Admit the Changes

Saturday, March 30, 2013

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly,
but rarely admit the changes
it has gone through
to achieve that beauty.

-Maya Angelou

Consider and be proud of all the changes YOU have gone through in order to be where YOU are today - in this moment!

    Lovely thought, lovely message, and a lovely concept - not only can we be proud of the changes, we can honor them and ourselves for making them. Thanks for sharing this - I really enjoyed it.

    This is a good quote. It's also nice to remember that the butterfly was a beautiful creature in its own way before it metamorphosed. It may not have had the flash and physical attributes of traditional beauty, but nonetheless, it was a creation of the divine and thus an expression of divine perfection. I need to remember that about myself. I may not be a butterfly yet, but I'm still beautiful, as are we all!
