Today I was sitting in the hammock when a grasshopper jumped on my shoulder and visited with me for awhile. My husband said he thought grasshoppers meant good luck in chinese culture. I do know that Native American culture believes all animals bring us messages. When an animal makes an unusual appearance in your life, it is time to listen and take note of their message.

Here is the Grasshopper’s message, according to the website

If Grasshopper has sprung into your life;
You are being asked to take a leap of faith. Just go ahead and do it without knowing the outcome. Usually this is something that you have been avoided doing and is often linked to a large scale change in direction. This can be a change in relationship, career or a change in yourself. Know that you have the wisdom that you need to get past any obstacles in an efficient manner. For the most part all possible outcomes will be positive.

This is so perfect for me right now. This is exactly how I am feeling and what I have been talking to my friends and family about. I am headed into a new endeavor that I never planned on having but all the stars aligned and it feels right. The kicker is that I really have no idea where it will take me. I do not know what I will do at the end of this experience/education. However, I am truly comfortable in this not-knowing. I am ready to enjoy the ride and see where it goes.

It’s just such an odd sensation for me not to have a plan or definitive goal, other than just finishing what I started. But I know it will all work out.
