beyond the box…

September 3, 2010

Cocoons are necessary, but wings are so much better…

There is safety in the box to transform into whatever it is you are meant to me, and there is time to try on and settle into your most beautiful self, but the out, the outside is where it’s at. Trusting in your ability and putting it all out there, come what may…gather your courage and do it. You have everything you need…

Been taking so many growing risks lately…and it feels scary and really, really good.

our family totally geeked out over watching “Mrs. Whittles” (i have NO idea where that name came from) make her chrysalis and hatch this week, the wonder of nature is never wasted on this crew. I think Jorge was the most excited. Fly on ole’ girl!

    There is so much beauty and wisdom in this post. Thank you, Patience. And thank you, too, Mrs. Whittles.

    Ohhhhhhh! Caterpillar metamorphosis is one of my favorite things. That first photo is so insanely lovely.

    One cool thing is that the chrysalis isn’t something they build outside themselves, it’s part of themselves that slowly becomes unnecessary as they change inside, just like we can shed our own old skins when the time is right.
