Caterpillars Don’t Know What They’re Doing (And Neither Do I)

caterpillar_sunPicture books may not be considered sophisticated reading, but you’ll never find a more honest examination of humanity in thirty-two pages or less. I’m convinced the world would need fewer self-help books, if we spent more time reading children’s books.

I think I’ve read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle, at least 100 times. Do you know what I love most about that book? Without a care in the world, the caterpillar indulges his insatiable hunger with a week of binge-eating, hides out for a month to recover, then wakes up as a beautiful butterfly. #lifegoals

Caterpillars aren’t pre-occupied with their transformative destiny. They don’t even know what they’re doing; they just follow their gut and embrace the journey. An admirable example for the rest of us, I’d say. And maybe we’ll emerge from the messiness as a beautiful butterfly. Or at the very least, a moderately attractive moth.
