When you are born with a completely secure mobile home perched right on top of your own four legs, it is pretty hard to imagine life without it.
That handy box helps you avoid oh so many of life’s perils, from awkward social exchanges to being plated and served.
But sometimes your box can get a little too convenient.
It becomes just a touch too easy to crawl inside and call it a day.
And some things in life are worth staying out for.
For instance, there is such a thing as love. Such as the love your large shell-less rescue mama has for you.
Sure, you can still feel the love when you are safe and warm inside your turtle box.
But you can’t show your mommy that you feel it.
You can’t have that life-altering experience of receiving love….and then giving your love in return.
For that – to make contact – you have to be brave. You have to come out of your box.
