This is one of my favorite quotes. The reason why I love this quote so much is that it shows that there is always hope – there is always a better day on the horizon. This quote speaks to me on a couple of levels. One level is the thought that there is always something positive on the horizon. I am pretty sure that the caterpillar thought that his lot in life was to just always crawl around at this slow, slothful pace while everything was bustling all around him. But one day he turns into a butterfly! The sky is now the limit and he is free to go anywhere he please at whatever pace he chooses. The second level that this quote speaks to me concerns the notion of shedding the old you for a new you. We all have had our caterpillar moments. Feeling low, desiring to do more, watching the world bustle around us while we slowly move along trying to figure everything out. But then one day, you become a butterfly. Just as the butterfly is not a new creature but a different version of the caterpillar; you are not a new person, but a different version of yourself. This quote gives me great hope that, when things look dark or bleak or when life seems to be almost unbearable, there is always hope. What has you down today? Are you feeling that there is no hope? Just hold on, your day is coming.
