Ahhh the dragonfly. Fellow hater of Mosquitos… (Taken with Instagram)
Day 33: The Dragonfly
So, today by virtue of circumstances, I got the chance to see a dragonfly. Now normally when I see a dragonfly I often feel just grateful, because that means that they’re out hunting Mosquitos, one of their favorite snacks. Though, for me today, it definitely has more symbolism to it.
A little background for ya, I went and interviewed for a job and am currently in the process of waiting to hear back from them. I have to wait until tomorrow, which means that I’m in limbo, with a fair amount of things to both think about and stress over. Part of me just wants to allow the anxiety to come flooding in, because just like you, I too am never 100% sure of outcomes. The other part of me wants to just let go, feel excited and happy about how well the interview went.
So cut back to today. Im sitting outside and what happens to land above my head, but this dragonfly. And he’s actually quite beautiful, although in more of an alien kind of a way. So me being the natural spirit loving kind of person that I am, I look up on my phone what seeing a dragonfly represents symbolically in this handy dandy animal totem app I have on my smart phone. I know right, they have animal totem apps?? (they have an app for everything).
The app says that seeing a dragonfly is symbolic of change, intuition and embracing the journey. Which hello! is exactly what I’m going through. I guess what this means for me is that I need to rely on my intuition as well as my sense of logic to help me through this transition. I should focus on being excited about the outcome no matter what it is because if I don’t, I just know that all my fears will come a-knockin’’.
So that’s what I’m gonna do. Every time I feel scared I’m gonna send that fearful thought some light and love, remind myself of how much my interviewers liked me, know that I have all the goods to deliver in this potential new job, and let it be. Cuz it’s gonna be no matter what I do.
So, Is there anything in your life that reminds you of the dragonfly? Anything that is going to see major change envelope you, whether you like it or not? If there is, then one word to the wise - take each moment as it comes and try not to control the outcome. Do everything in your power to make things go your way but allow what is, to be. And oh ya, throw a ton of positive vibes at it. Those are my normal approaches to big changes, and I gotta say that they’ve served me well thus far…
Positive vibes and lots of love, from me and Mr. Dragonfly,
