The book begins with a lovely parable that teaches that sometimes, challenges and struggles are exactly what we need in our lives; that we should not see every struggle and challenge as a negative because just as a caterpillar has to struggle out of its cocoon, it can then open its wings and fly …
‘I wish to share my inspiration with you, so that you will treasure and believe in yourself, have faith in your abilities, accept who you are and uncover your own unique gifts. We all have wings, but it is up to each one of us to have the courage to fly. My hope is that these words and the affirmations included will help empower you to reach for your dreams even in difficult times. With action, anything in life is possible’. Miranda Kerr
