I finished my latest sculpture and I have been inspired to call it, “Metamorphosis”, especially after reading this……. (written by a beautiful woman, named Pearl, from Magnolia Pearl website).
“As a woman, I believe we only get better as we get older. However, there is a fragile time for women right before we evolve into our “soul power” stage. I am 47 and it’s starting to become quite evident that A -something beautiful is about to happen or B – I might lose my mind. I’m at a fragile place in life where I feel like a Monarch butterfly in a rainstorm. The rain has washed all the powder from my wings leaving me raw and exposed to the elements and life. Keeping my grace as a butterfly in this space is not easy, but I’ll find the closest flower, hang on tight and hope that the wind doesn’t carry me away.”
I think there are many women who feel this way, especially when women are in their forties or fifties, but what I have come to know is, that the “fragile” time she speaks of, doesn’t have to last long at all. We only stay “fragile” until we make the decision to start setting ourselves free of anxiety and fear. This is the best time to grow into our truest selves, by drop old ways of thinking and being. A metamorphosis into loving ourselves and our changing bodies.
