Recovery Birthday

"It was the early blossoming of spring and a girl was wandering through a garden when she discovered a cocoon hanging from the branch of a tree. It was almost time for a butterfly to emerge. Fascinated with her discovery she returned to the garden daily, enthusiastic to see all that would happen and hoping never to miss a thing.

One day a small opening appeared and the girl saw the butterfly struggling to free itself from its cocoon and enter a new world. She watched intently until the butterfly seemed to have stopped making progress. It appeared as if it had gone as far as possible and could go no further.

The girl made a sudden decision; she began to remove pieces of the cocoon that were obstructing the butterfly. Excited, she watched as the butterfly emerged, hoping its wings would unfold. But her excitement turned into dismay as the butterfly remained unable to move.

It was then that the girl realised what was happening: the cocoon was intended to create the struggle necessary for the butterfly to fly. In fact, it was not trying to escape... this was just nature's way of making it wings stronger. It occurred to the girl that the butterfly would actually be grateful to the cocoon for the struggle that they would share."

Get Up, You Can, Here's My Hand

Life is going to knock you down, cover you in dirt and wrap you in darkness many of a times but it's not how many times this happens that matters, it's how many times you get back up that does. You might need to stay in the same spot a little while, crawl, walk or run to keep going but you do what you need to do and you make that damn come back like the badass butterfly transformation Queen you are. 

With each fall and rise will come growth and wisdom which are gifts, there's always good that eventually comes from any situation. That's not say that what happened never did or that it isn't/wasn't horrific or horrible and hasn't deeply effected you but to say there is another side and you deserve more than just pain, hurt and darkness. It may take some time to see or receive these gifts but I promise you they are there and they are magical, emotional and meaningful beyond words and there is gratitude to be found within that. A spark of hope is all it takes from inside or out to fight to get back up step by step and if your hope is all gone, here is my hand... I believe you can. 🐛🦋👑
