i heard this once and it's forever etched into my mind.
(I can't remember where I heard it, so if it's from you please remind me!)
When a butterfly is emerging out of its cocoon, it needs to push, fight, struggle it's way out. Why? Because that action is what gives its wings the strength to fly.
Someone did an experiment in which they cut open the cocoon for the butterfly so that it could peacefully emerge - and guess what? It was unable to fly. Its wings never had the opportunity to build strength.
if you're struggling, if you're in that dark cocooning place, it's not for nothing.
your time to fly is coming.
You just might not be able to see it yet.
Keep going. Keep building your strength. Keep dancing through it.
reporting live from a cocoon-in-process,
p.s. There are 4 more spots open in the Immersion program on April 29th. It's an opportunity to be in the cocoon alongside fellow humans who get it, and to receive my guidance and artistic direction as you develop a dance piece that reflects your process and supports your emergence. Registration closes April 17th. Learn more and join me here.
