Can’t Always be a Good Egg

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.” ~ CS Lewis


I like being a good egg.  But I need to grow and let myself become the bird I need to be.


Growing is difficult and painful, but it needs to be done.  And I like the way Lewis puts it, so I thought I’d share today.
