As long as you are happy
with who you are
never mind what the world
says who you should be.
Be as this turtle
not caring a fig
even if he is carrying
more then his shell.
It is in the moments like this one when I was looking at this young snapping turtle that I was fully alive. The more time I spend with Nature the more I prefer that environment then to my own kind. I really like who I am and it is so darn cool that because of who I am, I am being shown some incredible things within the Natural Kingdom.
I am so humbled and so in awe of who and what is crossing paths with me. Some people are so clueless at the Gifts Mother does give us. I actually witnessed a young idiota attempting to get closer to a Great Blue Heron with camera in hand, even though that great bird was extremely close as it was. She had no idea what a Gift she was being given that was right in front of her. She forced the Heron to fly off because she was just came too close.
*Saying with clenched teeth … and she ruined a golden opportunity for me.*
And there she stood swearing up a storm and yelling that this bird had the nerve to fly off. News flash. This park I go to is not a petting zoo and these are real live wild birds and animals that are allowing us the privilege to photograph them. You walk softly and slowly and “feel” when you’ve gotten close enough, then you photograph. When you gain their respect what transpires will leave one’s mouth hanging open.
I will not ever take it for granted what I am being shown by Mother. I am walking in a world that transcends time itself. So I walk like this Turtle not caring a fig if others don’t like who I am. I like me and I will continue to honor Mother in all I do within my life. And I will also continue to show all of you those Gifts I am given. My Intention is for you to realize how incredibly fortunate I am, being the woman I am.
