Without Change, There Would Be No Butterflies

“Without change, there would be no butterflies.” –  Abhishek Tiwari

Did you know that struggle of the butterfly out of the cocoon develops the wing strength needed to fly? If the cocoon is opened, eliminating that struggle, the butterfly wings are too weak to fly, and it dies. And it is the same for us….

The growing pains of change may not be easy, but the struggle develops necessary strength for bigger steps.

If you’re struggling know this: you’re okay. You’re more than okay. Like a chrysalis into a butterfly, so too are you. The struggle is impermanent and shall pass, leaving you stronger and wiser. Deep breaths. You’ve got this.

Affirmations:

I live beautifully with uncertainty and change.

I am supported and comforted by the impermanence of life and all things.

(inspired by Pema Chodron’s “Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change“)
