“Within you is the power to rise above any situation or struggle, and transform into the brightest, strongest version of you ever.”
I found this lovely quotation and it seemed apt. I have struggled to find out who to attribute it to, as there were so many different sources, so perhaps the power of the words and the power of social media have combined to both immortalise and anonymise them. Nonetheless, it seemed fitting for the start of spring with its themes of rebirth and renewal. In addition, the butterfly is always symbolic of transformation, and so the image and the quote seemed like a good pairing.
We took a few of these images and I have used one of the others on my blog before. Although this one is similar, I have added a different filter to change the feel and I suppose that fits in with the idea of regeneration, and of adapting and changing, to work with what you have. I like the sense of opportunity which comes with the spring. The period of enforced isolation we are all currently going through has meant that I have become very much focussed on the small things around me.
I feel that the pace of life has slowed enough for me to appreciate some of the things that I might have missed before. It feels simpler, and with that has come a time of reflection which has allowed me to adapt somewhat to the various changes that have come along. I would not say that this has finished and each day brings a new challenge. This has been a difficult in many ways, but in others, I hope that it will leave me stronger, and maybe even brighter.
There have certainly been lots of elements which have led to me struggling in a number of areas, and I am not naive enough to think that I am really over the worst. But what I do hold on to is that fact that I have the power to rise above it. That belief is nestled deep within me and is part of my ability to morph and change through learning which allows me to be the best version of myself.
Change is difficult. It can feel isolating and lonely and confusing, but the process of making sense of it, of taking stock of what you have and making the necessary changes allows you to grow, and sometimes that is just what we need. We are not designed to remain static. It is important to use your creativity to fly, and although sometimes you don’t know exactly where your wings will take you, you usually know when it is time.
