”We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
– Maya Angelou
We have all seen the life cycle of a butterfly. It is a transformation of note! The focus is always on the beautiful butterfly at the end of the cycle.
In the last month, I have been experiencing a lot of awareness and growth. That awareness took place when I felt confined and in a dark place. It felt that I didn’t have much space to wiggle out of there – I had to confront the darkness and what it meant for me.
I have been on this journey of healing and growth for years and still, I find so many new layers that I need to work through in my own life. I realised that in “darkness” I could only focus on what I needed to work through. The “darkness” became a gift to me to get to my next level. The “lack of space” made me push myself out of my own obstructions of growth.
I know this is not my final transformation and I will go through the cycle of growth and transformation for as long as I breathe. I am getting ready to spread my wings and fly to my next level on this journey.
You too might feel stuck in darkness right now. You might feel weighed down. This is the time to focus on your growth and healing to transform and spread your wings!
Let’s see if we can strengthen the butterfly in its cocoon!
