Inch by inch, life's a cinch.


This is a photo of a baby monarch caterpillar. Even though it is at the beginning of its journey, it eats leaves (mostly milkweed) at a legendary rate. Some eat enough to increase their size 1,000 times before they are fully grown. To accommodate this growth, it will molt or shed its non-expandable skin several times during this stage.

Imagine if it knew what it had to consume before it even started. It would be totally overwhelmed. But it doesn't know and so it is present to the moment and happily chomps away, inch by inch.

We are similar to the caterpillar in the sense that we are also consumers. However our difference lies in the fact that sometimes we have an awareness of what lies ahead of us - or what is expected of us - or what we have to do in order to survive. This can often be overwhelming. But what ever it is that we have to face, we are able to do it if we realize that it doesn't have to be done, all in one moment. We can accomplish anything if we take it one step at a time and always remember that "Inch by inch, life's a cinch - Yard by yard, it's too damned hard"
