I went to Callaway Gardens and visited the Butterfly Garden. It was so amazing, peaceful, delightful and breathtaking. I found myself mesmerized by this one butterfly, so much that I followed her around the garden at least three times, before she settled down and allowed me to get a closer look at her. There was something about the color of her wings, they were a bright royal blue and stood out from all the other butterflies. I was immersed in her beauty. I found myself going on her journey, because I was taken in by her beauty and her flight – it seemed as if she was on a mission. It was like she was handling business – had something important to do. This butterfly didn’t have time to sit around- she had plans, purpose, goals, and if I wanted to be a part of it, I needed to follow her.
Ladies, this is how our lives should also unfold. We need to be immersed in our purpose and allow our beauty to shine from within. It is then that our purpose grows, people see our determination, our vision and they want to be a part of it – to hook their wagons to ours. They begin to talk to us about it, follow us to and from our destinations, they want to get closer to us so that they can truly soak it all in. They want to be able to say “But – I Fly”. They want to release themselves from the cocoon and fly into their destiny, because they were inspired in and through us.
Why crawl when you can walk. Why walk when you can run. Why run when you can fly. When they tell you “You can’t do it.”- tell them “But-I-Fly. Tell them “But-I-Fly on the wings of expectancy, and I expect that my dreams will come true; because I believe in the dreams and goals He (God) promised me.” You will then see how they begin to watch you fly, how your positive energy draws them in. How you will have a positive effect on others and propel them into their destiny, because you said “But – I –Fly”, and then you demonstrated to them a life lived in purpose and on purpose.
