The Beautiful Butterﬂy
Are you ready? Are you really ready for the journey to become a beautiful butterﬂy?
The journey begins with a hairy and scary little creature inching along and trying to ﬁnd its place in life. Taking forever and a day to get from point A to point B. Tired and exhausted from all the obstacles in life and realizing that you aren't what you intended to be, but you're not willing to give up.
Next you decide to stop along the way and take a rest, make a plan, create a vision and before long you realize that you're stuck in this place, this thing called a cocoon.
You push, you pull, you scream and you ﬁght as it begins to squeeze you tighter and tighter. What are you going to do with this life that has you turned upside down? You begin to feel intense pain and realize you are growing; but you know you can only truly do that outside of the space you're in right now. You then gather all your strength, all your might and give it everything you have to set yourself free and in a ﬂash, you're free; but you've changed.
You notice you have wings and they are colorful and beautiful. You notice you have room to ﬂy. You notice the new place is bigger and better than the old, but most of all you have a different view. You notice your vantage point is no longer from the ground, but from the sky.
Are you prepared to take ﬂight?
You bet your wings I AM.
