One of the symbols that we use prominently and often at Fly-Chicks, Inc. is a butterfly. We were recently asked
“What does the butterfly mean?” Well, we were happy to answer that question!
The butterfly imagery is important because of what a butterfly’s journey symbolizes:
- Before a butterfly emerges from the cocoon, there is a struggle. The more difficult the struggle, the more beautiful the wings.
- A butterfly denotes “persistence” and “tenacity” — both are needed to emerge from spiritual, emotional, and physical struggles intact — and stronger than before.
- Thus, our message is this: Without the struggle, there are no wings!
This is why the entire premise of all that we do centers around storytelling. When women share their stories, generations can be healed.
So — be encouraged and know that as your journey continues, you do not walk it alone. That which was meant to “break” you will often “bend” you in the direction that you were meant to go — if you allow God to lead you through it.
