Just when the caterpillar thought her life was over she began to fly!
How often do we resist change and yet once we get there conclude it's where we needed to be.
When I was writing about being out on a limb I realised that once we're describing it as 'being out on a limb' we've passed the point of no return - there is no going back. So why do we resist for so long - the aim must be to notice we've passed the point of no return and let go.
This Rumi poem seems to fit too:
Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come? Rumi
Here's to accepting life as a butterfly.
