Celebrations and me have an awkward relationship. Thanksgiving, Winter Wish, Shamrock Day, I can get into. Mostly because the centerpiece of said celebration isn’t me.
But, birthdays are another story all together. Let’s just say that I get butterflies whenever I think about my birthday approaching. I don’t like being the center of attention. I prefer to be with close friends and family on special occasions.
Now, my birthday is still a few weeks off (Summer Solstice, if you’re wondering), yet I know a good number of you have a birthday in the very merry month of May, so I thought I’d create something special for you.
Flipping through my Creation Book, I found some sketches of butterflies I have yet to make real, so I picked one of the more promising ones, decorated it with a smattering of magical orbs and let it take flight.
I made a wish as it fluttered away.
You can do the same in your world.
Butterflies represent transformation, so perhaps instead of blowing out candles on your special day, you can find a butterfly and make a wish. Let its carefree magic inspire you to transform your dreams into reality.
May all your beautiful dreams come true.
