I was working at a fundraising event. When out of nowhere, a ladybug came. The ladybug landed on my then manager, and friend. And her face lit up. For a moment, she was the most excited, joyful woman in the world.
"Ladybugs bring good luck!" She had said.
Until that moment I had no idea how a little insect could have such a profound effect on a person. As her face lit up, you could feel the optimism, the joy, the wonder.
You too can celebrate the little things. The magical things. They happen to us everyday. If you look out for them, you'll notice.
There are wonderful little details scattered throughout your world. From a drop of water, perfectly round, sparkling as bright as a diamond. To the tiny star in the sky, that keeps you warm and shines brighter than any other.
The little ladybug. With her clumsy flight patterns. She doesn't know where she's going, but she's going. And with her, she brings joy and enthusiasm.
And what would it be like, if you looked at the world as if you were that ladybug? How would you feel if you had the ability to bring optimism and joy to all those you touch, as well as everyone around them?
"People around us can become drawn toward us and enriched by us because of how we energize them. As we become known for being this sort of person, our relationships and connections grow."

You hold the power of the ladybug. To bring good luck wherever you go. To enrich and energize everyone you touch.
