I believe we have all got wings. However, there are times when they might be broken. When they might need a rest. To recharge. To heal. To recover. Or just grow. To fill up with energy. Power. Life.
Until the moment comes, when those beautiful, strong wings can spread again, or spread wide open for the very first time. When you can finally spread your wings and fly...
All of us face some challenging times in our lives. Some smaller, some bigger. Less important, more important, that change something, that change everything. It might be nothing for someone else, but it might mean the world to us. At that specific moment. In that specific situation. In that specific stage of life.
I thought I lost my wings at a certain point. My beautiful, strong wings. That I was stuck in a cage, all locked up, powerless to fly. I could have easily gotten out, I was free to move, but I couldn't fly. I could have borrowed a pair of wings, but I wanted my real ones. I lost them somewhere on the way. And all I wanted was to fly...
During the flightless times, I suffered. But as the "fly-free" time was there, taking me all in, and not letting me go, I realised I had to find something to get through this stage. That gave me hope, courage, strength, control.
That eventually led me to the realisation that I have actually never lost my wings. That they have always been there, just needed a break, and some time to recharge. Like after a long flight, preparing for the next one.
Do yourself a favour. It will be my new blog post series. Where I will share with you some of my little findings that helped me through some really tough times. To feel a bit better. To get away from sadness, uncertainty, fear, anger, guilt, grief. Just some of the usual stuff that many face but never really talk about. Often some very basic, and really easy techniques, but that can actually make a lot of difference. At least they did for me. Sometimes. :) Inspired by moments spent in New Zealand. :)
It might not always work. It might not work for you. It's purpose is just to be out there, for those who can make a little use of it. Maybe you. :) Cos you might never really think of it. Like I had not, until someone or something made me realise how powerful these little, simple things could be. That turn out to have quite a big effect.
I would also love to hear if you have any good ones to share, too. Cos it might be too obvious for me that I would never even think of it myself. :)
Life is a journey. Everyone traveling his/her own. No competition. Just traveling. But together. :)
Will keep you posted. :)
