It does not matter if you are a spectacularly colorful butterfly or a drab little moth, you can drink of life’s nectar and have your fill if you stop by the flowers at the right time.
I posted a beautiful swallowtail butterfly from Gibbs Gardens a few days ago. The graceful wings and bright colors of those glorious insects make the flowers look puny by comparison. At the same time, this little moth was flitting about and enjoying the same flowers. They don’t get much notice with their little wings and duller coloration but, they get to feast on the same flowers.
I think it should be the same way for us. Beauty, fame and fortune are nice but we all can enjoy the good things of life whether we are moths or butterflies. Focus on the blessings you have been given, not on what you do not have. Even those who we look on as rich and famous are often un-happy. It doesn’t matter what you position is, if you don’t care about anything but comparing what you have to what others have, you will never be satisfied.
Be the little moth who happily drinks from the best flowers and don’t worry about what others think of you.
