I always dreamed of happiness by Heather King

I always dreamed of happiness by 

Remaining on the path to enlightenment, positivity and the journey I am currently on I wanted to create something close as I could to a dream sequence. I have never dreamed in black and white so I thought it would be interesting to put myself there. At first glance the sky looks eerie and if a storm is approaching. If you look closely you will see colourful butterflies surround me. Whatever you focus your attention on grows. I choose to focus on the light and the bright.
This also has a deeper meaning of a profound nature. My best friend had the most amazing grandmother in the world. The were best friends and as close as could be. Unfortunately Kristy lost her grandma. I have been with her several times to visit her grave, and always Kristy brings butterfly type things to leave at her grandma’s resting place because her grandmother LOVED butterflies. Over the years Kristy would sit at her Grandmothers grave and pray to her, talk to her, ask her to watch over me and protect me.
Believe it or not, the beautiful soul of her grandmother is watching over me and protecting me in the form of butterflies. There are so many times where I am on the way to a doctor, or in nature and when the fear hits me, I see not one, but numerous butterflies which follow me. This is a sign of great magnitude.
I believe if you have a bond of love with another that goes beyond anything one can even begin to fathom, that they will stick with you and those you love for an eternity.
Thank you Kristy for welcoming me into your world, into your heart, and into your family.
I wish I could have met your grandmother. In my heart I feel the love you both shared and I am happy that you got to experience that in your lifetime♥

    The back story about the butterflies, so moving and magical, my dear ♥. Your light is shining brightly and ever-expanding! I believe light and dark are part of the complete spectrum of life and of the concept of illumination. Now that you are rounding out your portfolio with more light, the whole of your portfolio, feels so much more complete. You take us through the darkness and into the light. Your journey was meant to unravel in this way. I love you, your beauty, your friendship, your visionary talent and all of the amazing ways, in which, you inspire! XXO
