I don’t know why I’m posting this since I don’t really buy into it. It looks like something on the wall of a suburban assistant principal’s office and it speaks to me about .05%. I also think butterflies are overrated – their beautiful wings don’t fool me from their creepy bug essence.
But after receiving both bad health and bad home news in the same week, I needed to pretend there could be a silver lining just round the bend. So for this one moment, I will inhabit the brainspace of that glass-half-full cheerleader with unshakeable faith that everything happens for a reason, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, God is carrying us on the beach when there’s only one set of footprints, etc.
