Genius Moments #13 - Life Lessons from Spiders & Children: Meeting Change with Courage & Excitement



A sweet conversation between Kate Shepherd and her son Cosmo about spiders and idea of how embracing change and taking calculated risks in life can be viewed as exciting instead of scary and lead you to your best life. 

The chat between 11 year old Cosmo and his mum Kate Shepherd host of The Creative Genius Podcast highlights the spider's ability to venture into the unknown by climbing to the top of a tree, building a floating web, and letting the wind carry it to a new destination. This serves as a metaphor for human life -  we can all choose to be willing to leave our comfort zones when we feel unfulfilled or in need of change and may very well be rewarded with more than we might imagine. 

The wisdom drawn from this conversation emphasizes the importance of being brave and open to new experiences, just as the spider is excited rather than scared to see what comes next. It encourages people to trust that taking a leap into the unknown may lead to a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Nature's wisdom, as observed through the spider's behavior, serves as an inspiration for people to be more like children and embrace change with excitement and courage.
