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.
The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
But it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life.
You can spend your life wallowing in despair wondering why you are the one who was led towards the road strewn with pain, or you can be grateful that you are strong enough to survive it.
Whisper gently to yourself and provide assurance that you really are extending your best effort.
Console your bruised and tender spirit with reminders of many other successes.
Offer comfort in practical and tangible ways – as if you are encouraging your dearest friend.
Recognize that on certain days the greatest grace is that the day is over and you get to close your eyes.
Tomorrow comes more brightly…
And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one.
Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul.
Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive actions.
It matters wheres you are and what you’re doing.
Get out there!
Sing the song in your heart and
NEVER let anyone shut you up!
Plan a takeoff.
Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane.
It simply won’t happen.
Change your attitude and gain some altitude.
Believe me, you’ll love it up here.
Action will delineate and define you.
This is a power you can cultivate.
If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind.
Thats the only thing you should be trying to control.
Congratulation, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.
