What Butterflies Can Teach Us About Embracing Change

Few creatures endure a transformation like the caterpillar who becomes a butterfly. Certainly, as humans, we've all faced our share of changes, and we've undoubtedly come out the other side smarter and stronger.

But some of the most trying shifts in life may still make us wish we could hide away and hibernate until the threat has passed. These quotes and photos of butterfly metamorphosis remind us that those big life changes bring about beautiful results -- inside and out.

This GPS Guide is part of a series of posts designed to bring you back to balance when you're feeling off course.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.
