Is your adult “you” like your “child” you? Which “Animal” are you?

I feel like a completely different person than who I was as a child. Some things are the same, but I’ve changed.

  • I hated public speaking, I love it now
  • I wasn’t that athletic, now I am
  • I lacked confidence, now I have it
  • I didn’t apply myself academically, I do now
  • I was clueless with fixing things, now I can

Are you more or less like who you were as a child? Here is a fun and quirky way to look at it: Animals. Which one can you identify with?

1. A turtle – you are about the same as you were as a child, but a little out of your shell and comfort zone

2. A snake – you have shed your old skin and slither in newness

3. A fish – you left the aquarium for deeper waters

4. A butterfly – you have completely transformed from a caterpillar, spreading your wings to fly

I see myself as more of a butterfly. I have grown up, developed, and matured into something more.

Is there a different animal to describe your transformation? Let me know. Have fun with it!

1 Corinthians 13:11, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
