“Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.” — Henry David Thoreau
How many times have you stumbled upon a moment that made your heart sing—a spontaneous laughter with friends, a breathtaking sunset, or the simple pleasure of a warm cup of tea on a chilly day? These are the instances when happiness finds us, not because we meticulously planned for them, but because we allowed ourselves to be present in the moment. Sometimes these moments come so unexpectedly as we open up to staying present with no expectations. I was at my friend Michele’s house one beautiful day and we were outside enjoying the Florida sunshine. We were just talking when suddenly a Monarch butterfly appeared and landed on Michele’s hand. My thought was that you could not order up such perfection.
Dear Angels, serendipity, that magical phenomenon where we discover something wonderful by sheer chance, is a powerful force in the pursuit of happiness. It's the unexpected encounter, the unplanned adventure, or the surprise that leaves us smiling for days. When we remain open to life's possibilities, happiness has a way of showing up when we least expect it.
Dear Ones, happiness doesn't always announce its arrival with fanfare. It can be found in the simplest, most ordinary moments—the warmth of a hug, the taste of your favorite meal, or the sound of rain tapping on your window. By appreciating the beauty in the mundane, you open yourselves to a world where happiness effortlessly finds its way to you. When you cultivate a grateful heart, you become attuned to the abundance of joy that surrounds you. Take a moment each day to reflect on the blessings, big and small, that have found their way into your life. You'll be surprised at how happiness - and butterflies - gravitate toward a heart full of gratitude.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to be grateful for all the small things of life and watch the blessings of happiness fill my life.
