Hummingbird



A Hummingbird was resting on sheer space, when a Sparrow chirped nearby.

"Hi Hummingbird, how are you?"

"I am good Sparrow. What about you?"

"I am fine my friend, but I have a question."

"Sure."

The Sparrow let out his doubt, "Life is about moving ahead. However, I often find you flying backwards. Why do you do that?"

The Hummingbird replied smilingly, "Sometimes we have to go back to learn how to move forward, to not make the same mistakes again, in present and future. Going back doesn't slow you down. Instead, it makes you stronger, wiser and better."

  7. Wonderful lesson to learn from the hummingbird. It's always important to look back at our past and learn from the mistakes that we committed. Only then we can move forward fearlessly.
