The power of a spirit animal is meant to depict a member of the animal kingdom that embodies and conveys your natural, wild soul. It also happens to be mentioned in a show Kelsey has been fond of recently. The title is Alexa and Katie and the series depicts two best friends, one battling cancer as a teenager. The show actually helps Kelsey feel better as she watches the struggles of these fictional characters. Though they are in High School, Kelsey finds a connection in each episode.
Thus, when we walked into Build A Bear for a birthday party recently, the struggle to select a furry companion was real. She contemplated and debated. She paced and wandered. She almost selected the colorful, rainbow bear like most of the other girls. And then, she saw the one.
The rainbow tailed unicorn, dressed in an ice cream dress was named Addison after the main character of Zombies. Before bed on the night we brought her home, Kelsey shared that Addison was, in fact, her spirit animal. She claimed that the free spirit and colorful tail of her new furry friend was indeed how she feels inside. Addison was “channeling her inner self.”
Unbelievable, I thought.
Though her imagination astounds me, I truly see the reflection.
