I have a beautiful pet cockatiel (small parrot-like bird) named Pearl. Pearl is also very aware that she is beautiful. In fact, she is aware of a lot of things that seem to come naturally to her, but which I have often struggled with.
In that way, she is almost like the poster-bird for recovery. So I thought it was high time I stopped hogging all her wisdom to myself, and started sharing some of it with you!
: Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder (and in Pearl's eyes, she is a perfect '10')
The moment Pearl wakes up in the morning, she wants me to take her into the bathroom. Why? Because she wants to wish herself good morning.
