Your sign from the Universe

July has been one of the busiest months for me in quite some time. In just a few days, I’ll be standing next to one of my very best friends as she gets married to the love of her life. I am so blessed and honored to have been provided that opportunity, but with a lot of social obligations tied to that sort of thing, plus also celebrating the 4th of July back home in IL, I have only had one weekend in Michigan this month.

I was tempted to pack that weekend or put pressure on myself to do ALL the things, and while I did find some time to work on blog and other goal oriented tasks, I found a way to do it all with ease and also ensure there was plenty of relaxing moments as well.

There were long walks around my neighborhood listening to podcasts and a nice long walk to the beach where I spent some time sitting on a bench, looking out onto the lake, watching families play and jump around in the water, and just reflect on so many beautiful aspects of my life.


One of the things I’ve come to realize this past year is that butterflies are a sign from the universe for me. On this particular weekend of rest, I saw a butterfly on each long walk. For me, this felt like reassurance, that the steps I’m taking and the work I’m doing is exactly what I should be doing and how I should be spending my time, money, and energy. I swear to you, there is no better feeling in the world than to get that reassurance, especially when you are learning the importance of letting go of the “how” and allowing the universe to just lay everything before you in due time.

Consider this your sign. Consider this your reminder to let go and let the universe support you.

Do you have a specific sign or signal like my butterfly?

  1. I love that butterflies are your sign from the universe! I don’t know if I’ve ever really observed much before. I will say I have found answers when the wind blows toward me so maybe that’s something!

    1. If you asked me a year ago, I don’t think I would have known mine. Just start being aware and open to the idea, and I’m sure it will slowly start to show up for you!

  2. Weirdly, something I always see as a sign is the number “317”… I was born at 3:17pm, and it’s just a number that always seems to pop into my life (my old school bus number, the first 3 digits of my phone number growing up, etc). I love that your sign is butterflies ❤️🦋

    1. Oh wow! That’s cool, Tina! Though I’m starting to think you and Russ should have been married on March 17th. haha!

      1. That’s the day we started dating; and also the day we got engaged!!!! Another way that number has been a sign- lol

  3. I’ve been seeing a monarch butterfly around lately. Especially when I’m havomg a rough time. It makes me think of my dad. It’s like he’s telling me to breathe everything will be fine. 😍

  4. When I see a rainbow I know that my son who I lost last year is showing me he is watching over me and I feel at ease. One day last year I was having an awful day. My grief was rearing it’s ugly head in a painful way and then I saw a double rainbow and it was like a weight was lifted. Pretty powerful.

    1. Oh Kimberly, I am so sorry for your loss but what a sweet reminder every time you see a rainbow. I have no doubt he is showing you his love in those moments.
