Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when the day is done, that’s what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
And I’m feeling good!
Why am i singing this morning? What brought on this bonheur? What is this renewing in my spirit? Is the sun shining brighter today? What brilliant color blue is the sky today? What’s put this smile on my face that’s troubling the smack out of my coworkers? Ha! And there you have it.
Are things that vastly improved since my last post that i’m dancing on the ceiling in joy? Not really. My car is getting fixed, but i still owe the money. Still have no idea where i’ll be living in the next month, but there are a couple irons in the fire. Where’s additional move money coming from? Hell if i know! But i’m not worried about any of it. I’m in a cloud of contentment right now and it’s alllllll good!
As I’m putting this blog together, rather willy nilly i thought, it started to stitch itself together. See, that’s how God works. You get random pieces, or what you think are random, then they sew themselves together to make this amazeballs tapestry! I mean!! So I started with “Feeling Good” right? Looked up the lyrics and chose the stanza above, right? Found a beautiful picture of a dragonfly for the header, right? Looked up some info on this creature… And discovered where the trail was leading! Check this!
The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.
The traditional association of Dragonflies with water also gives rise to this meaning to this amazing insect. The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life.
If this ain’t me right now! I’m feeling the transformation, changing into the me i need to be. It’s not that i’ve been mentally or emotionally immature, but my growth has been retarded in the last few months with all the changes and shenanigans going on in my life. But during these trials, I’ve become more aware of who/who’s I am and what I and He are capable of. I’ve grown stronger mentally, emotionally, spiritually and even physically. I am changing! And i’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! No idea how long this tunnel is, but since the human eye can see a candle flicker from a mile away, I’m still optimistic!
(As i continue this 4 hours later…)
I have been smiling all day. I mean a real smile. Like joy in my heart smiling. Even when i found out my mechanic still doesn’t have my engine to begin the install, i still kept smiling. Not an insouciant or capricious smile, it’s sincere. And i’m loving it! Folks all around me are complaining about this and that, and while it’s not that i don’t care, but i’m completely unphased by it. I’ve had a renewal of the mind, body and spirit and I’m pumped.
What does this mean for you? I have no idea! Maybe my smile can encourage you to smile. Maybe my joy is contagious. Maybe you can revel in my victory over malaise. I dunno. I just had to share some sunshine today.
Hope you’re feeling it too!
