“The dragonfly spirit animal invites people to keep a light, positive outlook no matter what.”

Change is sometimes uncomfortable, yet it is needed for growth.
There has been significant change and challenge in my own life these past two weeks – losing a beloved 21-year-old kitty, unexpected repairs to the truck and RV, and severing ties with a non-profit that was dear to my heart.
As I spend time outside when it’s cool to mediate near the creek behind my RV, colorful dragonflies dance in flight around me, easing my heart. They land on nearby branches to observe me, and I observe them right back.
In the world of symbolism, which we as writers carefully and subtly insert into stories, the dragonfly represents the following:
• Joy, lightness of being
• Seeing clearly through illusions and deceits
• An invitation to dive deeper into your feelings
It’s interesting to note that in the midst of chaos and change, I didn’t notice these beautiful, delicate creatures. Now, I see them everywhere!
