The beauty of butterflies

This picture was taken of me a few years ago. Here I am, showing my tattoo of a mama butterfly guiding her three little butterflies – a symbolization of my girls and I.

This here was my first tattoo, and I remember every second of that day getting it! I wanted butterflies (each a different color) because they are beautiful, free, and different.

Every night, I would tell my girls a story about butterflies and how they all came in different shapes, colors, and sizes. And how they are all different. It is exactly how each and every one of us are in this world today. We are ALL different. We ALL have our own stories and different ways of handling situations.

My children bring me joy – and yes, even frustrations – but it’s a part of life. It’s a part of change. And as long as I guide them through the right path, they will soar and fly as high as they can! ❤️

A quote from Jeffrey Glassberg:
“Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine.”

We ALL deserve sunshine! There may be times of rain, but together, life can be beautiful!!

Trust …

“It can take a long time to build trust.
Yet, it can be easily destroyed overnight…”

– Sandra Scala

Trusting someone is hard,
especially when you’ve been hurt,
over and over.

BUT, you know what?
There is hope, and there is trust!
It just takes time, and patience.

Once the trust is earned, keep it.
Don’t tell secrets. Don’t tell lies.
It can be easily destroyed overnight.

Avoid unnecessary drama.
Avoid the people who bring you down.
This will, in fact, lead to happiness!! ❤️

Your Choice. Your Decision.

What truly defines us?

Well, clothing doesn’t define who we are.
And looks don’t define who we are either.
Nor does a fancy car, or a big house.

Sure, it feels good to dress up, and “look” pretty.
Fancy suit, beautiful dress, and all.
Sure, it feels good to put makeup on and “feel” pretty.

However, not everyone can afford to live luxuriously.
And not everyone can find the time, or energy.

Not everyone wants to change who they are, in order to please others.

Not everyone wants to hide their identity, in fear of being ridiculed.

Some people choose to pretend.
Some people choose to change.
And some people do choose to hide.

WHY? This should NOT be!!
Why should materialism matter?

We have choices.
We have the choice to follow our dreams.
We have the choice to be kind.
We have the choice to lend a helping hand.
We have the choice to say yes, or no.

AND, we also have decisions to make.
We make the decision to follow our dreams.
We make the decision to be kind.
We make the decision to lend a helping hand.
We make the decision to say yes, or no.

Do not allow fear to take control of the choices you’ve made.
And continue to make.

Do not allow fear to take control of the decisions you’ve made.
And continue to make.

Do not allow fear to tell you that you are not good enough or strong enough.
You ARE good enough and you ARE strong enough.
To handle whatever it is, that may cross your path.

Sure, there may be bumps (and big ones).
But you have survived this far.
Yes…you ARE a survivor!!

Be proud and hold your head high.
Take control of the fear and do not let it consume your inner beauty.

It’s your INNER BEAUTY that defines you.

Not a sickness you may be fighting.
Not daily or life challenges you may face.
Not the negativity of others.

It’s not the size of your body.
It’s not a pretty dress, or a fancy suit.
It’s not a fancy car.
And it’s definitely not a big house.

Believe in yourself.
Your choices. Your decisions.
Your way of life.
And don’t ever think less.

Let’s untangle our mind, and set it free…
