Butterfly Memories

"There is a morning inside you waiting to burst open into light." —Rumi


I don’t remember when my fascination with butterflies began but I love that they are so intriguing. I remember when I found out that they only live 2-4 weeks and I couldn’t stop crying. How can something so beautiful and awe-inspiring only show its magnificence for such a short period of time? My beautiful friend Tina VaLant taught me so much about butterflies. She protected the caterpillars to give them a better chance of reaching their potential of becoming butterflies. As much as she loved Monarchs and did a lot of teaching about them, she absolutely loved the Zebra Longwings, which is our Florida state butterfly. Today, I saw more Zebra Longwings in the backyard where I am staying than I think I have ever seen before. I could feel Tina smiling like a proud mama.


Dear Angels, I love that we can feel our loved one’s presence by something as simple as remembrance of a special moment together. When Tina found out that I had breast cancer, she surprised me with a butterfly release. It was a Zebra Longwing. Like Tina, each of us possesses unique gifts and talents that are meant to be shared with the world. Embracing the essence of who we are is cause for celebrating our individuality. Recognize that our gifts are not accidental, but divinely bestowed upon us to contribute to the greater good, inspiring and uplifting others.


Dear Ones, living your path requires courage. Fear may attempt to hold you back, whispering doubts and insecurities into your ear. But remember, fear is an illusion, a construct of the mind. Step beyond its limitations and embrace the courage that lies within you. Trust that the universe will provide you with the strength you need to face any challenge that comes your way. Embrace the unknown, for it is within the realm of uncertainty that you will discover your true potential. Incorporate more gratitude as it is a powerful force that opens the doors to abundance and fulfillment. Cultivate a grateful heart, for even the smallest blessings can bring immense joy and transformation. Surrender to the flow of life, releasing control over outcomes and trusting in the Divine plan. As you surrender, you align with the universe's wisdom, allowing it to guide you towards the most extraordinary experiences and it is these shared experiences that will stay in your heart and be brought to your memory at special moments.


Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.


Today, I promise to smile at each butterfly I encounter and say hello to Tina.
