A Bird’s Eye View

Standard
A Bird’s Eye View

A unique opportunity presented itself to our family this past June.  Having a lovely Forsythia Wreath on our front door was not only appealing to our visitors, but to two very intelligent nest builders. My family discovered a bird’s nest carefully crafted on the wreath laying against our front glass storm door giving us a bird’s eye view of 4 baby birds! It was a perfect spot for the family of birds as it provided much shelter. The birds inspired learning, a song, kindness, and amazement.  My family and I learned baby birds grow and leave the nest within a matter of weeks. My daughter was inspired to sing an original song to the baby birds, our kind construction crew worked around the birds until they flew away, and lastly it was truly amazing to watch the baby birds’ journey from newborn without feathers to feathered fliers.  This was definitely an experience that created much happiness!

Watch their transformation paired with an original song by Juliet.

About Tiffany

Hi, I am Tiffany and I am blogging about creating "Your Happy". Before having my own children, I happily taught 5th and 6th graders for several years. My first love in education was Psychology which I received a Bachelor of Arts. I then decided to pursue a Master in Education to become a classroom teacher. Having taught many students and then my own children, I became very interested in understanding why some children seem to have an easier time socially than others. I have been recently reading about Positive Psychology. I want to share the information that I have found very helpful in my own life. I am not an expert in happiness but only a new purposeful creator of my own happy. There is a balance to achieve for happiness that is being discussed and researched by psychologists. My intent is to introduce this new information so that you may use it to create "Your Happy". I also want to share "My Happy" because that is part of my balance towards happiness. Helping others has always been a passion of mine. Doing your passion is part of the balance towards being happy. It is so important to recognize that we are all responsible for creating our own happiness. The first concept I want to share is: if you are happy, success will follow. Unfortunately, the belief typically is: if you are successful, you will be happy. I am thankful to Wordpress.com for giving me a place to blog. I am also very grateful to those dedicated to doing the research in this area. I am looking forward to creating this blog and having a place to share "Our Happy".
