An Analogy...

I’ve always adore birds. Even my pet name was 'Bird' at one time.

If I would compare myself to anything, I would associate myself with a Humming Bird.

It’s the smallest bird in the world. What it lacks in size, it makes up for it in intelligence.

Like me, I’m not 5foot 6 nor do I have the most beautiful looks. But I try as much to feed my hunger for knowledge & make full use of it every now and then.

I would consider myself a free spirited person. I’m not afraid to take up on challenges in life. Like the Humming Birds. They will fight to death to defend their territory. Even the smallest of The Hummingbird will take on other larger species. As for me, the greater the challenge, the more I’m determined to overcome it.

 

Exceptionally, these birds can also fly backwards, and are the only group of birds able to do so. Which I found unique & uniqueness is what help distinguish myself from others.

There are varieties of Humming Birds & they come in many colors.                     (Like in The Picture above)

I love this fact just because I think I have colorful life experiences. These humming birds just signify that.

A humming bird’s favorite color is red, same as mine.                                         How great of a coincidence is that? 

Ha Ha Ha.

 

Hummingbirds do not spend all day flying, as the energy cost would be unaffordable; the majority of their activity consists simply of sitting or perch on branches.

Like the Humming bird, I won’t join in a laborious work unless I feel the urge to do so. As lethargic as it may sound, I prefer lying in my bed reading books or sitting in front of my laptop for hours. Or join in the kitchen rather than getting sunburn outside.

By saying that I didn’t mean that I’m sick or have low metabolism or anything like that, hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of all animals. I’m grateful for my health. I do enjoy sports & extreme activities. It just happens that I like indoor, laid-back activities more.
