A beautiful butterfly comes out of it’s
cocoon, let’s its wings dry and flies.
It doesn’t have a choice, it can’t fold its
wings up and go back to the comfortable
cocoon for safety.
It must come out and fly.
Now the butterfly doesn’t have a choice
but you do!
The next time you are feeling stretched
and uncomfortable pat yourself on the back,
because you are growing.
If you are not stretching and feeling
uncomfortable then you are not getting
out of your cocoon.
As you are growing it is critical that you
do not judge, criticize or compare yourself
If you do, you will feel stuck and focus on
the pain of stretching, and want to go
back to your cocoon.
Treat yourself with the compassion you
would show a child that is learning to ride
a bike without training wheels.
Take a break, have a nice cup of coffee,
a walk, a deep breath, a bubble bath,
above all… be patient with yourself.
It takes time to learn to spread your
wings and fly.
