We watched three caterpillars transform over a few weeks into butterflies. This transformation is remarkable! If a caterpillar can have such spectacular change then just a small change like reading 10 minutes in the morning can surely be achievable. Here is to you and whatever transformation you commit to! 🙂🎉🦋

I like to literally open new doors like the doors above as well as exploring new towns, churches, libraries, restaurants and stores. Not every week lends itself to physically going to new places so it is good to read books, blogs, stretch your imaginationContinue reading “Open a new door”
