Each of us has a song to sing, just as birds do.
Part of knowing who we are is appreciating our own songs.
Are our songs gentle like the robin’s, or are we brilliant leaders like the bluejay?
Are we easy to be around like the sparrow, or do we radiate joy and laughter like the loon?
Each of these birds has something special to offer. So do we, with our own unique personalities and talents. What a waste it would be if the loon never dashed across the lake because he wanted to be a robin instead.
It is important to learn who we are and to believe we are special in our own way.
We give joy to the world around us when we sing our own songs.
Have I listened to my own song lately?
