“In seeking happiness for others, you will find it in yourself.”
Today marks the completion of four months of daily positivity for Kurilane! This week, I’ve been focused on spreading kindness as part of the plan to launch my tornado-of-kindness campaign, and like I said yesterday, I keep attracting stories about acts of kindness because that’s the energy I’m sending out.
In perfect synchronicity, I came across a unique and inspiring rescue story about a man, a dog and a hummingbird today. Aside from the fact that the story itself demonstrates that we attract the same energy back into our own experience as we send out, it’s very fitting as the topic for today’s post because Kurilane’s logo is comprised of a hummingbird, a lily and a lane.
Ever since I completed the logo design in mid February, I’ve wanted to write about the meaning and symbolism behind my logo. I deliberately chose the site name, the fonts, the colors, the lily and the hummingbird for very specific reasons, but I haven’t written about it because I haven’t come up with the right name for my hummingbird yet. It’s been in the back of my mind, and this article inspired me to finalize her name in honor of today’s post. Besides, my sweet little hummingbird has gone without a name for long enough!
Of course, this rescue story is one I would normally share anyway, for so many reasons – it’s an act of kindness that has come full circle and returned the kindness to the originator of the act; it’s an inspiring and uplifting story, and it’s about giving a home to a rescue, which is something near and dear to my heart.
The best part of this story is that the man sums up the impact a single act of kindness can have in one sentence by saying “I rescue this dog, he rescues the bird, the bird rescues all of us in a weird sense, and it’s just a miracle.”
It is a miracle. An everyday miracle. We live in a world of absolute harmony, and that’s what the meaning behind my logo is too. Hummer not only saved the dog and the man in the story, but she helped my hummingbird get her name. I’ve written about all the symbolism behind the Kurilane logo here.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
