“The only way that we can live is if we grow. The only way we can grow is if we change. The only way we can change is if we learn.
The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we are exposed is if we throw ourselves into the open.”

Today is Easter Sunday. A day for those that celebrate christianity that is a holy day where they believe Jesus Christ was risen from the dead. This brings to mind the idea of restarting, of being reborn to start anew with the knowledge of everything I have tried to guide me in my new journey. It’s hard sometimes in the day-to-day of animal rescue to stop what you’re doing, and to step back and think about how you can grow and evolve. A caterpillar lives it’s life eating leaves until one day… it decides that it is time for the next evolution, the next step, the next challenge. The caterpillar makes a conscious decision to change and it stops everything and begins to spin its cocoon to protect itself as it transforms from a ground dweller to a beautiful butterfly. Through this evolution the caterpillar evolves to dramatically change its view of the world and it alters its sense of being and purpose. We have a wonderful term for this called metamorphosis.
What are you doing to morph and grow, to evolve and change, to be reborn and reinvigorated in your quest to save animals? How can you apply everything you have learned and experienced in animal rescue to continue to evolve and grow and bring new ideas to what we do to save animals? If you spin a cocoon now to protect yourself while you transform, what will you look like when you break out of your cocoon? I built Doobert to support you, to inspire you, to provide you with tools and connections to others passionate about the cause. Now it’s time for us to be reborn, to evolve and take it to another level. How should we do that…
