When a caterpillar goes into a cocoon, she never expects the change that is about to happen. She expects to be safely tucked away from the world in quiet solitude for a bit knowing she'll have the freedom to come out when she is good and ready.
Little does she expect to be coming back into the world with wings.
Little does she expect to be returning to the world as a butterfly.
Life changes drastically for her...
She has evolved, she has literally been transformed, and is not even recognizable anymore.
When a caterpillar becomes a butterfly...
She discovers her wings and must learn how to fly (take risks). She has to get used to living life above the ground since she no longer crawls on her stomach (elevation). She has to learn how to use her new body parts effectively for her survival (resourceful). And she now has to embrace a new perspective since nothing looks the same (transformation)
Many of us just are afraid to experience transformation,
Many of us are afraid to experience growth,
Many of us are afraid of any kind of change and it cripples us...
In most cases, change is unexpected. It is primarily made up of decisions and experiences that are outside of our control. It's like when a hurricane happens we can't avoid it because it's outside of our natural scope and ability but we make adjustments and take the necessary precautions to preserve life.
Another classic, real-life example for me is when the world itself changed...
The world changed drastically during the past 18-24 months. It was a change that seemingly happened overnight and we had no control over it so we had to adjust to a new way of life.
Many of us have had to evolve and make new decisions. We've had to adjust some of the things we were doing and the way in which we did them as it was critical to our survival.
For those of us who didn't make any changes,
For those of us who never evolved,
For those of us who never transformed,
We became stuck.
Some of us are in uncomfortable places and being uncomfortable is definitely a sign that transformation is needed. So as the bible challenges us in the Book of Romans, be transformed by the renewing of your mind and do it daily.
Transformation happens by taking small steps which create massive action. Massive action then births the transformation. So, even as change happens think about how you can experience it today.
Change is inevitable, growth is optional but transformation is a conscious decision.
What are you holding on to has caused you to become stuck?
What are you afraid to change that keeps you from evolving so that you can live your best life?
