Last year was difficult for me, full of unhealthy situations and many challenges. Yet, I was certain the difficulties were leading me to a better place. After all, challenges show us our potential and encourage us to keep growing.
To keep a positive perspective, I bought myself a bracelet with a butterfly charm – a simple reminder that I was moving through a period of transformation. Change is hard work, but good things waited for me once the time was right to leave my chrysalis. When I was ready, I would fly, I told myself. The butterfly charm became a touchstone of positivity, and I looked at it daily for encouragement.
Then, a friend shared that she was going through great challenges in her life as well. Immediately, I realized she needed a butterfly of her own. I gave my butterfly bracelet to her. It didn’t take long for me to realize it was the right thing to do. She said wearing
it gave her goosebumps! Although I missed my butterfly, any positivity I had felt was amplified the moment I gave the positivity away. Like a butterfly, it had transformed into something even more beautiful. I watched it fly to great heights.
