8- And We All Shine On

2/365- Glitter, originally uploaded by monica jennison.
This little butterfly was given to me by a good friend in Michigan. I hung it from a tapestry that I have in a reading corner in my room. This is typically where I go when I want some peace and quiet. I light some candles, sit on my bench, pull out a book and read or do some yoga, meditation or write.
There's something really liberating about being able to go to this corner of my room just to escape the world and have some serenity. It's my solace, my creative corner, my relaxation station.
This little guy in the picture helped pull the whole thing together. I've taken to touching him on my way out the door, and he's somehow become a good-luck charm for me.
I think everyone needs a good-luck charm, no matter what or who it is. Even if you don't believe in that sort of thing completely, sometimes it just helps to cheer your spirit and brighten your day just a bit.
I think one thing that I love so much about this butterfly is the glitter that he has all over him. It just reminds me every time that I look at him that everyone, in their own little way, always shines. So shine on, butterfly, shine on.
