… before it gets better.

No one ever said making change is easy. Growth takes hard work.

To become a beautiful butterfly, you have to live through the dark phase of the cocoon.

Giving up and staying in the cocoon isn’t an option. The struggle to get free of the cocoon is the struggle of transformation. How badly do you want to transform your life? Accepting the status quo will never get you out of that cocoon. To get to the light, often times you have to fight your way through the darkness.

Transformation is a lifelong process; it doesn’t happen overnight. Transformation is a series of steps that tend to make things appear worse before they can become better. It’s like any detox process, in order to cleanse the body and heal, the infection or toxins need to first rise to the surface before they can leave the body. So the darkness is temporarily exaggerated before the light of transformation can prevail.

To become something great, you have to do something great. Being great means using your inner strength to fight your way through your own cocoon of darkness. Remember giving up is never an option. Just when the catepillar was ready to give up his struggle, he transformed into a beautiful butterfly and flew away.

It doesn’t happen overnight, that’s for sure.

It takes time for us to transform the very parts of ourselves that we deem unlovable and unmanageable. We are all a “work in progress” – some more than others. It is in the acknowledgment of who you really are that sets you on the path of uncovering your true self.

As Blake Lively has quoted, “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a beautiful butterfly.” Transformation happens right underneath our noses. It is a process. A process of uncovering ourselves. A process where we peel back the superficial layers to expose the vulnerability and real beauty of who we are.

Just when you think your “dark” couldn’t get darker, you crash and hit rock bottom only to discover that you never needed the very cocoon you were suffocating in. The cocoon was of your own building and making. Just when you realize you had no room left to move or breathe in that space, remarkably you are freed. The moment you decide you are ready, your wings take flight. And in that moment, the beautiful new butterfly is free to breathe new life into his journey.

What’s holding you back?
