“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly,
but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been talking a lot about changing and breaking free from the past. Sometimes, we’re inspired by the idea of changing – of letting go of the old and creating something new, something unlike what we had before.
Other times, however, the thought of changing terrifies us. We wonder how we’ll do it, whether we’ll really be able to change, and where in the world to begin.
If this is how you feel about yourself and your life, know that it’s a pretty typical response. It’s a common reaction to be afraid of what you don’t know. It’s natural to want to know ahead of time how things are going to work out in the end. And it’s okay to admit that you don’t know where to begin.
Change can be uncomfortable.
Imagine how the caterpillar feels, day after day trapped inside of her cocoon, trying to move, transform, and break out of the shell that has been holding her captive for so long! I’m pretty sure the caterpillar doesn’t like being in there. It must be painful at times to allow her body to go through the changes it must go through to have her transform herself from the inside out – replacing parts of herself that no longer serve their purpose with new ones; letting go of the life she’s known as a caterpillar to become something new, something she’s never known herself to be.
When she finally emerges from her former shell, the butterfly is literally unrecognizable. There is no trace of the former caterpillar left!
Instead, what emerges is a beautiful, vibrant butterfly that is ready to spread her wings and fly! The butterfly has no idea what life has in store for her. She only knows that in this new form she is able to soar, be free, and discover a whole new world that was completely unavailable to her when she was merely a caterpillar.
We go through similar changes when we get to the point that we’re ready to grow and change.
We begin to leave behind the fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs that we’ve held onto and wrapped ourselves in for so long. We begin to replace them with new thoughts, beliefs, and habits that will help us become the woman we were created to be and to experience life as if for the first time, completely open to new experiences, opportunities, and, yes, new love!
If you’re tired of living life as a caterpillar – tired of being afraid, of allowing someone or experiences from your past to determine your worth, happiness, and what’s possible for you – and you’re ready to begin growing, transforming, and becoming a new version of yourself, then make a choice to begin now!
You can start your transformation signing up for the “Ready to Love Again, 6-Week Course, which starts on Wednesday, March 12th!
