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.



Rock bottom…

Everyone knows that can’t eat, can’t sleep, hide under the covers all day crying your eyes out feeling. We walk through life so blessed that we forget about these times till the walls come crashing down and we hit rock bottom. I wish I could say I had the miracle fix to this, but I don’t. I wish I had some inspiration for you during these times, but loss hurts. So what do you do? You cry, and hurt, but you find yourself in these places. As I placed a yellow rose into the ground this week, with tears clouding my eyes, I am brought back to memories of the past. The pain I felt then and now are exactly the same, but time has healed those wounds, and hopefully time will heal these as well. You can never forget the memories, for they are haunting during these times, but it is these memories which will continue to help you remember the good that’s left behind. We can only press forward to a greater place, of remembrance, joy, and blessing. We are blessed to have had the moments to share, and are blessed with the impact left on us. We must go forth and remember nothing stays forever. In a split second, life could change, and everything could be lost. So enjoy each and every embrace, and always remember to love yourself.
