come out now!" Repeated the voice gently but firmly.
"But I'm comfortable here.I feel safe here. I'm snug here.I know what to expect here . "Responded the caterpillar defiantly.
'You weren't transformed to hide away in a cocoon. You have wings now,you were transformed to fly,to show the world your colours and be magnificent. You can't do that from the safety of your cocoon.
We all have a choice in life.
We can choose to stay in the cocoon that we have made for ourselves,where it is safe , warm and comfortable ,but ultimately limiting and unfulfilling.
Or we can break out and fly, displaying our abilities for others to see and be influenced by.
Ros;- Perhaps we can say that by being Rotarians we are each using our abilities to help and influence others
