“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.” anon
This is all about perspective. Just as an acorn doesn’t know how to grow into anything different than an oak tree, the caterpillar knows only to transform into a beautiful butterfly. I chose the butterfly to represent what Rejuvenate is all about – how we can all transform ourselves, shed the story or history of baggage that we drag around with us, & become the butterfly we ‘know’ we can be. A few years ago I was at a huge convention in Las Vegas listening to Jim Rohn, a well-known personal development and motivational speaker. He was talking about a caterpillar crawling. I remember circling the word crawling several times because I felt that was where I was at, at that time. Then he talked about the caterpillar transforming into a butterfly. It was such a vivid time in my life that I remember that occasion well.
What are you wanting to do today that will take you towards your dream? Each day is a ‘brand new baby day.’ As Henry David Thoreau said all those years ago, “If one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams, endeavouring to live the life they are imagining, one passes an invisible boundary. All sorts of things begin to occur that never otherwise would have occurred. One begins to meet with success unexpected in common hours.” Move forward with faith/confidence one step, one day at a time, knowing like the butterfly that you can become your dream whatever your age.
