Metamorphosis of Self Through Trial and Error

As per my burnout post, I have given a little more thought and have discovered an analogy for me in my life's lessons and struggles. I am not so much a hermit, though I do find myself appreciating some alone time to sort through my internal workings. Rather, I have decided, whether I am a moth or butterfly, I go through my trials and eat them up and become fat, tired and weary with them. I take in just enough more to enter into my cocoon where I process, which is longer or shorter, based on what length is needed for how much stuff is getting mulled over. When all is said and done, I come out on the other side transformed to fly about and appreciate all of the business that has been undertaken to get to that point. Oftentimes, it doesn't last as long as one might hope, but the appreciation is still evident and present.

This is me, for better or worse, this is how I function and I am grateful for the people in my life that make it possible. Whether by direct influence, or by a simple gesture. Thank you to all the people who know me and truly love me just the way I am.
