If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes
In order to come into form, a butterfly develops through a process called metamorphosis that has four stages; each stage is fully dependent on the other. While change can at times feel painful, if we don’t allow ourselves to go through the all stages of change, nothing will ultimately change. We will stay in the same form. This inhibits us from flying.
Everything We Are Taking In Will Be Fuel & Nourishment For Our New Form
During the first stage, the feeding stage, the caterpillar’s job is to eat and eat and eat. It fills itself with nourishment as the food eaten at this time is stored and used later as an adult. Trust that the process of nourishing yourself with experiences is ultimately feeding your future form—even if the experiences are particularly challenging.
Never Underestimate Yourself, Your Abilities, Or Your Power
A butterfly never underestimates itself. It does give up on being a caterpillar its whole life.
“How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.” Trina Paulus
You can do just about anything you set your mind to. And just about is plenty good for accomplishing more in life than you have time to accomplish.
