Jumping fish glass to bowl

I grabbed these photos off facebook this morning. This first one tells a story of someone willing to take chances. This little fishy seems to have gathered up enough nerve to finally jump out of his small glass of water and plunge into the big fish bowl. The only thing he knows about life in the big fish bowl is what he has perceived through a few layers of glass. Who knows how long he's been an observer, but he has decided that the glass doesn't fit anymore – or maybe the allure of a different life just got to be too much for him to resist. Either way, he is going for it! A new life. Different surroundings. However scary it might be, his need for something different has given him courage to face the unknown.

This second photo is reminiscent of a life that allows outside influences to determine its course. "Go with the flow," it seems to be saying. Sit on the beach and watch the waves come in. Relax. Take it easy. Don't worry about how it's going to turn out. Just take whatever comes your way.
