Folded wings won’t help you fly

I know you have secrets, baby. Those dreams you have that are so bold you dare not speak them. That vision for your life that is so vast and so bright you can only squint in its direction.

Those dreams, that vision, those gifts, are a peak into your potential. So why are you keeping them secret? Why are you superstitiously guarding them?

Here’s a hint: the (misplaced) shame of potential failure keeps us frozen on the spot. Or only inching toward our full potential. Walking tentatively like a bird on foot, ineffectually picking its way forward, eyes on the ground, heading nowhere far and nowhere fast.   

Here’s the thing. You, dear one, are here for a reason. And you were designed to fly. You’ll cover more ground that way, after all. 

So if you’ve been warily making your way on foot, with wings clasped close to your body, hear this: folded wings won’t help you fly. 

It’s time to forgo the fear and un-confine yourself. Trust in your in-born buoyancy. Unfold those wings. Feel their width. Train your eyes on your destination. Then leap. 

Each wingbeat is the pulse of your purpose, thrusting you forward toward full potential. It takes commitment and strength to fly, yes, but your soul is streamlined to slip through resistance and keep you soaring ever onward, every forward, ever upward. 

Spread those wings. Use your gifts. Go for it. Commit to your right to flight.
