No More Chasing Butterflies!...Just Enjoy Life!

"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..."

We are in control of our future in a big percentage. It's all the decisions that we make, the consequences of the ones that we didn't take and finally the mix of all of that. Sometimes it's so easy to get together with some people...somehow their worlds are almost parallel with yours and things work out. And at other times with other people it's almost like climbing a mountain covered with snow. You can do it, but it takes so much effort.

It's also the ability to speak freely with someone and share and discuss ideas. It's not just chemistry between people but also timing. Location? Location is very important but I really think that it's not an obstacle. Sometimes you have more meaningful conversations with friends that are on the other side of the world, somehow you're kindred spirits and understand each other.

And finally love....the more you look, the less you'll find and the only bad thing about this is that you seek for something and forget the broad view of life. It's like finding a ring in the sand. You may look and look all day but then after hours of searching, you will end up with a burnt back, exhausted limbs and chapped lips. Whereas, someone else was swimming, relaxing and enjoying the beach. Then at the point of departing, they may find it accidentally and be happy. If not, then it's okay as well, they spent a beautiful day at the beach.

Whatever happens, happens. We might as well enjoy life and we'll find someone that is doing exactly the same. Those are the perfect couples...Independent-happy spirits that come together.

The chase is exhausting and games are for kids. I'll just wait on butterflies...I know I'm one too. In the meanwhile, I'll let the sun kiss my face and play the music loud because I'm going to have fun!

Find your passions, joys, and comforts and persue them - they are real - make a space for yourself a place you can go for quiet or reading or listening to your music - what ever it is you enjoy - and its usualy the small things that are the best and yes eliminate as much of the bs and stress no one neds it and for those that create it - get it! your life will be better too. One of my passions is photography it allows me the time to be by myself yet be in a place or moment that is pleasing to me - to see things without the clutter and bs - its not only focusing the lens it focusing the mind and spirit on what in a place, scene or object that appeals to me or pleases me. But in all of it and with love too I think it is just moments of happiness, moments of pleasure - but you make it yourself - no one else does.
