~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Going through all this change in my life has been incredibly difficult. There were days when I would wake up and think - "I just can't do it. I wish I could sleep and never wake up." But then I formed what I call my 'guerrera persona'. The guerrera, or girl warrior, is the side of me that keeps on fighting no matter what. And my guerrera symbol is the lotus flower.
It all started when I saw a beautiful quote by Masaru Emoto:
"...discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong..."
I decided my life needed an overhaul. I started re-doing my bedroom - the most personal room in the home. I got a wall decal with that quote and a lotus and I bought myself a little lotus necklace that I wear nearly every day. When I feel down, or like I can't get through the day, I often find myself touching my necklace as a talisman to remind me that I am a guerrera.
After discussing my personal symbol with my beau, he realized that he too has a symbol. He feels connected with the compass rose - a guide through the storms of life.
Do you have a personal symbol? Will you work it into your wedding somehow?
