Graceful As A Swan


💕For the Love of Swans 💕 

I'm a bird nerd dabbler, which means I am NOT a walking encyclopedia of bird knowledge, but rather I love watching bird activity as they flutter about in nature or when they arrive eagerly to feeders. 

So, when I was told about the Trumpeter swans that gather at an area Minnesota lake, the anticipation of seeing these graceful swans was very alluring.

To me, swans remind me of a fairytale vision as they gracefully and elegantly glide across the water, often in pairs, which adds to their special love language.

The Hard Path Quote


When you find yourself on the hard path that life often brings, do you frame it with a "poor me" narrative or do you discover the lessons and growth within the struggle?  The hard path kind of sucks when you're in it.  But, take time to reframe the struggle and embrace the new knowledge and strength that comes from it.

I climbed the stairs to the top of an observation tower to get this view.  As the cool crisp breeze grazed my cheeks, I took a look around at the wintery scene and I found it exhilarating.  I recognized how following new paths, experiencing new adventures and rethinking the struggle is absolutely empowering. 

The effort it takes by truly participating in your life is better than sulking as a bystander from the sidelines. 😎
