During my workout this morning (which included running and circuit training and even a few burpees!), I saw a dragonfly and then a butterfly in close proximity. This always makes me smile. Dragonfly is a spirit animal for me and butterfly holds great significance for someone who is very dear to me. I killed my workout today. I felt great and motivated and strong the whole time. So I decided to dedicate this blog post to my very own Gossamer Winged Butterfly Maiden, Maria Bird. From the first day I met Maria, I could see the beautiful glow of her soul.
That’s her. You can see the glow too, right? (also, Maria gets photo credit for the blue butterfly above!)
Maria has been inspiring me for years now. Her journey through this life has been very similar to mine. We’ve had struggles and challenges that mirrored each other. We know that we’ve shared many lives together. When we first met she chose me as a teacher. Even then, I laughed at that. I do believe I inspired her to take the leap and step into her power. But she has done just that so beautifully and completely that she has become an inspiration to countless others.
Just lately, Maria has embarked on a health and fitness journey that has given me encouragement and wisdom and motivation for my own. I’ve received nutrition advice from her and simply been awed by her frequent posts about her progress and her growing strength. So this post is simply to say “Thank you, Maria! Thank you, to my dear friend who frequently shows me where the light is!”
And in case you’d like to learn more about this amazing lady. Maria Bird is a talented hypnotist, who can help you with your very own health and fitness goals, smoking cessation, pain management, self empowerment and many, many other things. If you have goals to reach, Maria can absolutely help you reach them. She can even help with past life regression! Check her out here.
So thank you, my beautiful butterfly. Thanks for stopping by to visit me this morning and bringing strength and motivation and joy in my journey. Keep shining so bright and showing the rest of us what a great idea that is!
