Spring cleaning can sometimes turn into a bit of a treasure find in my house. After an hour or so every member of the family is shouting, “OH! Thaaaat’s where this was!” I found something fun in my cleaning of the bookcase this week.
I found a brochure for a Bucket List adventure that I have been dreaming about for quite some time! It is a Polar Bear Safari with Tundra Buggy. I love animals, but there are a few that I have a deep and unexplainable connection with and Polar Bears are one of them.
I remember visiting the Portland Zoo with my kids and adoring the Polar Bear exhibit there. My kids had to eventually pull ME away so that we could see the rest of the zoo. I’ve often wondered about my deep connection to these amazing creatures.
There is something majestic and mysterious about Polar bears. They are incredibly powerful and strong and yet have very gentle eyes and graceful movement. I would absolutely love to see them in their natural habitat, without cages and barriers.
Today I’m curious if my connection to them is that I possess some of those same qualities. I, as a human, have something majestic and mysterious about me. I am incredibly powerful and strong and yet have a gentleness and gracefulness.
I think there is a place in my own soul where I long to see myself in my natural habitat. To explore and experience life without cages and barriers. To fully live life exactly as I was created to live.
Today, I will dream of those furry creatures and the day I meet them in their natural habitat. I will also let them inspire me to embrace my own unique creation. I will give myself permission to be exactly who I was created to be!
What is your natural habitat? Who were you created to be? What does your life look like without cages and limitations?
