Chameleon Crazy Critter - Greeting Card
The most common conception about the chameleon is that it changes its colour to match its environment. Perhaps suggesting we too should adjust ourselves to blend into where we are. However the Chameleon will also change his colour to suit his mood. So alternately the symbolic lesson the chameleon teaches is not always adjust for the sake of blending in (hiding from threat). Nope - the chameleon beckons us to don every colour of the rainbow with a goal to express ourselves creatively and with flair.
Chameleons embody that famous quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Adopt the pace of Nature. Her secret is patience." How so? Well, as far as lizards go, the chameleon is quite slow. It doesn't skitter around in a flash, but rather takes its own pace. It doesn't rush, it doesn't scramble. Why not? Well, it seems the chameleon instinctively knows that all things come in their own good time. Chameleons are known for going long periods without food. Their slower pace allows them to conserve energy. In essence, this quaint creature understands that the next opportunity is coming - so why rush? This is a huge symbolic lesson for us modern-day humans. The chameleon reminds us that Nature provides. It reminds us to stop pushing and rushing to grab and get. Rather, be connected, stay tuned with the rhythms of Nature - our opportunity will come - if only we are patient and confident our reward will come to us in that perfect moment of calm expectancy.
So.. be colourful, be beautiful, be patient.. and above all always wear your weird like a cape draped across your shoulders!
