My dad used to say that when he was little, he imagined being a polar bear all cuddled up in the snow....with no worries in the world. I think that's a good thing to have, your own little power animal. Just being able to imagine you're someone else for a while. It can be so nice getting out of your own skin now and then.
I'm not sure what my power animal is. But the otter isn't a bad start.
