Big days happen in nature as they do with humans. Overcoming fear and anxiety in the face of challenge enables us to move on and to mature.

As humans, we often will fret and worry about what we are having to face, but we are no different from other creatures in that respect. In fact, by observing and learning to respect other animals, whether they be mammals, birds or insects, we can perhaps gain by realizing that we are very much connected and not so arrogantly superior as we might think.
