Letting go to grow

“We cannot become what we want to be by remaining what we are.”

—Max DePree

Shifting sand beneath your feet doesn’t necessarily mean the ground’s giving way. Sometimes, it’s simply making room for something new. This reminds us: we cannot become what we aspire to by clutching onto our current state. We must let go to grow.

Consider this. A caterpillar entombed in a cocoon isn’t clinging to its past. It surrenders to the transformation, aware of its potential butterfly future. Similarly, to embrace our full potential, we need to shed our present skin, break free from the shell of our comfort zones. It’s a continuous act of self-evolution, a daring quest toward our desired selves. Let’s transform and fly, not crawl.
