Easier said for butterflies, I suppose, but still very inspiring. The beauty and new freedom of change for something bigger and better is motivating in itself. Growing and changing is something a lot of young adults fear and practically shun. With this butterfly in mind, with a brighter future in mind, with a more wholesome mature self in mind, we should embrace change and growth. And soar with grace and beauty in our new, stronger selves, as butterflies do.

Right, a good question is what can help motivate people to embrace change and become ready enough to actually let go? Can certainly be a tall order. Seems that some sort of "faith" and/or trust would be required! Thanks for your thoughtful comments.
