Moths vs. Butterflies

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Since I'm flying with the Beautiful Butterfly fall challenge team, I loved the seredipity of this recent you tube video from a wonderful Montana woman.

This is my third round as a Butterfly and until this video, I thought I was breaking out a cocoon, turns out if I'm a butterfly it's a chrysalis. Either way, I love the image or metaphor that requires finding something inside to create change. I've also learned, since joining this challenge, to be more patient with the process of change. The first time through, I really improved for my ability to drink water. That was it, not a lot of weight loss. I stayed the second round, and improved for tracking food, watching sodium and cutting out 100 calories each day.

But the best part of the challenge is watching all my team mates build their cocoons or whatever you want to call them. I learn so much from reading every story, every blog. So keep writing team, keep sharing all those good ideas. Some of us grow using a little bit of everything!

    Really like this image (I hadn't thought much beyond he butterfly part, tbh). Let's me know it's okay to make mistakes, still learning. Thanks for the great thoughts--and the video. emoticon
