Growing up there were woods down the street that would be filled with fireflies during the Summer. I could sit there and stare at them all evening until they finally went to bed. The individual lights were so small but together they made such a beautiful show. I think in life sometimes we forget about the firefly moments. They aren't always those big events, promotions, new purchases, etc. that make us happy in the long run. It's those little moments that are so easy to miss if we aren't paying attention. Those are the moments that create beauty and meaning in our lives. And those are the moments I want to help you find so that you can have your own forest filled with fireflies.
