A hummingbird landed on my finger. Seriously. Walking down the street with my mom, I thought a large dragonfly passed by, so I pointed to be sure my mom saw it. It was a very LARGE dragonfly… a hummingbird landed on my finger.
I was (and still am) astounded. I always love it when wild creatures come to us humans, and this experience took the cake. Then she sat there for a while, looking around like she didn’t have a care in the world. Of course I could not feel her weight, but the memory fills my heart.
I’m not sure how this relates to being motivated in our work, I just wanted to share the story. It’s definitely a great example of how the most unexpected things happen when we reach out. I did not even have to ask–though I am a huge fan of hummingbirds so I like to think she sensed that.
What unexpected bluebirds* have you experienced lately? I’d love to hear!
