Symbolic of …..
Strength. Longevity. Endurance. Persistence. Order.
Creation. Patience. Stability. Innocence. Protection.
And the continuation of life (sometimes against incredible odds).
They are the wisest of souls in the animal kingdom.
Having this beautiful creature cross my path on a busy road sent my mind on a path of its own. Only I could be inspired by a turtle it seems. And only I would stop a car in the middle of a busy road….. to take pictures of a turtle.
But the more I thought about it and read about turtles, the more it appeared to be a message from the universe. It was a message for myself and for others it seemed.
So what did this turtle come to tell us?
Take it easy.
Take life one day at a time.
Accept what comes your way and keep moving forward.
Do not react, but do protect yourself.
Your pace does not matter.
Never compare your speed to the speed of someone else in life’s race. The slower and steadier ones, are the ones who usually win in the end. You will get there.
And never give up. You’ve got this!
