The Quote Challenge

I was over on Ms. Dixie Wrecked’s blog, Smiling Through the Evil, and saw that they had accepted a “Quote Challenge.”  They didn’t challenge anyone else, but when I read it, I thought, “Me, me, Call on me!!”   I love quotes – as you may have noticed!

So I took up the challenge, and then I didn’t do anything with it.  Which is kind of typical of me, honestly, as you might know.  But I didn’t forget about it!!

A day or two after i wrote about the changes in my life and how it felt, I ran across this quote:

“Butterflies are beautiful, but the process of emerging from the chrysalis and spreading your wings can hurt like fucking hell. But still, you will survive the transformation (over and over again) and you will fly. Remember this when it hurts the most. This is the metamorphosis, the going down to liquid, and the rising again. It’s no joke – but damn, it’s one hell of a journey.”
― Jeanette LeBlanc 

Don’t you love that?  It’s so frigging true…

  1. It is very true, isn’t it? Having the right mindset can really help, especially when the metamorphosis is one that life has forced on you, not one you’ve imposed upon yourself.

    • Yes – having the right mindset can make a huge difference in how it feels. I can’t quite decide if self-inflicted is more painful or less painful, you know? It’s interesting.
