SETTING THE COURSE …


Earlier this month our great grandfather turned 92 and as you can tell he is still very sassy… he even has a younger girlfriend who is in her 80’s! OH YA BABY! 😉

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms!

Today’s blog is a very simple one… it is a reminder simply to be grateful for what you have. The WONDERFUL thing about following the ButterflyMoms blog is that you get a slice of the journey going deeper into joy. No matter what level of your goals you attain, the “ickies” never go away. Some people don’t realize that. When you are living towards your dream there is a belief that when you get said dream all will be well in the world. You won’t have to struggle with the mind-numbing things like paying bills, filling out forms or wrestling with your to do list… but guest what, those things NEVER go away. They are part of the “normal” part of every life. Knowing this will ground you. Will set your life’s pace. Will help you realize that life is about a flow and NOT about a race that you eventually want to get off of. Many of us have spent at least part of our life EFFORTING on that rat race wheel. It is exhausting! It gets you nowhere. It sucks the very joy from your bones’ marrow…

Today I invite you to ignore the piles of ________ (clothes, boxes, chores, goals, unfinished projects) and instead focus on what you love in your life. Start with what you already have that “works”, that brings you joy and then go into your day from that point of entry. (sigh) EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY YOU ARE SETTING THE COURSE FOR YOUR LIFE’s JOY… Do it with intention and heart and your life be once again like those afternoons you spent playing as a child using your imagination to live in your own joyful story.

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

PS Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of the ButterflyMoms Soul Support Group. It was absolutely fabulous to see how people’s lives had shifted! I am incredibly thankful that I have the extreme honor of being able to live my life’s purpose of being the fire that ignites people’s souls! WOW! I AM SOOOOO LUCKY!!! 🙂 THANK YOU FOR READING MY BLOG, BUYING MY BOOK, COMING TO MY WORKSHOPS, ATTENDING THE SOUL SUPPORT GROUP AND TREATING YOURSELF TO OUR RETREATS!!!

PPS Go to the ButterflyMoms Facebook page for the photos of the amazing soiree last night that was the 1 year anniversary celebration! What a night of magic and love! 🙂

PPPS In case you were wondering…

WHAT IS BUTTERFLYMOMS?
ButterflyMoms is a community of people who realize they are souls first and human being second. They want to explore more about themselves, to find out what makes them happy and how they can lead a life of purpose. It is simply about FEEDING YOUR SOUL. Although it has the name “MOMS” in the title it is more about being nurturing to your own transformation, as the butterfly is to its own metamorphosis. This community is led by Maria Salomão-Schmidt whose transformation was ignited by the birth and death of her BELOVED thirteen month old daughter Sophia (Sophalicious), the original butterfly.

*Every Thursday Night we have a BUTTERFLYMOMS SOUL SUPPORT GROUP at 783 Washington Street in Holliston, MA at 8pm that feeds your soul. They started after Maria manifested her dream…with the help of Sophia…to be a guest on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW and every week since she had done the SOUL SUPPORT GROUP on Thursday nights. There was only supposed to be one workshop but people kept asking to be able to come the next week and the next week and the next week until a whole year has gone by!!!!Any questions call my cell at 617.877.3616.

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria gets up at 4:30-5:00am to write the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Tell your friends… https://butterflymoms.wordpress.com
