Connecting with Nature at the Beginning of Summer

Dearest ButtterflyMommies!!!

As we go through life we get into ruts. These ruts can become a whole life if we don’t pay attention. It’s like the lobster in the pot of water that slowly heats up. They just fall asleep until they die. Wouldn’t it be GREAT if life came with a MAYDAY call?! The good news is that it does. It comes in many, many forms illnes, death of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a relationship…..we have all seen soap operas. They have great examples! 😉

When you have no goals or direction to your life you get bored. When you get bored you start “zoning out”, doing behaviors that fit that kind of mental state like sleeping less (oh I am sooooo guilty of that!) watching more TV or what I call paying more attention to machines than people. Notice when you do that. Bring AWARENESS TO IT.


Be honest for a moment here. When was the last time you brought your A game to your life? When was the last time you were THE BEST YOU you can be? I can promise you that not being in your zone has caused you MORE PAIN than any ADVENTURE being in your zone would cause so have at it beautiful ButterflyMoms!!! I ask you today to bring out your A-GAME. If you don’t think you have the energy or you don’t know where to start simply sit back and picture what your A-GAME life looks like. Swim in it. Languish in it. Play in it. Wear it all day long. See how it feels. Translate it back into your day.

Notice that when YOU shift everything around you SHIFTS. You are where you are today because everything is a reflection of YOU. I invite you to PLAY TODAY IN YOUR ZONE! Share with us what happens. What works and what does not.

Great big hugs,

  1. Maria my beautiful friend, your words of wisdom were exactly what I needed today!! It is so easy for me to withdraw especially when I’m facing my role in my own despair. I caused this and the pain of that knowledge some how gives me justification to withdraw from life. Knowing that what is in my life right now was a result of unhealthy behaviors of the past allows me the ability to change them to healthy ones.
    Thank you sweet soul!!!
    Love and Light

    • Truly…we are just a reflection of each other. I am a reflection of you and your wisdom. :)! Just remember that WITHDRAWING is not good or bad it just takes away some of your light and causes you more pain because you are moving away from your essence/ your source.

      Great big hugs,

  3. Mariaaaaa – What a powerful message today! Life is a journey and we need to be playing full out, or else we will not get the “fullness” that life has to offer. This has been a lesson that has been taught to be through my business and is why I love what I do so much because I get to show people how to do just this – play their A game – and to give them a vehicle in which to do it!!!!!

    Thanks for sharing today – you inspire me daily!!!!!


  4. Thanks for your writing. I will bring my A game today. I need you to bring yours also. Love you

  5. This is so true! I was in a rut, and forced myself out of it. But it would have been easier if I’d been on this site, getting your encouragement lol 🙂

      Great big hugs, Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 🙂
