The hummingbird symbolises joy and playfulness
Reminding me to create opportunities for love and laughter in my life.
The hummingbird tells one to be more present
Persuading me that the only moment that truly matters is right now.
The hummingbird is a beacon of light and optimism
Convincing me that the darkness can never beat me.
The hummingbird teaches resiliency and adaptability
Proving to me that life will not break me.
This is my latest sketch to commemorate the selection of my new totem animal. I feel the hummingbird, and its symbolism, remind me of the way my mother lived her life. She was taken from me six years ago. I now forge my path ahead without her guidance, love and support. I hope this little hummingbird will give me a sense of strength for the arduous road ahead.
