A Bird Sitting On A Tree Is Never Afraid

If you've read my book, "Telling Hands," you may have noticed the usage of birds in my writing and images. I love birds, I love a lot of things, but birds in particular. With the latest book promotion I have engaged in, (you can download the Kindle version for free this weekend) I have been very excited about reaching so many across the globe and have refused to let myself get nervous or afraid about it. I know, not everyone will like it.. there will probably be some that won't. There is not a single thing on Earth that every person likes, so I'm okay with that. The internet loves quotes and sayings as much as I do, and there is this one that I have found lately that has meant something to me. "A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not in the branch, but in her own wings." At the end of my book, I included an image of a bluebird flying. As I am growing in my writing career, I can see how accurate of a portrayal that actually is. I am now writing my second book, and still promoting my first. My trust can't be rested on the branch, but in my God given ability to fly.

Moral of the story; believe in yourself, whatever you are trying to do. Inspiration is hard to come by sometimes, so let this inspire you. That is my hope today. Telling Hands is available on Amazon. Literally hundreds are reading the story based on my life, probably right now, and I'm okay with it. ~Jamie Godwin
