The Cocoon Effect: Transforming Through Hardship

“You can be shattered and you can put yourself back together piece by piece until one day you wake up… And no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot fit into your old life anymore. You are like a snake trying to fit into old, dead skin, or a butterfly trying to crawl back into the cocoon.” ~ Glennon Doyle, Love Warrior

“One day you wake up and realize that you have put yourself back together completely differently. That you are whole, finally, and strong — but you are now a different shape, a different size.” ~ Glennon Doyle, Love Warrior

Me and one of my teachers of unconditional love, Emma
