The Dragonfly

Updated: Jul 11

I get asked often, “why the dragonfly”? The dragonfly is a symbol of change and transformation. It also represents wisdom, lightness of being or joy, adaptability, an invitation to explore emotions, and being on your guard for illusions and deceit.


Did you know that they are born in the water and spend anywhere from two months to five years as larvae, only to live about 6 months as the dragonfly we know and love flying about? Because of their short but fulfilling lifespan, dragonflies are a symbol of living in the moment and making the most of the time given to us.


That last attribute is what I most resonate with. Hence, the Dragonfly.


Most people don’t do well with change, but I really don’t mind it all that much. I don’t get overly attached to things or even people.


For example, I loved my childhood home growing up and I loved my BFF during my younger years. But when we “broke up” and when I moved states away, it was a fairly easy transition for me. I learned to not get caught up in the past. Can’t change what you had for breakfast, so why would I think that holding on to something, or someone in the past would work either?


Does that make me heartless? Not at all. When I love something or someone, it’s with my whole heart. But it does allow me to let go of things that no longer serve me.


I’ve been in the holistic wellness field for over 25 years. It was gradual, to say the least. I took my personal experiences in my own health and life and started sharing that with my clients. Isn’t that what people do with their friends and family? They share their experiences, good and bad, so that those they care about have an opportunity to try something new, or avoid something bad.


So, when you see my website and there are several links that seemingly have nothing to do with one another, take in the full picture. All of these companies have offered me something that has made my life better, for one reason or another. While I can go into specifics at another time, using safe products; getting bodywork done; training my mind; eating healthfully; getting good rest; moving my body right; spreading truth; these are things that are important to me. Being Mindful of what I spend time and money on. And, I love sharing with those I care about. And, if I happen to earn a buck or two in the process, well, that helps me support my family.


From bodywork to makeup. That’s the full picture.
