The Bird in the Parking Lot

Allow your time alone to empower you

My wife and I were coming out of the supermarket on the way to our car this past Saturday.

As we approached our car, we heard the most beautiful songbird. The bird was sitting in this little tree in a median in the parking lot. All by itself, it found this tree that was obviously planted after the parking lot was made.




Many of us, especially Empaths and sensitive souls, have a desire for a gentler world. This space is for you! Share and read stories about noticing and releasing Harshness. Let’s inspire one another on practicing Gentleness.
