Why the dragonfly?
A few years ago, actually quite a few years now, I took a trip to Guatemala. It was a life-changing experience. It was a time of adventure & renewal. A time to learn & expand.
And while I was there a dragonfly perched on my shoulder for quite a while without my knowledge. I was told, “you have been blessed by the dragonfly.”
When I returned home, I felt changed by all that I had experienced on my trip and began a journey to embrace my strengths, seek clarity, and try new things. I started noticing dragonflies in my path more often, and almost always when I was in out in nature, taking time for reflection.
I now use the dragonfly as a symbol of change, self-realization, making the most of my time, poise, & strength.
I didn’t go looking for a symbol to represent myself, but it seems the dragonfly found me.
