“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” - Maya Angelou
Butterflies have a very special personal meaning to me. When I think of the realities that a butterfly has to go through, I am amazed at the perseverance and anguish it must endure to become such a beautiful part of creation.
Do you see your struggles as beauty marks in your journey? Life is full of pain and disappointments. We can either wallow in them and be a victim, or we can grow through them to spread our wings and show our beauty.
When you choose to grow and embrace the beauty from your scars, you become free from the wounds and wounders.
Choose growth and beauty today. Persevere through the pain and grow through it. You have a life ahead of you to live. The world is waiting to see your beauty!
