The legend of the hummingbird

Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.

I say we should all try to be more like the hummingbird. To float through life with grace. To open our eyes to the beauty in front of us and to stop searching for beauty in material things. To laugh everyday because it soothes the soul. To be positive that things will all fall into place and to just live life to the fullest.

It came at a moment when I really needed it! It just reminds me how important our personal relationships are and that we should all be more sensitive to the ones around us. Let’s stop being so self-absorbed (me first!) and take a moment to do something thoughtful for someone else.
