Fly... Be Free

Here's some more wisdom from the Eagles, from one of my favorite rowdy 1970's dance songs:

"So oftentimes it happens that we live our lives in chains, and we never even know we have the key."

We all are so much more powerful than we sometimes believe we are. We are divine, we are incredibly precious, and we are all amazing children of God. Every single one of us. I often think back to when my children were tiny new-born babies. How I loved and protected those precious babes, and how I dreamed for their future. Well, now that they are grown it sometimes takes some remembering that they are just as precious today, and need just as much love and care (albeit in different ways), as when they were tiny. And remember, each of us is someone's baby! Even if our mothers are no longer with us, we still need to be cherished, and loved, and encouraged to blossom and grow. We can do that for one another.

So... go and fly. Find the power within you to become your very best self! Listen to that still small voice. Be good. Do good. Grow your wings. Fly.
