Transformation as represented by the butterfly. There is no turning back to prior stages.
The challenges of both physical and emotional pain has given me the opportunity – more like forced – me to grow and change. I am a much more compassionate, forgiving person than most people. Yet, I have learned how to be assertive, advocating and fighting for my rights as needed. I’ve also learned to set priorities – “to not sweat the small stuff” – because I don’t have the energy or the time for stressing out over things and people that I cannot change.
My priorities are for accomplishing life goals, bringing beauty, joy, and satisfaction.
