Precious jewel, you glow, you shine, reflecting all the good things in the world. Just look at yourself. ~ Maya Angelou
 
Do you ever look at people and notice that they have a certain type of glow about themselves?
 
No, I’m not talking about that pregnancy glow! It’s a glow of sheer happiness and finally loving yourself and being confident of who you are.

It’s a glow that states, “I’m in a happy place in life.”

If you live your life as if everything is about you…YOU will be left with just that, YOU. ~ Anonymous

Have you ever wondered why things are never going in the right direction for you?

Does it seem like you can never get ahead?
 
If you’ve been asking yourself these questions lately, it could be because you are only focused on yourself. Life is not always about the things we want and/or desire. We have to sometimes think about others and how we can enrich other people’s lives.

THE LIEBSTER AWARD


Blogger, Blogging, The Liebster Award


I was nominated for a Liebster Award! It’s a nomination given to smaller bloggers by other smaller bloggers in the blogging community. I’m so excited to share some things about myself so readers can get a better idea of who is behind “From a Caterpillar to a Blossoming Butterfly.” It also serves as a means of communication between myself and my audience!

The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at time ~

Today is be honest day! There are times when I’m feeling “blah” and don’t feel like writing a post. Truth be told, I don’t want to be bothered with anyone. Lately, because of my Lupus I’ve been experiencing migraines like never before. Most of the time the migraine is consistent and all I want to do is get in my bed. This puts me in an even more “blah” mood. Sitting at work has become a task but I continue to press on.

Goals in writing are dreams with deadlines. ~ Anonymous
 
So August is here! Wow, these 8 months have flown by us without even a blink. You still have 5 months (153 days) left to accomplish something. If you are not careful, this entire year will have vanished right before your eyes and you will have nothing to show for it. When you look back on 2015, what can you say you’ve accomplished?
