BE MORE // CATERPILLAR

I’m going to be completely honest with you right now. Last weekend I woke up in a fluster.

Like, things really got to me.

I found myself in a panic.

Let me tell you why…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I run two businesses. This one here, and another. The other relates to weddings.⠀⠀

I’m a Marriage Celebrant & Event Host.

It is my job to create and officiate bad-ass-beautiful wedding ceremonies.

It’s my duty to make others’ dreams come true.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Except right now, a lot of those dreams are being postponed. COVID19 has lost me thousands in cash. I am one of the very many people who has been hit hard financially by the crisis.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And so on Saturday – I freaked.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I choose to run my own business. I choose to be self-employed. I choose to choose my own hours.

I choose the freedom that I have…

But I didn’t choose this year to be such a financial fuck up. This wasn’t it in the plan. For any of us.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then I saw this quote:

“A caterpillar grows wings in times of isolation.”

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fuck yeah, it does!

And right now I’m feeling like some huge hairy caterpillar; shuffling along hoping for the moment I can find the spot to build my chrysalis.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because whilst these are scary times for the purse strings, I have to remember: they are not forever. They are just for now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Those weddings of mine – they haven’t been cancelled. They’ve just been postponed. And I, along with those glorious couples, will raise my glass up high NEXT summer and say cheers for knowing that good things come to those who wait.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Next year is going to be killer for business.
Next year – I shall be more butterfly.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Corona Virus is not my downfall. It is only my cocoon… and I am a caterpillar.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, panic over.

I am reminding myself every day, that these wings will be beating even brighter on the other side! 🦋

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tell me:
How can you be more caterpillar?
What does the corona chrysalis have in store for YOU?

 


Feeling a little lost in the moment?
Getting in a flap about your future?
You KNOW you’re a butterly,
but you’re struggling to spread your wings…?

Then now is the time to commit.
