Isn’t it the only permanent thing in life? Change? Are we not here to grow?
Change is metamorphosis – big grammar, I remember the first time I heard it in primary school. Lol
“Chimdinma, you’ve changed” they say. Hian! Am I supposed to be the babes of last week?
Don’t you know that there are moments that open up your life like a walnut cracked, that change your point of view so that you never look at things the same way again. Never.
Change is growing up. And guess what, growing up is so damn SHITTY!
Plenty tears, plenty struggle, plenty adjustment, plenty critical thinking, plenty SHIT!
But nwanne m, we have to wear our helmets and plough through the mess, innit?
We grow up to be better people. Way better people.
There’s this song that I love so much… About metamorphosis ; Kelly Price.
Metamorphosis : By definition it means a developmental
change that takes place in a being after its birth causing a
transformation so thorough that when that transformation is
complete there’s no resemblance in the appearance,
movement or behavior of the former being.
Butterflies are beauties floating but that’s not the way they
begin their journey. Just as every melody starts with one
note and then grows into a Symphony.
Despise not the day of small beginnings cos the expected
end for you is something beautiful, Grand and graceful.
And though you always start with not your best, and the
process of change is uncomfortable and ugly, you can’t run
Who you are and what you were meant to do is waiting for
you at the other end of this METAMORPHOSIS.
Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly…
So nwanne m, let’s put on our helmet and plough through that mess. Growing up is shitty but then we grow up anyways – in the face of pain, joy, tears and we become BETTER PEOPLE! WAY BETTER PEOPLE!
