She lives in my herb garden. Directly behind Charlotte to your left is my mint and to your right, the rosemary. Charlotte cares nothing for my herbs. She’s much more interested in the garden fence between which she constructed her large web. A common yellow garden spider (Argiope aurantia), Charlotte is completely harmless to humans and unrelenting in her efforts to live fully each day.
I check in on her every morning. I have a chat with her, acknowledge her latest catches, express astonishment at her ingenuity, speed and cleaning of her dinner plate.
Notice that fancy vertical zig zag running through the center of Charlotte’s web? Every single night before she sleeps, Charlotte eats that center zig zag portion of her web and weaves a new zig zag center, strong and reinforced, ready for her next day’s unknown adventures.
Charlotte believes in the power of reinvention.
She isn’t wasting any of her precious time missing yesterday’s web.
She chooses daily to come from an even stronger core.
She is ferocious in protecting her center and is relentless in her efforts to make it better.
The center of Charlotte’s web is her epicenter for growth.
Charlotte is remarkable.
She’s not messing around. She’s living out loud.
Need me to weave the metaphor for you into the web?
Nah. You’ve got this.
