There is hardly a better animal than the butterfly to epitomise the changes in life and the transition to a new environment and a new stage in life.
Maybe you know the children’s book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, which has captivated children and adults alike for over five decades. The butterfly experiences incredible changes, for which it must expend a great deal of energy. Such a transformation is possible despite, or maybe even because of, this sapping of strength. In the protective environment of the cocoon, the caterpillar transforms into something that is fascinating and unique, ready to discover the world.
Every change in life is strenuous, but if the butterfly did not take up the challenge, it would stay in the cocoon all its life, withholding its beauty from us and the rest of the world.
One of life’s changes is moving house, something we would be happy to help with.
