There has always been something about the transformation of a caterpillar to a butterfly that has fascinated me. What would appear to be the stages of death, become a graceful process of transformation into the butterfly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over and over again we go through this process in our lives. Have you ever felt like nothing has really changed, but then you're reminded of something from your past and you realize how different things are, how different you are? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is one of the most beautiful things I have witnessed in myself and had the pleasure of witnessing in others through being a part of their healing. To stand witness to someone's healing transformation is an overwhelming gift that continually resonates in my heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wanted to share the biggest thing that has allowed me the space and acceptance to have such rapid transformation and to be proud of the person I am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **softness** ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Being soft when it’s so easy to be hard is a super power in this world.
Fun fact: the opposite of hard is not easy, its soft.
Read that again.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To be soft with yourself, your thoughts, and the ones around you, allows the space for exploration, the safety to be vulnerable, and to connect with the things and people you desire. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trying to force change, connection, or transformation will only create separation from the things that you desire. Be soft with yourself, be soft with your connections, be soft with your words, and be soft with your love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am humbled over and over again with the power softness and vulnerability has played in my life. Like the butterfly effect that ripples out, the softer I walk, the greater the impact I leave.
