Flourish details butterflies and their significance in the world. Butterflies have important meanings and provide us with more than just beauty. In fact, butterflies are commonly compared to humans as we share a similar life cycle in terms of growth, transformation and transition.
Flourish aims to provide readers with a valuable learning experience through describing butterfly history and symbolism. Aside from butterfly anatomy, Flourish contains valuable stories and lessons learned from butterflies that relate to common life-stages we as humans face, such as self-growth, confidence and self-love.
Butterflies are known for being deep and powerful representations of life. They are often associated with our souls, and are seen as a form of representation for endurance, change, hope, and life by many people around the world. Flourish encapsulates what it takes for the self transformation of human and butterflies.
