So what happens when we need a new start? How do we actually get through the amazing transformation our Creator has for us, going from that caterpillar to becoming the soaring, beautiful butterfly? You are definitely not alone in the unpleasant struggle. A metamorphosis is defined here in a couple of valid ways:

1) A striking change in appearance, character or circumstances…usually by supernatural means.

2) a change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one.” Wow!

Are you feeling like you’re in a cocoon and wanting to burst out, gain new strength and momentum, try new things and reach your destiny? I know how that feels!!
Let’s do it!

The transformation from a caterpillar into a butterfly is quite amazing and hard to believe that it’s even possible! We envy the “butterflies” around us while wondering why we seem to be stuck in the cocoon, the confining chrysalis. As women, the change comes when we realize we have fought long and hard, strengthened our arms (wings) through the battle to finally gain the power to start letting our wings crack open the chrysalis, expend the energy necessary (for what should be, not more of what “is”), lose our old identity, friends, other relationships, negatives experience and hit it! As a caterpillar is broken down into a fluid state containing all the components necessary to mold a soaring, majestic creature, it stays the course through the breaking down and then lets the rebuilding process begin. The result is a majestic creature…You! Was it easy? NO! But it is worth it! Continue building your magnificent new wings!

Change can be daunting and many will stay in the state they are accustomed to instead of yielding to the process of change. We want to soar but are afraid to get off the ground, so we hang on to the vine where it feels secure (although restricting) instead of pushing out and flying up where we belong. When we allow God, He will lovingly put all the pieces together so the newly created you can come forth. Let’s get started. From one who has had a lifetime of trials and trauma. We can start over at any age!
