the butterfly circus

Finding our niche is harder than it seems.

I’ve been having thoughts about why – but I’ll share those down the road.

Today I want to share something special with you.

The other day a friend of mine sent me a link to a short film called The Butterfly Circus (you can watch it below) that was so deeply inspiring.

And it’s right on point for this theme of how your deepest wound is often your truest niche. The movie features Nick Vujicic who you might have seen in a youtube video he did that became extremely popular.

I think part of why it’s hard to see how our niche could come from our wound is that we are still trapped in our wound and seeing from it, instead of looking at it. And sometimes it takes a lot of love from a lot of people and wisdom from those who’ve gone before us to not only see our wounds for what they are – but to help us understand the gifts buried inside of them.

Go watch this movie right now. I think you’re going to love it.

About Tad

  • Perfect timing! Picking my jaw up off the floor (I swear). So rich. P.S. Christina Morassi sounds alot like Siddiqi Ray. Have you noticed a group of gifted photographers are appearing on ‘the scene’ to help us show us aglow (specially to ourselves)? Interesting timing there too, no?
