I love that the owl is a symbol of change. It reminds me that change is not bad and is sometimes necessary.
As a 19 year old I can honestly say I’ve been through more than most people go through in their entire lives. I’ve travelled over seas, broken numerous bones, I’ve experience losses and I’ve experienced love. Without each and every single one of these experiences I wouldn’t be who I am today. And when things are wonderful it’s easy to take things for granted. But when things don’t go as planned it’s important to remember that everything happens for a reason.
The Lotus (padma in sanskrit) is to remind me not to let bad things keep me down and I got the Hamsa done, because I always feel like someone is watching out for me.
