Leading the way!

So many things that I see when I look at this picture, from the yellow tulip managing to shine in a sea of pink tulips, to the yellow tulip leading the way for all the others to follow! Either way, it brought up for me that sometimes being different can be hard, but it is always beautiful, no matter how you look at it! Think of a way you are different and embrace it, even let it shine so that others can see just how beautiful your difference is, and you’ll let them know that they too, can revel in their differences!

Stay well.

I am Butterfly.

I am Butterfly.

No matter if my wings are open or closed.

No matter if I am midair or clinging flowers by my toes.

No matter my purpose I go where the wind blows.

 

I am Butterfly.

My colors reflect by making sure I am seen.

My colors protect by hiding me in between.

My colors attract by shades of yellows, reds and greens.

 

I am Butterfly.

I go through change to find my true self.

I go through change to see I’m like no one else.

I go through change to watch your heart melt.

 

I am Butterfly.

I am unapologetic in my bright-colored sights.

I am unapologetic as I soar to new heights.

I am unapologetic because I bring the light.

 

I am Butterfly.

My life may not be everlasting all time.

But my beauty lives on and my colors still shine.

My blessing is you on this journey of mine.

 

We are Butterflies.

I am Butterfly.

Stay well.

Flower power!

I like flowers. They are pretty. Most of them smell very nice. They are a reminder of nature and all things Mother Earth. I love the flowers that are picked from my mom’s incredible garden, for example. What I don’t love, is people spending money on flowers, at least not for me. Sure that has something to do with my issues of “receiving”, but I’m also very practical. I would sooner prefer someone cook me a meal, or take me on a beautiful hike, for example. That creates a lasting memory, as opposed to the flowers that I will have to watch whither in their vase and eventually toss. I’m not totally without appreciation though (and certainly not as dark as that sounds), and I get that there’s sentiment behind the gift of flowers.  I just bought Sunflowers for a ten year old because she did something courageous and magnificent, and when I saw the Sunflowers, I thought of her sunny disposition, and knew I needed to get them for her. She loved them by the way. Hold your peonies, I am getting to the point.

Flower Hour!

Flower Hour!

Someone brought me flowers the other day, and it was a complete surprise, and it was a wonderful surprise. It was just the boost that I needed. So maybe, just maybe, my “practicality” isn’t all that practical, because the warm feelings, the happiness that has continued these last two days from seeing the flowers, that’s worth it!! So the good news, is that I now have a better attitude towards receiving, and receiving flowers in general, so feel free!! 😉  I will definitely consider buying flowers more often, and not just as gifts for others, but maybe just for myself! There’s something serene about their colors and something calming about their presence, the Totems nearby are helpful too!  So on your way home from work today, maybe consider picking up a bunch of flowers, not necessarily for someone else, but how about just for you?! You deserve it.

Stay well.

Giving the gift of flowers is lovely, giving the gift of a Totem is lasting. Buy a Totem now for someone you love and they can carry it with them always. Just click on any of the Totems on the side of the page and get one now!
