Monday Motivation and the butterfly story.

The Butterfly Story


It was the early blossoming of spring and a girl was wandering through a garden when she discovered a cocoon hanging from the branch of a tree. It was almost time for a butterfly to emerge. Fascinated with her discovery she returned to the garden daily, enthusiastic to see all that would happen and hoping never to miss a thing.

One day a small opening appeared from its cocoon and the girl saw the butterfly struggling to free itself from its cocoon and enter a new world. She watched intently – until the butterfly seemed to have stopped making progress. It appeared as if it had gone as far as possible and could go no further.

The girl made a sudden decision; she began to remove pieces of the cocoon that were obstructing the butterfly. Excited, she watched as the butterfly emerged, hoping its wings would unfold. But her excitement turned into dismay as the butterfly remained unable to move.

It was then that the girl realized what was happening: the cocoon was intended to create the struggle necessary for the butterfly to fly. In fact, it was not trying to escape… this was just nature’s way of making its wings stronger. It occurred to the girl that the butterfly would actually be grateful to the cocoon for the struggle that they would share.



I took this inspiring story from Miranda Kerr’s book ‘Treasure Yourself’. She speaks about being the impatient girl in life, trying to rush things before their time but also the butterfly, having to go through the struggles of life to become our true potential.

I personally believe I’ve been both and as I’ve got older I’m learning to really embrace my struggles and not be so impatient. (I am still working on it). If you are reading this right now and going through something I just want you to know that you will get through your struggle. You are that butterfly, working on strengthening your wings so when its your time to fly you’l be ready to go.

You have a new week and you have the power to mould it into something beautiful, don’t let your happenings destroy your happiness. Allow events to unfold and exercise that patience! Happy monday!

Monday Motivation and the bamboo tree

Hey guys!

So it’s Monday but this week I’ve decided to post a video I personally love.
I believe we all go through hard times in our life, we all get to a point where we may want to quit, we lose our faith and question ‘Why me?’ We wonder when our bad days are going to be exchanged with the good but can be left disappointed time and time again because deep down we need to understand there is no good without bad. The only difference between a bad time and a good time is your attitude towards it.
In this video we get to understand the bamboo tree and its growth. I personally find the bamboo tree such an inspiration, it serves as a reminder to me that when something is taking a while, it’s fine. For anything to last the roots need to be strong.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as me, it’s referral to God can always be exchanged with the universe or another higher being or even a family member. Whatever you believe in and feels most natural for you to do so. Also I just want to say that I don’t take any credit for this video, it was found on YouTube and I just wanted to share it with you guys!

Have a fab week.
Love&Light Always.

Monday Motivation

Morning guys!

So this week is a bit music/poetry based! Hope you enjoy. I used to do music and received a few messages this week about a link up tv I did years back. I just used the last verse of the song! I don’t say in the video BUT smiling and singing can make you feel so good! Whether you can sing or not, putting your favourite song on to start your day can help in many ways.

Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to FEED YOUR MIND! YOU HOLD THE POWER!

Love&Light Always
