I created this wreath mandala inspired by a couple of wreaths I found while researching for this week’s mandalas of the day images. As I look at it now, I see it as a portal and as a symbol of expansion. Ideas for colors are already popping into my head.
In the Persian Empire, wreaths were believed to be a symbol of importance and success, and were worn as headbands. Ancient Greeks placed wreaths of laurel on the heads of victorious athletes in their Olympic Games. Wreaths were worn similarly to crowns by Roman leaders and were also hung on doorways as a sign of victory.
Why wait for big things to happen, celebrate even the littlest of victories. All big achievements are built upon a whole bunch of little wins along the way. When we celebrate the little victories it allows us to find joy DURING the process rather than waiting for it only at the finish line.
