Happiness is like a Butterfly.


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’




Love Alison.

  1. Beautiful. It demonstrates perfectly ‘flow’ – the contentment from being occupied with a task, being playful and creative, and accidentally finding peace!

  2. I think I can back this up with proof…last year I decided to focus on and keep a ‘gratitude’ journal, I found it was easy list 3 things daily or as often as I remembered that I was grateful for that day. This year my word was ‘joy’ the more I focused on finding it, the more difficult I’ve found it…I’m switching back to gratitude!
