We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty – Maya Angelou
These tiny, fluttering creatures are really teachers in disguise. Here are five bits of life wisdom, inspired by the beautiful butterfly.
Be patient. All good things come with time. We are growing, even when we cannot feel it. With great patience come great rewards.
Be open to change. Be willing to be transformed. Without change, nothing beautiful would happen. You have to give up who you are to become who you might be.
Be light and free. Have some fun. Float from each open door to the next. Look for the color, humor and joy in daily life.
Be spontaneous. Go wherever your wings take you. Fly forward with confidence. Have the courage to seize new opportunities.
Be in the moment. Look around. Enjoy the flowers, the sun and the breeze. The present moment is a gift for us to enjoy.
