You Are What You Eat

Day 20 of my 21 day challenge to not look at myself is completed! Now that I have exposed my link to the butterfly, it seems that is the only place my mind wants to go. I was reflecting on the diet change in the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly. I know...the irony of that! But the change holds more truth to human life than we realize. What we put in us is what we become, and if I want to be a butterfly, my diet has to change.

I had been feeding myself the wrong foods emotionally, mentally, and spiritually in the midst of the disorder. What I was putting in me was molding my identity. The thoughts and beliefs I held controlled who I was becoming. To survive as the butterfly, I cannot go back to eating what once sustained the caterpillar. Everything has to change. This time in the cocoon has played an integral role in making that happen.
