Out of my cocoon and flying FREE

Nov 22, 2019

A while back, when walking around Bath in the UK, I looked up to find this 🦋.

As it turns out, I have a special connection with butterflies. Without being consciously aware of my choice of words, I have often referred to myself as having “lived in a cocoon” for a large part of my life. I was letting fear stop me from fully expressing myself or reaching my potential. I was often resisting life, and chasing things almost out of desperation, while unhappy with the results. My cocoon was mostly a “safe” place, so it was easier to stay there, but it did not provide the sense of peace and fulfillment I desired.

🦋 And a couple of years ago, when it came time to do the deep change work I needed to do to transform myself and my life to the better, it’s a butterfly that I visualized! I have come out of my cocoon and life has never looked better.

🦋 It’s a butterfly that I now associate with soaring and flying and being free to be myself and do my thing, whatever I decide that is. 

So it was certainly a moment to capture when I looked up to this beautiful view on that random sunny day. 😄

 

Be free. Be you
