Change is beautiful

Successful recovery and caterpillars follow a similar path. Both inch along waiting for the world to change, only to realize that change must come from within. We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely appreciate the changes it has gone through to achieve such beauty.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Ghandi
