How Much Do You Want To Be A Butterfly?

“There once was a caterpillar named Yellow who was trying to figure out what to do with her life. One day Yellow discovered another caterpillar who seemed to be caught in a mess of thin, hairy fibers. When Yellow asked if she could help, the caterpillar explained that he was making a cocoon so he could become a butterfly.

Yellow had never heard the word butterfly before, but it made something inside her leap. “What is a butterfly?” she asked.

The other caterpillar described the beauty and majesty of a butterfly and explained, “It’s what you are meant to become.”

Yellow was skeptical. “How can I believe there’s a butterfly inside you or me when all I see is a fuzzy worm?” But she could not leave the thought alone. “How does one become a butterfly?” she finally asked.

The other caterpillar answered, ‘“You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.'” (Trina Paulus)

Are you willing to give up who you are now for who you are meant to become?
