This Stylish Spotted Seagull is number 9 of my Strange Birds. Even though I don’t live anywhere near the sea, we do see seagulls here. They show up when the fields are freshly ploughed to pick the worms and insects that are exposed.
Seagulls are opportunistic, they go where there’s food, so they remind you to go where the best resources are. To not deny yourself opportunities because you feel comfortable and safe in your comfort zone, to step out of it and pursue the best conditions for your well-being, to look in unexpected places for opportunities.
The Seagull has no problem speaking its mind and letting its voice be heard, so it can serve as a reminder for you to do the same.
Another lesson the Seagull has for you is to make the most of what you have and not to waste your resources. Maybe you need to recycle your content more often?
