I’m totally fascinated about butterflies and the transformation they go from egg to caterpillar to butterfly….. it reminds me of our lives and the various life stages we go through ourselves.
At every stage there are always life lessons to learn. I feel unless we ‘get the lesson’ immediately, we experience many scenarios in our life to choose to ‘suffer and live in fear’ or ‘to embrace it, be grateful, learn, grow and move on’
Personally this week I’ve had 2 extreme events occur, that I will share with you to using them as an example to inspire you to always look within yourself, to always act from your intuition. I was publicly acknowledged and given an award, which I was very grateful for. The very next day I was publicly attacked for my health journey, what I had achieved and what I believed in. These were 2 seperate events and unrelated, In the past I would have been riding high on emotion from the first event and then completely hit rock bottom as a result of the second event.
Instead, I chose something differently. I knew who I had become on the ‘inside’. I know who I am, the work I have done and will continue to do. I no longer need validation from others to feel good or bad about myself, because I know who I am and what I stand for.
It all comes down to this ALWAYS. Events will come and go in our life always. It’s how we perceive them and the meaning we choose to put on it that will set us free and allow us to spread our wings and fly, or keep us stuck in the past, with our old limiting patterns, thoughts and beliefs.
You ALWAYS have a choice.
So today, decide to look at things differently. Ask yourself:-
- What can I learn from this?
- How can I grow?
- Who do I NOW choose to be?
It’s time to spread your wings and fly.
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
