I asked her if she knew if all caterpillars turned into butterflies and she said that she didn't know, but suspected that not all did.
Which got me thinking - how many of us transform into something else, and how many of us don't? Of course, even caterpillars who stay caterpillars would have their place in the world, but if they had the opportunity to turn into a beautiful butterfly, to transform and grow wings to fly, why wouldn't they? I've been thinking lately about what holds me back from moving forward and transforming into that butterfly.
I can look back at times when I surpassed fear and changed my life, but I think it is an ongoing process. We can find ourselves in the caterpillar stage again and again. It's never finished.
I realized that I don't want to stay a caterpillar.. I want to keep going, progressing and becoming the person I am meant to be. I want to be a butterfly.
