Life Lessons from a Trapped Hummingbird

  Life Lessons From a Trapped Hummingbird The other day I walked into a garage and a tiny hummingbird was struggling to find its way out. The tiny fellow kept flying up into the ceiling for hours. I tried opening just the garage door and turning off all the lights, and yet it did not recognize the solution to its predicament.

Probably not, but here in the US, Monday the 4th is a holiday, so I will just take one day instead. I am a ‘sketch it out before painting’ kind of girl. So to create this weekly log, I found a simple leaf […]

Live life more fully today than you did yesterday

Discovering My Inner Muse

Live life more fully today than you did yesterday. Original quote by me. I have seen many YouTube videos and read {the excerpts of} books suggesting to choose just one word to theme your year/life around. I liked this sentence more than I liked just a word for a mantra. But I guess if I were to squash that sentence down into one word, it would be “INSPIRE”. I want to help other people grow into more than what they were, see that they have the potential to do so much more than they have been. I think I have […]
