Focusing on something in nature, big or small, is a way to practice mindfulness. It can also be a part of a practice of accepting change. Who else besides me resists change? What good does that do us? Change happens anyway. Accepting this brings peace.
How have you changed in your healing process? It’s hard to recognize growth when you are still in the midst of pain and struggle! What if you thought of yourself as transforming, like the butterfly? What if you could find something to value each step of the way? Me, I dig caterpillars as much as butterflies!
May we find time to notice and honor something as it is and appreciate that it has and will change.
