I've been seeing butterflies...
Transformation. Usually at the start of a New Year we take the time to reflect on the year that has passed and look forward to manifesting our goals in the future.
Over the course of the last six months, so many transitions, changes and transformations have occurred. Such is life! With change comes both joy and growing pains.
Every day since the start of Happy Days I've been seeing butterflies. At first I thought, "perhaps butterflies are more active during the spring and summer months" -- which makes sense although butterflies can be active during any season. Then, I started to notice I was seeing them every. single. day. At that point I was thinking that this daily occurrence was more than just a coincidence. I told my Mom and asked her what she thought. Her mother, my Grandma Marcella, who passed away nearly 20 years ago was an active gardener and always loved the butterflies so we thought perhaps she coming by to say "hello." Then, I started to do some research...
As it turns out, the butterfly is a symbol for many different things in many cultures. Some Christians believed butterflies are a sign of the soul. The Chinese believed butterflies were a symbol of marital joy and bliss. To Native Americans, the butterfly is a symbol for change, color and joy.
"The butterfly symbolizes transformation and joy. Its dance reflects the need for movement from where we are to our next phase of being."
If we think about the life progression and evolution of a butterfly, they really experience an immense amount of change and beauty. They are quick and flit about as if they are dancing upon the flowers. We can learn so much from them as they grow, develop, hone their skills and transform throughout their many stages of life. When you feel a change coming on, "break free" from your cocoon just like the butterfly. When opportunities present themselves to us, we should learn to adapt with ease and grace. Change does not have to be traumatic, it can be refreshing and even empowering.
We recently relocated from Los Angeles, California to Florida. 2,522 miles eastward to our new home in the heart of downtown Orlando. Next month we will have accomplished six months in business as Happy Days Marketing (and, I'll be turning 32 -- yikes!).
It has been an amazing journey and we've really learned to follow our intuition. All along, the butterflies were preparing me for something I did not know was going to happen. We've worked with THE BEST clients, we've learned the most appropriate lessons and we've achieved so freaking much.
Listen to your inner voice and heighten your sense of awareness of how the universe is taking care of you. You might be listening however you might not be hearing what it is trying to tell you.
Thank you for being a part of the Happy Days community. We believe in you. Stick with us, and you'll feel in tune with the universe too.
