Take Flight

My son wanted to fly. He believed in himself and used his imagination and took a glorious flight with his shadow.

Today I would like to encourage you to take flight in the sense that Merriam-Webster describes it as in definition #5.

: a brilliant, imaginative, or unrestrained exercise or display<a flight of fancy>

While the Wright brothers made flight physically possible I would like to suggest the same principles exist in taking flight emotionally and mentally.

“The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who, in their grueling travels across trackless lands in prehistoric times, looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space, at full speed, above all obstacles, on the infinite highway of the air.”- Wilbur Wright

More than anything else the sensation is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost, if you can conceive of such a combination.”- Wilbur Wright

“Do not let yourself be forced into doing anything before you are ready.”- Wilbur Wright

In order for your mind and soul to soar freely, at maximum capacity, rising above all life’s obstacles you must believe in yourself. Once you believe, peace will overcome you allowing to take that leap of faith and your imagination will guide your flight.

Hope this video and blog post encourage you to believe in yourself and use your imagination.

Enjoy your flight,

    Why is it so hard to believe in ourselves when it seems like everyone else believes in us? You are inspiring, sweet soul!

    I was thinking the same thing this morning about how we don’t believe we are beautiful, smart or talented until someone else tells us we are. Well, now I can believe I am inspiring 🙂

    Thank you Alexandra. Capturing that moment inspired me greatly and I wanted to share that with the world.

    Turbulence is all part of the flight, right. At least you know you are actually flying if you’re experience it. Keep at it 🙂

    Thanks Cindy. I felt the same way when reading that quote. He did a great job of describing the experience in a way that future generations could relive it.
