PICTURE IT WELL: find your path to joy

Anna's Hummingbird. © Curt Given/Given Photography 2017Nature offers all kinds of simple pleasures that can bring you much joy in an instant. You only need to be aware of your surroundings to experience it. Hummingbirds, for example, are symbolic of love and goodness. They remind us to seek out the good and beauty in life everyday. Next time a hummingbird crosses your path, stop for a moment, enjoy this tiny bird's beautiful colors and energy, then make its message your own.

PICTURE IT WELL photos from givenphoto.com symbolize some aspect of well-being. The brief text is meant to inspire you and demonstrate the uplifting power of nature.

Be the one who has moxie

A peaceful way

Letting go

See the abundance in your life

Dig into your roots

Play it up in the new year

Do one thing

Reflect for growth
