Not long after separating from my husband (who am I kidding - he left), my sister gave me a beautiful card that hangs on my fridge to remind and inspire me. It simply says, “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over… it became a butterfly”. I want to become the “butterfly” I know is there in me. I just feel totally stuck in this cocoon. Sometimes I think I’m even content (briefly) to just withdraw from the world and stay a fat, squishy caterpillar. But when I do peek outside, I see a life I want to be a part of. I’m READY TO EMERGE and fly! Now, can someone please help me out of this damn cocoon… it’s a little tight…must have shrunk in the dryer…anybody?…hello?
