Transformation matters

“Adding wings to caterpillars does not create butterflies, it creates awkward and dysfunctional caterpillars. Butterflies are created through transformation.” ~Stephanie Marshall

It’s never the superficial changes we try to paste onto the surface that matter. It’s the hard, focused work that we put into true transformation that enable us to become our best selves.

Growth is not failure

“Don’t waste another second thinking that you’re failing when really all you’re doing is growing.” ~Chani Nicholas

Growth, by definition, leads us into the unknown, the unfamiliar, and the uncomfortable. It’s easy for that discomfort to make us think that we are failing as we find ourselves outside of the what we’ve always known and done. Don’t let yourself be fooled! Growth may be uncomfortable, but it’s always good!
