“Fear of death follows from the fear of life. One who lives fully is prepared to die.” -Mark Twain
Caught a glimpse of this stunning creature the other day.
The Mayfly has a short-lived life but that news does not depress or slow her down. 🧚🏻♀️ With no mouth she neither has to take in or give out. 🤭
These “bugs of a feather” fly together in swarms and interesting mate in flight. 👀
Their lesson is to enjoy the moment, do not fear transformation and go for quality over quantity.
You too are a stunning creature in this world… but not of the world. You don’t need to absorb the fearful diet offered here and you don’t need to fix anyone. Just enjoy your own magical flight on this funny blue marble. While you are here may you fly to your true potential and experience great flight!
Love more, fearless and when you catch your audacious reflection on a car door. Take a moment to marvel.
