A dragonfly can remain in it’s nymph stage for up to four years before fully transforming into the beautiful winged creatures we admire. They flit around in the water like little faeries, growing and becoming day by day. Perhaps some of them watch with longing as their companions take flight while they are stuck wondering when they will soar among the clouds. They may even begin to believe that their time will never come. That they are destined to remain a nymph and nothing more. Some might not even believe in the final stage, thinking swimming in the cool waters is all they were ever meant to do.
We humans are similarly complex beings in that some of us will take the full length of time to grow spiritually while others may require much less. Don’t try to force growth, your wings need to mature in their own time, life is funny like that. Follow your path with confidence that your time to fly among the stars will come. Always remember that the stage of transformation can be very painful. You must give yourself the love and patience necessary to survive it.
Rejoice in your journey.
Each special detail etched onto the wings of your soul belongs to you and you alone...
To love oneself takes work
to love oneself takes time
to love oneself takes understanding
these three tasks can challenge you to the core
if you can conquer them all
the self love you possess give you strength
this strength will ensure every challenge in life you are given
will be met with a unmovable force.
Self-love is a love I have failed to master.
They say no other love can come untill you have mastered this one.
I dissagree, I tend to love other people way more then I love me.
I know myself to well, I know all my secrets, I know all my flaws, and I know the truth behind each single action I have ever made.
Other peoples truths seem to be easier to swallow,
Other peoples truths seem to be easier to forgive,
Other peoples truths seem to be eaiser to fall in love with.
So I fall in love with other people,
to persuade them to fall in love with me,
I don’t have to.
