There is a butterfly inside each one of us waiting to come out; the challenge is to recognize that truth with grace and in faith to experience the transformation. ~ Danielle Coulanges
I read this quote and it brought a thought to my mind how the caterpillar goes into a cocoon, only to emerge as a wild and free butterfly. We all go into cocoons, the thing about humans is we decide if and when we will leave the cocoon to become the beautiful free butterfly we were meant to be. Also, I love the first quote picture above, very inspiring.
I've been in a cocoon of sorts for the past month, one of sadness and grief. Last week I finally decided to look outside of it, I saw the dim light of hope. Now I want to spread my wings and soar high above. I want to be free, free from all the sadness I had inside.
The change from a caterpillar to a butterfly is never easy, it's not meant to be, otherwise we wouldn't be able to become all that we are meant to be.
I realized something profound last night, I've always thought that I was lucky that my David re-entered my life when he did and I was but I forgot that David was even luckier to have me come into his life. He will never have another woman who will love, challenge and accept him more than I do.
I know how lucky I was and I'm grateful, I hope my David realizes how lucky he was. It's been a very long time for me to come to that knowledge and even harder for me to write and believe. I believe it now though.
