Your Unique Wings

finding your wayI wonder about the life of the butterfly. They’re such beautiful and delicate creatures. And yet, within their beauty lies such great strength, a strength I am intrigued by and wanting to emulate. During my writing of A Place Called Peace, I researched the scientific purpose of butterfly wings, and compared how their purpose relates to the human experience. My findings were fascinating.

Here’s a snippet of what I discovered …

When a caterpillar wraps itself inside the cocoon, it is fully aware of what it will become once it reforms and emerges as a butterfly. It immediately gets to work at putting the wings to use. The butterfly is fully aware of its demise if it doesn’t put its natural gifts to use.

Unlike the butterfly, we do not enter the world with ideas of our natural gifts. Rather, many of us are brought up in an environment which usually dictates which direction we will go. Individual gifts are often over-looked while we are groomed into adulthood. Individuality takes the back-seat to conformity. Living a life contrary to your truth will put you in hiding. For myself, it took many years of unhappiness before I realized what was missing from my life – the discovery and acknowledgment of my own unique gifts – my butterfly wings.

Just like the wings of the butterfly, we all have our own unique gifts, and by using these gifts, you will open your world to entirely new ideas, hopes and dreams. Take the time to discover your wings so you can fly!
