I know this is a bit random, but it’s pretty fun.

Inspired by a hilarious skit on SNL (with Melissa McCarthy and a group of moms wearing sweaters with their spirit animals on them), I decided that I needed to play with this idea a bit.

What’s my spirit animal? 

I started with some very serious research.  I Googled: “How do you find out what your spirit animal is?”  You have to try these quizzes I found:

My results…

A giant anteater…not so attractive.  I agree, I have a big heart and do appreciate alone time, but I’m not sure that I see myself as a wandering recluse…yet.  A soft and cuddly appearance…three babies in three years, I totally agree with soft.

But the result I most related to was…

The symbolic meaning of the owl:

  • Intuition, ability to see what others do not see
  • The presence of the owl announces change
  • Capacity to see beyond deceit and masks (to cut through illusions and see the real meaning of someone’s action or state of mind).
  • Wisdom
  • The traditional meaning of the owl spirit animal is the announcer of death, most likely symbolic like a life transition, change
  • you probably like to explore the unknown

I definitely love change and exploring the unknown.  That’s where my creative mind has its fun.  I’m also leery of people who come across as disingenuous.

Anyways, I won’t be running out to pick up a new owl sweater anytime soon or a great pair of owl socks, but it was fun to play around with this for a bit.  I hope you have fun with it too.
