Butterflies and Rainbows

Life isn’t always all butterflies and rainbows. Still, it goes on. Even when I don’t feel like it, I do my best to smile and make the best of things. That’s really all you can do, right?

When I get down on Life, what I really need is getting back to appreciating the little beautiful things about life, such as butterflies and rainbows. It’s easy to become so overwhelmed with all of the negativity and disasters happening in our world. So, when you’re overwhelmed, find something simple to appreciate and lose yourself in that for a while.

Hateful people have a way of coming out of the woodworks this way and that. It’s really horrifying how bad humanity really can be when you are faced with its uglier side. But, I must constantly remind myself that, overall, humanity is good and we’re all just trying to get by.

Sometimes, you just have to sit back and appreciate the butterflies and rainbows. Appreciate the sun and clouds, the colors, and the sweet smells of nature. Take in the wonderful grand design of the world around us. Believe that people still have the chance to make a lot of good of themselves. Good can often come out of bad situations, but we don’t focus on the possibilities enough at all.

Butterflies and rainbows, butterflies and rainbows. I just have to keep reminding myself of these things. There’s plenty of beauty left in our world. So, it’s in our best interests to remember it and appreciate it.
