Don't Chase the Butterfly

During my bus journey, this man got on and was speaking on his mobile. Although I was preoccupied at the time, something told me to listen in to his conversation. He was chatting about how happy he was with his new partner.

"It's all good," he said. "I've never been happier, mate. I never thought this would happen after what I went through with the last one. I didn't go looking for it. It's like a butterfly, when you chase it, it flies away but when you sit still the butterfly lands on you. She's a good girl and really looks after me."

I was really happy for my friend for being so loved up.

Thanks, mate, for the reminder about not chasing the butterfly. Wishing you happiness forever more.
