Thought of the day

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes that it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” ~Maya Angelou

Just like the caterpillar goes through major changes within the surroundings of the Chrysalis before she becomes the beautiful butterfly, we also go through changes within ourselves throughout the course of our life. It is sometimes hard for us to see or admit the changes that we have gone through to achieve our own beauty. Those changes may have come about as a result of negative behavior whether brought on by ourselves or the effects of someone elses negative behavior. Or they may have come about from failing a test or losing a race. Each experience that we have helps us achieve the beauty that lies within. The way we view that beauty all depends on our attitudes.
