"You'll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go agaisnt the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though everybody is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit it." -M.H

I always noticed the hummingbirds. They seemed to follow me everywhere I went. They especially showed up whenever the self-doubt began and I was on the verge of giving up.

The hummingbird is a symbol of resilience, as it is capable of the most amazing feats despite its small size. Whenever I see a hummingbird it serves as a reminder to continue being adaptable and resilient while maintaining a playful and optimistic outlook.


Following your dreams isn't as glamorous and easy as its made to seem...if so, everyone would be doing it. Thats what I find most upsetting. When people settle. Settle for the ordinary when they could have extraordinary.

If theres anything I have learned throughout the process, you must be yourself, know your strengths and limitations, stop comparing yourself! And always, always adapt. You are YOUnique for a reason, you have to have that extra spark that distinguishes yourself from everybody else doing the same thing for a reason. Never hide who you truly are, go out a show the world your brilliance.

So next time when you're thinking about quitting, think of a hummingbird.
