A couple of months ago I received a letter from my Mom, who lives in Hong Kong. And on the envelope I was delighted to see some bird stamps. I used one of them to make this tiny tree.
This blue birdie went out on a limb, which is something I’ve been thinking about doing more of these days.
On the other limb I placed a single feather (representing hope) and a dangling pearl (representing purity and honesty). I also like how the feather is leaf shaped (so perfect for this season of shedding leaves). Sometimes you have to let go of the old to allow space for the new.
For me, trying new things is challenging because I like the familiar and routine. I find comfort in knowing what to expect. However, staying in this safe zone all the time can be very limiting. And I like the idea of living a limitless life.
If you’ve been thinking of going out on the limb more often, I’d be happy to send this tree (shown above) to you as a little visual reminder. The first one who replies (just leave a comment to this post letting me know) can have it.
Thanks and I hope you have fun trying something new this weekend!
