Why We Chose the Butterfly

The butterfly is very symbolic of the My Happy Haven experience.


We transform

*Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness and still become something beautiful.

*If you examine a butterfly according to the laws of aerodynamics it shouldn't be able to fly.  But the butterfly doesn't know that, so it flies.

*Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that.

*For a caterpillar to become a butterfly it must change.

*We are all butterflies waiting to happen.


We turn something mundane into something beautiful

*Today a caterpillar – tomorrow a butterfly. Don’t lose hope because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

*Just when the caterpillar thought its life was over, it became a butterfly

*When you feel that you’re about to fail, it might actually be that you’re about to fly.

*Life is like a butterfly – You go through changes before you become something beautiful

* "It’s the end of the world," said the caterpillar. "It’s the beginning of the world," said the butterfly.


We see the true beauty inside of her

*Never underestimate that power that is, and has always been within you.

*How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.

*Don’t settle for being a caterpillar when you have butterfly potential. Allow God to transform you from the inside out.

*Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation. Use it.

*The struggle you are in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. Don’t give up.


We are never to underestimate the power that is, and has always been within her.

*Have you ever seen a butterfly crawl back into its cocoon and become a caterpillar? Don’t go backwards.

*Like a butterfly evolving, we must love each stage we pass through. Be not judgmental of yourself. You are becoming a wondrous butterfly.

*We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.

*Like the butterfly, I have the strength and hope to believe, in time I will emerge from my cocoon ... transformed

*The butterfly counts not the months but the moments, and has time enough.

*The caterpillar dies so the butterfly could be born. And, yet, the caterpillar lives in the butterfly and they are but one.
