How To Make Money Online? We Dwell in Friendship With No Expectations

Let me start this post by this quote,
" The best things in life are unexpected, because there were no expectations."- Eli Khamarov

Just like when we started this blog, we had no expectations, we were just happy to work together, to celebrate friendship, and if in the process we will be rewarded to live our dreams of making a positive difference in some kids lives through our blog's earnings, that would be our sisterhood bonus. We had no idea then how to make money through blogging, but through the years, with your support we are so thankful for the blessing of allowing us to send kids to school. The Salitype Society will turn 4 this July 18, and we continue to live the dream of making a difference in a child's life. From one adopted scholar, we had grown to two scholars, and we can't thank you enough for supporting our site through your visits.

The beauty of having no expectations....let me share with you a similar experience I got last Tuesday.

I certainly was not planning to shoot these pictures at all, but nature always has its way of calling out to me. I was enjoying the Residents Free Tuesday at the Museums in Balboa Park,  when hunger struck me. I was at the San Diego History Museum which is adjacent to the Butterfly Garden. The cafeteria at the Museum was full, so I decided to spend my quick lunch break at The Butterfly Garden.
Green Beetle and The Bee
While enjoying my lunch, I noticed a lot of butterflies fluttering around. They were too busy flying that I knew I would have a hard time taking them a picture, so I simply watched them and never bothered to take out my camera. However, when I was about to finish my lunch, two butterflies teased me by resting at the white daisies closest to me. I counted 1, 2, 3....I told myself if after 10, the butterflies are still there, I would take my camera out. After counting 10, the butterflies were still there, so, just like what I told myself, I took my camera out. As soon as I focused my camera on the two butterflies, they flew away! TEASERS! But to my delight, those two butterflies left two wonderful critters, the green beetle and the bee!

When I looked at their eyes, it seemed that they were super cautious who would be intruding them. Were they the reasons the butterflies left? No matter, I told myself, I thanked the butterflies for guiding me to find the green beetle and the bee. However, as soon I snapped the picture, the bee flew away. :( And I was left with this lone green beetle.
 It seemed like the green beetle was talking at me, telling me, "I know you just finished your lunch, can you please let me enjoy mine?"
 So, in my mind, I told the beetle, "I will, but with your permission, let me take you a few more pictures to give me a very beautiful memory of you, will you? please?" I may imagining it, but it seemed the green beetle cooperated and raised his head a tiny bit. :)
Between my greediness to come closer, or to leave the green beetle alone, just like what I told the green beetle silently, after taking a few pictures very quickly, I let it be, alone, to enjoy his lunch, sipping the sweetest nectar out from the flowers. I left the Butterfly Garden filled with inspiration from the swaying beautiful flowers, fluttering butterflies and wonderful critters.

Now, as I write this, I am filled with inspiration for The Salitype Society. Happy 4th anniversary, The Salitype Society, may you continue to be inspired in each others friendship and in celebrating togetherness that touches heart(s).
