This week I’m at a place that has a beautiful butterfly garden. And as I walked along and pondered the symbolism, I stepped on the 4th caterpillar of my trip.
And as I do, I then pondered that. You know what I realized? Beyond the beautiful transformation, to become a butterfly a caterpillar must make it to that stage. They have to overcome
Getting stepped on, run over, squished, and little kids
Getting eaten by birds, lizards, yellow jackets, and lady bugs
They have to get enough to eat (there’s a whole book in how hungry they can be)
They have to find a good place to build a chrysalis and then survive the whole change.
It really is the difficulties we overcome as we transform into our beautiful selves.
Happy New Year everyone. Light and love to you all!!
