Transformation of the Butterfly

Hi GratiDude Community, 

This little letter is about why I chose to include the word “Butterfly” in creating the Gratitude Butterfly name. The reason is because they are all about transformation. For me, bringing Gratitude into my life was about transforming and retraining my brain to see the beauty and blessings in myself and in my life.

I love to show how, just like a butterfly… To get to this stage, we must transform from the caterpillar. We go into a dark space and in this darkness is where we totally transform. The darkness / cocoon is where we shed our old skins. We let go of our old beliefs, our negative thoughts and all that is heavy and keeping us weighted down. 🌵💐

Then something amazing happens. Our darkness begins to crack and Light starts to flow in. We feel like we can breathe again.  The weight and heaviness is gone, and our wings are able to emerge.

We are free to fly.

In our old caterpillar form, we can only fly if someone else carries us. But they can easily drop us and down we fall.  As the Butterfly, we have our own wings to carry us. We are in control and free to soar high, and if we start to fall, it is ourselves/our own wings that save us.

So whatever stage you are at, trust the process.

You are so beautiful, inside and out: whatever part of the transformation stage you are in!
