I've always liked butterflies. When their life-span was explained to me using a Biblical reference, I could relate to them very well. And again, butterflies can explain my recent life change.
I could say my teenage years were like a caterpiller - I was still finding 'myself'. Then I went into a cocoon, ready to emerge as the real self I wanted the world to know. But my husband didn't want me to share this true self of mine and kept trying to force me into this cocoon, while I struggled for freedom. Finally, I fled this abusive relationship, taking my daughters with me to a shelter. We spent time there (a lot of time!) healing. They didn't deserve the verbal abuse either and needed the opportunity to live in a healthy environment.
Now I am truely free to spread my wings and be the real ME - like a beautiful butterfly!!

Butterfly Totem
The butterfly is a colorful, delightful symbol of transition and growth. People with the butterfly totem are joyful people who appear to others as bright and cheerful. Butterfly people tend to be optimistic and are always looking for ways to grow and improve. Butterflies teach us that change is positive and should be embraced.

Personal Reflection...
Butterflies are born after a period of struggle. Without the struggle the wings would not be strong enough to allow the butterfly to take wing. Often our challenges in life give us the ability to "spread our wings" and reach new heights. When butterflies appear to you, embrace change with optimism and joy for the experience.
