I am Emerging as a Beautifully Strong Butterfly

Come read Dee’s insightful and inspiring description of her life to that of the caterpillar and the butterfly and the blessing of hope and dreams!

Thriving Not Surviving

For people who have known me for at least a few years, what is most notable about my life is the change I have undergone in just a short period of time. To use a (possibly overused) simile, my life has been like that of a butterfly.

Up until the time of my divorce I was just a caterpillar, going through life, just getting by.

I did the things I thought I was supposed to do, but I didn’t grow or change much during that time. I didn’t think I had to, I was just a caterpillar, that was who I was supposed to be.
