This is a story of struggle.

Yesterday was a difficult day. It was a Murphy's Law sort of day.

If it were a restaurant entrée, it would be described as a generous medley of setbacks seasoned with frustration and a dollop of regret.

Over dinner, a friend generously listened to me vent and then reminded me of this wonderful story.

It begins with a man who finds a moth pushing to emerge from a cocoon through a tiny opening.

He watched it eagerly, waiting for the moth to break free. He wanted to witness the first spread of its wings as it flew into its new life. 🦋

After a few hours, the moth still hadn't escaped. In fact, it had stopped moving, and he realized it was stuck.

Wanting to help the moth, he opened the cocoon and let the moth emerge. But he soon saw that the moth's body was swollen and its wings were wrinkled and not able to unfurl.

It died soon after, never having tasted the glory of flight.

He realized then that the moth needed that fight to emerge. The moth needed to push itself out of that narrow opening to force the fluid from its body into its wings so they could develop fully.

The struggle itself was necessary for the moth to grow.

And isn't that our story as well?
