The Daily Inspo / The Rewards of Risk

It is so easy to close down to risk,
to protect ourselves against change and growth.
But no baby bird emerges without first
destroying the perfect egg sheltering it.
We must risk being raw and fresh and awkward.
For without such openness, life will not penetrate us anew.
Unless we are open, we will not be filled.
