Whenever I see dragonflies, I think about all those summers I spent with my cousins as kids catching these tiny, magnificent creatures and holding them captive in tiny jars and then setting them free before sundown.
Looking back now, it was pretty cruel but we were kids and we didn't know any better. We were making the most out of summer vacations and making our childhoods last before it's gone forever. Years later, I found out we weren't the only ones who spent their summers outdoors catching all sorts of insects we can find that don't gross us out enough.
In most parts of the world, dragonflies symbolize change. And with change comes new perspective and realizations — the kind of change that takes place in an emotional and mental level. It makes you dig deeper into the way you understand life and what matters the most. The dragonfly is a good harbinger to this as their totem represent adaptability and wisdom of transformation. If that's the kind of energy you'd like to attract in life, then you might want to consider lovely dragonfly tattoos like these.
