The Butterfly Effect

When you feel powerless or insignificant…just remember that every thing you say, do, and think has an effect upon the world!  Each time you have kind words to say, a smile for someone, or a positive thought about yourself or someone else…you’ve changed the course of the world!  How powerful is that?

I took these photos at a Butterfly Exhibition yesterday and decided to research the history of butterflies.

According to Wikipedia, The Butterfly Effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions; where a small change at one place in a nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state. For example, the presence or absence of a butterfly flapping its wings could lead to creation or absence of a hurricane.

Rather than feeling helpless during difficult situations in our lives and of those we love, we need to remember that we have more control/power than we’ve ever imagined.  Realizing that we can’t and shouldn’t control others…only ourselves is the key!

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.”

Sending thoughts of peace, love, and joy!

    I had heard about the butterfly effect before but had never given it much thought. This post made me look it up and I read about it in detail.


    P.S. Your photos are so colorful!


  2. So beautiful and exactly what I needed to hear this morning. Many blessings to you and your mother in this time of transition. Big hugs to you both.
