I saw this quote recently and just loved it, because it is such a great positive message of hope –
“I have hope in who I am becoming.” (Charlotte Erikson)
Shortly after saving that quote, I got this graphic in a daily email that I get –
What a great message it carries, too.
I don’t think that you necessarily have to come to a cathartic event, such as entering the chrysalis state like the caterpillar does when it turns into a butterfly, in order to change and become the butterfly that you hope to be. The point is to consciously decide to make the commitment to the changes in your life that will alter the trajectory of it. Commit to turning into the new you.
Women may find the illusion to changing into a butterfly easier to accept than men, but the point is not one of changing one’s outer beauty so much as the inner you changing to become a better and more beautiful person inside – a person that others want to be around and an example for others to follow.
Maybe you can start each day with a little prayer such as,” God give me the strength and perseverance to become the person that I know that I can be.” Just putting yourself in that frame of mind each morning will make each day better and get you one step closer to who you are becoming.
So, have hope in who you are becoming and welcome the change; not into a butterfly, but into the new and improved you. It’s a beautiful thing.
