We can all learn something from the birds
Posted On 05/20/2021 19:44:03 by momtocam

Today, my sweet neighbor and I were watching the birds outside her living room window...something we enjoy quite often. My mind took me to a simpler time in life, when things seemed more carefree. One could certainly lower their blood pressure just by looking out a window to observe the birds in their neck of the woods. I’ve decided do just that, and to focus more on nature and what the new spring season will bring to my yard. 

Since the earliest times of man, birds have inspired our deepest imaginations. Fearless and free in the sky, they make us wonder, what would it be like to fly? While none of us can sprout wings, we can all simply observe and learn from these majestic creatures. They can teach us how to create a beautiful life. How amazing it would be if we trusted our own instincts like birds do.

Life is created in such a way so as to enable us to withstand the challenges and overcome the hardships they bring. Undoubtedly birds show us the perfect example of this. Their patience and perseverance stand out in all that they do to survive.

While none of us can sprout wings, we can all simply observe and learn from the birds on how to create a beautiful life. Below are six life lessons...inspired by our winged friends.

1. Be confident- birds learn to trust themselves before they take off in the sky. So have faith in your abilities and know that you will find a warm current to soar in.

2. Let your colors shine- Different birds have different hues..be bright, and make sure you aren’t hiding what makes you one-of-a-kind.

3. Show up early....and often- The legendary early bird gets the worm for a reason. Find something worth showing up for, and then show up every single day.

4. Go with the seasons- Birds thrive despite changes in their environment. Be flexible and go with the flow, trusting your ability to always find a branch to land on.

5. Flock together- Birds seek strength and sustenance from one another. Keep friends and family close by as you navigate the days ahead.

6. Spread your wings- Eventually, all birds must leave the nest and become what they are meant to be. Have no fear of falling...we live life forward, but will only understand it looking back in the years to come.

Just remember we possess the same ability as birds; to create something from nothing...allowing ideas and thoughts to guide our actions and behaviors. The ability to use our sense of feeling instead of thinking, to allow ourselves to be our own creators.

So this weekend, I am going to replenish all of my bird feeders outside. I am looking forward to learning something new from our feathered friends.

We love watching the birds at our feeders, even though we don't have much of a variety. I think we need more trees, not just the large pine trees... and less scrub brush. Thanks for posting a very interesting topic.
