Chrysalis: a hard case that protects a moth or butterfly while it is turning into an adult. Did you know a butterfly goes through a life cycle of five stages? Inside the chrysalis, several things are happening, and it is not a “resting” stage. The caterpillar’s old body dies inside the chrysalis and a new body with beautiful wings appears after a couple of weeks.
I have always wanted to just feel comfortable in my own skin. It hasn’t mattered what size I’ve been. I just always found something not quite right. If this part right here was just like this….tugging at my skin, then I would be happy. If I lost just five more pounds and I will look great. I was stuck, plain and simple, just stuck. It wasn’t like I wanted to be. I tried so hard many, many, times to just put on a new attitude, a new mindset if you will. I was making my chrysalis my own little prison.
Then a major health issue took me down. Literally couldn’t get out of a chair without help. It took months of physical therapy and medications to feel like I could actually function. It was rough. There were days I was angry and depressed.
Wanna know what I learned? I’m pretty darn strong. I am stubborn and independent. Just amazed at how God made our bodies!! Sit back and think about the process of the caterpillar.
That wiggly, crawling worm turns into a beautiful winged creature!
Feeling stuck in your own chrysalis, ladies? It’s time for your transformation! STOP the comparison!! And start living like Daughter of the King that you are.
Look at all these beautiful butterflies, all unique in their own ways. There is only one YOU! Be proud of just how the Creator made YOU!!
