Transformation

As spring arrives so does transformation. Spring brings beauty and everyone loves beautiful things. But beauty isn’t always about what it looks like on the outside. Yes I know that is a cliche thing to say but it’s true. The beauty is often found in the transition from “ugly” to beautiful. Take winter and spring for example. Winter (when there is no snow) is brown and ugly because everything is dead, but as spring arrives we start to see plants bloom and animals come out (even pesky mosquitoes). I believe that the transformation is often the most beautiful part. I have had my own share of transformations as I am sure many of us have.

I was adopted at a young age. I am much older now and have lived with my family for 12+ years, but I am STILL transforming. Everyday I wake up and I face 100 fears. I constantly tell myself truths instead of lies to become the person I know I am meant to be. I fight to transform into a better version of myself. I find that it is all the times I have messed p and fallen down that make me beautiful. Another example of the beauty in transformation would be the seniors of 2020. Their school year has been cut short and many things take from them. While I feel sorry for them I choose to look at it this way. Students have more time now to work (if they have a job), pick up old (or new) hobbies, or simply spend time or reconnect with family.

There is so much beauty to be found in this world of “ugly” one must simply look for it. Or as Albus Dumbledore would say “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.” So I encourage everyone to start looking at things a little differently and “turn on the light”.

And always remember,

Every little thing is gonna be okaye.

  1. I like this line: The beauty is often found in the transition from “ugly” to beautiful.

    I agree — the beauty is often in the transition.

    PS — I love that you included a quote from Harry Potter.

  2. This is a lifelong process: “I constantly tell myself truths instead of lies to become the person I know I am meant to be.” Yes, most of us need to be mindful of that. Transformation isn’t always visible. Another truth. The transition of Winter to Spring reveals important things to ponder. I am glad you noticed and shared.

  3. I’m impressed with people who work hard on their lives… really taking the time to figure out who they are and what they need to move forward … so bravo for not just staying put… and we will read as many posts as you write 🙂

    I feel too that this is a special time… the “best” of times and the worst- for many people…

    Moving from winter to spring is very unique this year… and tomorrow we should be getting some snow after an almost snowless winter. What can I say…

  4. Hello–so nice to meet you through #sosmagic! Ohmygoodness, your second paragraph–the telling of truths instead of lies to become the person you are meant to be–those words stopped me. I am sitting and reflecting on the gift in those words, and the agency they are inspiring within myself. Thank you for sharing them.

  5. “I find that it is all the times I have messed up and fallen down that make me beautiful.” I love this line. That you can see beauty in your own mistakes and missteps is no small thing. Your quote reminds me of the power we have to choose our lens–to choose to see the beauty by turning on the light or sit in the darkness. Thank you!
