The Gift of Little Feather

Little Feather starts the day by giving the gift of herself. She knows she can help you smile when you are down or help you practice the way you entice her to be seen. She helps without the expectation of anything in return. This small Southern Bobcat shares a different perspective about helping others by helping you see the unseen.

Enter the realm of the unseen by closing your eyes and relaxing. Little Feather knows there are many obvious ways to help. Then, there is the kind of help that may not be seen as being an act of assistance such as learning a new language so you can talk to more people, inviting someone who isn't motivated enough to exercise on their own to join you on your daily walk, sharing flowers from your garden, offering to babysit for a busy parent or donating pet food to an animal shelter. She also asks you to think about helping the world by picking up one piece of trash off the street everyday, choosing not to drive your car once a week, planting a tree or throwing wildflower seeds onto a vacant lot that will help the lives of others including birds and insects.

You can help Little Feather by sending her a heart hug. She has shared an ancient truth-helping others is the best way you can help yourself.
