"The bird who dares to fall is the bird who learns to fly."
I love that quote. I've been thru a lot of hard times. I've experienced failure and heart ache and abuse and depression and etc etc etc.
I shut down for a long time. Too afraid to be hurt again, afraid to be in pain, to suffer, afraid to be sad, afraid to just FEEL.
When Phoebe was born I couldn't deny it any longer.... I was merely existing.
Time to LIVE.
Time to do the scary things.
Take the leap of faith.
Set BIG audacious goals.
Push my limits.
Try all the things I previously labeled impossible and just SEE what I can do.
And yes, be willing to fall.
Because it comes with the potential of FLYING.
Four years down this new path and I can sincerely say....... that commitment to focus on continual PROGRESS was the best commitment I ever made.
