Transparent Butterfly

~Transparent Butterfly~
Absolutely gorgeous!
It comes from Central America and is found from Mexico to Panama.
It is quite common in its zone, but it not easy to find because of its transparent wings, which is a natural camouflage mechanism.
A butterfly with transparent wings is rare and beautiful.
As delicate as finely blown glass,
the presence of this rare tropical gem is used by rain forest ecologists
as an indication of high habitat quality
and its demise alerts them of ecological change.
Rivaling the refined beauty of a stained glass window,
the translucent wings of the Glasswing butterfly shimmer
in the sunlight like polished panes of turquoise, orange, green, and red.
All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed:
in life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
Really something isn't it? ~Wishing you Dragonfly Daydreams & Butterfly Kisses~ *hugs* deb

If.......


If, a simple two letter word.

Have you ever wondered, what if?
What if I had decided to do this, or this or that?
Would I be happier?
More content?
Be a better mother, wife...
person?

I suppose you could drive yourself mad with all the what ifs & if onlys.
Wishing or wanting.
Wondering.
Should we be satisfied with the "way things are"
Can we ever be satisfied, content?

Seems I'm filled with questions tonight.
Maybe that is why I'm not asleep.
If only I was wiser, smarter.......

The decisions we make must be made with the most information we have at that time.
That's all we can ask of ourselves....
To beat ourselves up due to a poor decision is moot.
If we find that we have made a wrong choice,
we must learn from that experience.

Is it wiser to live with our choices or to abandon them?
I don't know
Maybe we each have to do what we feel is right.

Life is short
Too short to live unhappily.
But
should you be selfish & abandon responsibilities so that you can be happy?
Or it that being selfish?
Again, what is right for one person is wrong for another.

Maybe if we are patient our time will come
to be happy, content.......free

~~I wish you happiness~~

*hugs*
