Wow. I saw this quote and I thought there is so much truth to it. Many of us spend a lifetime defining who we are based on beliefs from sources outside of ourselves like comments from others, teachings, religions, chance encounters, media and more. And yet, so many people feel disconnected from ‘who they really are’ or they are very self-critical and hard on themselves. We definitely can be our own worst enemy when defining who we are.
It is my belief that I can re-create myself anew in an given moment. Everyday is a new day to redefine myself. I teach this to my clients also. Nothing, has meaning until we give it meaning. If we want a new life or a new version of how we see ourselves, we have to tell a new story and that story must be based on OUR chosen version of who we say we are, not the external world, forces, and opinions.
We get to be butterflies coming out of the cocoon everyday and every minute. This is the true embodiment of personal empowerment.
What about you? Will you be a butterfly today? Will you allow yourself to be free to be you?
