hummingbird-blue-head-rc-416 x 316Why the hummingbird?

I chose the hummingbird as the image behind Encouraging Results in order to remind myself to always incorporate the positive and uplifting characteristics of the hummingbird into every meeting with those I help.

The hummingbird symbolizes:

  • Enjoyment of life
  • The capability to perform amazing feats despite its small size
  • A lightness
  • A feeling of being present int he moment
  • Bringing playfulness and joy into life
  • Swiftness and ability to respond quickly
  • Resiliency and being able to travel great distances tirelessly
  • An openness to love and lightness
  • The ability to change direction quickly and smoothly
  • The ability to fly backwards means we can look back on our past and we can also move forward
  • The beauty in each day, especially the little things

The hummingbird reminds us to:

  • Enjoy lifes simple pleasures
  • Take time to enjoy ourselves
  • To draw in life’s sweetness
  • To be flexible and light in your approach to the unexpected
  • To lighten up your mood when you feel down
  • That we can accomplish what seems impossible while keeping it light and enjoyable
  • To rest often and take time to feed yourself
  • And most importantly, to savor each moment and appreciate what we have.
