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.
Too often we forget what it’s like to be completely free. Whether it’s free from worry and anxiety or free from obligations.. just to be free. When was the last time you felt it? Really, ask yourself that. We’ve all felt it at some point of our lives. Then why is it so hard to keep up with it? Why wouldn’t we want to feel that joyful feeling that makes our hearts swell a little? Why is it so difficult to just let go and laugh? Hours later, maybe even days later (in my case, years later), that happy feeling stays with you. Free yourself up to feel that joy. Because once you’ve felt it, there’s absolutely no going back.
