May Ukulele Design: Mariposa + 15 Everyday Mantras for Self-Development

Hey butterfly, how have you been?

The past year has been tough. The pandemic came at a time that we least expected, leaving the whole world shocked and unarmed. 

All the sudden changes that you had to accept must have been anything but easy— pushed you beyond your limits, and maybe even made you question certain things along the way as well.

Yet here you are, braver, stronger, more colorful than ever.

This month’s LTD is to celebrate who you’ve become today, in spite of everything.

What you’ll find in this article:

  • The Meaning Behind the May LTD Design
  • Key features of the Wagas Ukuleles’s Premium Collection
  • 15 Everyday Mantras for Self-Development 

The Meaning Behind the May LTD Design


By definition, metamorphosis is a biological process which involves sudden and abrupt changes in an animal’s body structure through cell growth and differentiation. Figuratively, metamorphosis may be used to describe an individual's positive transformation.

Here in Wagas Ukuleles, metamorphosis is a symbol for hope. This is clearly represented in our fourth LTD design, Mariposa. Like how a caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly (aka mariposa), we’d like to give honor to those who are working hard to be better every single day. Moreover, with this design, we wish to remind you to trust the process. What may seem impossible today will soon make sense tomorrow. Just wait and sooner or later, you will then become your own butterfly.

Before I end this article, here are 15 mantras which you may ponder on daily as you course through your journey for self-development, aka your metamorphosis. Good luck!

  1. I can and I will.

  3. I am set for something greater.
  4. My troubles today are nothing compared to the joy that’s waiting for me tomorrow.
  5. I have hope in what I can be.
  6. I am whole, I am creative, and I am capable of change.

  8. I can become anything I put my mind to.
  9. I fully accept myself and I know that I am worthy of both happiness and success.
