There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller

Are you holding yourself in a caterpillar state? Afraid that the butterfly in you will never flutter free? I know the feeling. Why is it so easy to hold back, to discount dreams and talents because others have surged ahead of you? Thoughts of how others have better credentials and are more qualified keep us grounded.


That was me until a butterfly friend, who had heard enough of me putting myself down, literally got up from the table, shut the door to the room, stalked back, and pointed her finger in my face. Then she listed off all I have to offer because of the experiences in my life. What she said made sense. Sure, I may not have a Ph.D or a B.A. after my name, but I have lived life. It is what Tom Bodett once said, “In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.” Well, we’ve all been taught at the knee of life. We’ve all learned lessons. Now, we have to value those lessons that are unique to us and share what we’ve learned to help others as they travel through life.

I may not be a butterfly yet, but I can say I’m in the chrysalis preparing to fly.

How about you? Are you ready to redefine yourself? It’s time to fly!
