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!
