Day 2: Meaning behind my blog name

A few years ago I was really struggling with some things and one day I was talking to a good friend about it all. I told him about the frustrating feelings I was having as I worked to make changes in my life and he compared my current situation to that of a caterpillar and a butterfly. A caterpillar enters the cocoon a caterpillar but then wakes up and suddenly he's not a caterpillar anymore. He wonders what these things are on his back and what are they used for. Then he slowly flaps one of them, then the other, he decides to test them out and give them a try, before you know it he is flying around as a beautiful butterfly. I really loved this analogy. Life is all about making changes, trying new things, and growing from a caterpillar into a butterfly. I chose to name my blog after this analogy because it is a constant reminder that every day is a new day to learn how to fly.
