Caterpilling to success

imagesThere are three important lessons I have taken from the childhood literary classic, Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar:

ONE:  I just need to eat a lot and then have a nap and I will emerge a pretty butterfly

TWO: It doesn’t matter what sort of food I eat, or the nutritional value it holds, I will emerge a pretty butterfly.

THREE: Sure, food waste, pollution and proper disposal of garbage is an issue. And people around the world are starving — but I can nibble just one small hole through a piece of food and move on to the next piece of food. Why? BECAUSE I WILL EMERGE A PRETTY BUTTERFLY.

    Sounds good…but just keep in mind that “There is a variety of predators that like to chow down on a butterfly like birds, snakes, lizards, rats, and monkeys. Also, there are other insects that attack butterflies such as wasps, ants, and parasitic flies.” Pretty means crap in the insect world…but having wings can be like having the whole roll of toilet paper lol!
