Flight of a butterfly
Sometimes, in-between coaching sessions and workshops I make a stop in the park and take my well deserved treat of fresh air and living energy. Surrounded by the predominant colors of the season, in late summer days I wonder where all the butterflies have gone?
Now that it’s fall I know there are even less chances to find them, but this doesn`t prevent me to quit getting inspired by their lives. You know, depending on the species there are butterflies who live a few hours, days, weeks or even one year – the lucky one to live longer is the monarch butterfly.
I intend to live in an average life of a butterfly as much as others seek to live by the tales years. This means that I enjoy every day and every thing, every being or every thought that I’m given to meet. There are moments in life that we put consciously on the album of memories and others we forget just about in the same time when they occur.
It seems that a butterfly is flapping its wings 25 times per second … which is pretty fast. Your wishes can materialize more quickly than that as you manage to control your thoughts, giving free rein to the creative nature of yourself. Fewer concerns about what would your boss has to say, and more courage to be proactive.
It is shown that these creatures so frail are able to combine several advanced techniques to ensure aerodynamic flight. The techniques are so well developed, that researchers got some of their inspiration from them to create the flight of models or robots. Why we should limit ourself to a oasis created in the comfort zone?
We could call them swimming through the air, as opposed to birds, this is what butterflies do … swim through the atmosphere. And this doesn’t seem so hard to believe considering that there are people who prefer to swim through the water by using the `butterfly` method. What if we apply the same method when we reach in front of the heavy tide and monotony of the office?
Pilots take off only after their radar show favorable winds. For butterflies the radars are their small feet, an example of a simple anchor used in the reality you step in – the air in this case. Tell me how confident you step into the elevator which opens its doors on the first floor of your working day?
Well, the flyght of a butterfly seems so simple and yet is so complex. It only generates admiration in the eyes of those passing by them. The same complex simplicity you can have in your professional work, just trust the current of air you choose to ‘fly on`.
