Lessons from Hummingbirds (And Chicago Training week 6 recap)

“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 saw this quote this weekend and loved it.  Hummingbirds are smart. 🙂 I spent the weekend doing something I haven’t done in far too long:  putting every single worry/stress aside, enjoying the richness of my life and laughing.  And it was delicious. 🙂
