Unfold Your Wings

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”
― C. JoyBell C

So often we stay at a standstill, because the fear of looking ahead into something new scares us. But there is some freedom in just unraveling your wings, having no direction of where to go, but jumping anyway. So many of us get fixated on loss, things we are at fault for, and things that were taken away from us. We focus on pain, and tragic events, and we are so afraid to just set ourselves free and instead believe in life. We are afraid because we have lost, and the idea of losing more, scares us. Believing in life allows transformation, it allows for change, and it allows us to find our greater purpose in this life. We have to trust ourselves, trust our thoughts, trust that once we spread our wings fully we will be carried to our next place of our true purpose. Believe in life for it means we accept what was, but are hopeful for what is in store. Shake off your baggage, and unfold your wings and don’t be afraid to soar high.

  1. Our fears do tend to ground us, don’t they. It reminds me of what Steve Martin said in Roxanne: ” When you’re reaching for a star, there’s a long way to fall.”
