We all know that a caterpillar has the ability to transform itself into a butterfly. A caterpillar itself is not the most beautiful creature you will ever see, yet a caterpillar knows that it won’t stay this way forever as it knows that one day it will transform itself into one of the most beautiful creature on earth. However, before it can transform, a caterpillar must go through the process called metamorphosis whereby it must stay in a cocoon for period of time. Most of the process will take about 5 to 21 days depending on condition before the caterpillar is fully transform into a butterfly. And when the time is right, it will break free from its cocoon and ready to show off its beautiful wings and fly living its life.
Here’s the thing, we are all like caterpillars wanting to be transform into a butterfly however without wanting to go through the period of being in a cocoon. Some of us are not satisfy with our current situation and wanting to change it fast, to reach our dream successfully without going through too much hassle. The thing is this, just as a caterpillar needs to go through the process of being in the cocoon in order to achieved the beauty of a butterfly, we as well need to go through the process of being in the cocoon of life to achieve the beauty of our dreams.. And this is our process, we all have to face failures, setback, disappointment, struggles and hardship in life. All these things are developing us, molding us and evolving us into someone who is so much more capable of accomplishing our goals.
Though the beauty may be in the butterfly, the struggle and growth occur in the cocoon.Unknown
Here is another point, the caterpillar was not worried but was patient while it was in the cocoon because the caterpillar trust itself in the process. Therefore, we too should not be concerned and must be patient enough to trust ourselves in the process. Keep reaching for your dreams despite facing rejection, criticism and failures. These are the moment where we are in the process of being in the cocoon of life. However, one fruitful day will come when we have finally achieved our dreams and goals. And when it comes, that is the day we break free from our cocoon and fly high in life.
