A Little Encouragement

Jun 2024

On my beach run this morning, I saw this shorebird choking.

I stopped and started telling her, “You can do it, you can do it,” and several seconds later out popped a chunk of something slimy. Okay, I may have looked a bit odd talking to a bird…it’s just my nature, if I see suffering, I want to help.

It’s the same for people, whether it’s someone experiencing distress, hardship, agony, or someone feeling upset or stuck…I’m eager to assist.

Is there someone you know who could use a little encouragement? A friend, neighbor, co-worker, family member? Send them a quick text and let them know you’re thinking about them. One tiny gesture can make someone’s entire day.

I was so happy the bird was fine and thank frickin’ goodness I didn’t have to do the Heimlich.

Have a Zenatudinal Day!
