Once upon a time, in a tropical green forest, there lived a wise old owl. He had seen many things in his long life and learned many lessons. One day, a young bird came to him, asking for advice.  “Master,” said the little bird, “I don’t know what my purpose is. I am not the strongest or the fastest, and I am not the most beautiful. I do not know what I can do to make a difference in this world.”

The wise old owl smiled and said, “My dear, you have a gift that only you can give. You have a beautiful voice, and when you sing, you bring joy and hope to others. Your song can lift the spirits of those who are sad and give hope to those who are lost.”  The little bird was surprised. He had never thought of her singing as anything special. But the wise old owl was right. She began to sing more often, and soon, other animals in the forest would gather to listen to her sweet melodies. As the little bird sang more and more, she noticed that the animals around her were happier and jolly. They were more content, and their lives seemed brighter. She realized that her singing was making a difference in the world.

The wise old owl watched as the little bird’s confidence grew, and her song became even more beautiful. He knew that the little bird had learned a valuable lesson – that even the smallest acts of kindness can have a big impact on the world around us. The little bird continued to sing, and her music spread beyond the forest. People from far and wide came to hear her sing, and her songs brought joy to millions. And the little bird knew that she had found her purpose in life – to bring happiness to others through her beautiful voice.

And so, the little bird lived happily ever after, knowing that she had made a difference in the world.
