“It Doesn’t Get Much Better Than This”

He turned to me

and said “It doesn’t

get much better

than this.”


Yes indeed.


Say yes to life and

embrace each moment.

Be ready for the instant of

precious unfolding.


Watch out for the magic.

Be alert to nature’s

harmonies. Pay attention

to those small details that

catch your eye, or touch

you like butterfly wings.

Here and gone in a breath.


Breathe it all in. Every inhale

an opening to a new present.

Every exhale a letting go

of the past.


You say “It can’t be 

as easy as that”. 

… Yet, it is.


Open your senses and

your heart to the

wonder of it all.

In the journey into

the present you

come to realize…

there is Love here.

  2. When we finally ‘see’ us, that moment when our blindfolds are removed and our masks are understood for what they are…something so beautiful is opened to us. It is so profound it brings tears, tears of gladness because now we understand that it wasn’t just a misery one day after the other, but a very loving embrace to truly see that there is beauty within it all ❤️
    Beautiful post Val, there is indeed magic all around 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
