You surely don’t have to BE a bird or even a plane to fly free, you only have to break or Let Go the lines that tie you and keep you tethered.
Flying free is an attitude and a way of approaching Life without anchors or stays. It sometimes has taken me a LOT of broken ties to discover HOW-TO fly free. And I certainly regret some of those breaks. On the other hand, many of them surprised me when I learned what they were REALLY “costing” me to hold onto.
I have had some experience with flying solo, and while it does share the stage with flying free, the former is a whole other treasure map while the latter isn’t containable in any sort of map one can hold onto. In fact, that is one of the secrets I’ve discovered about flying free. It’s impossible to predict or contain. It is one of those truly It Is What It Is things.
I’ve struggled against the solo flight my Life has been on for nearing 7 years. I’ve wanted to hold onto what was holding me back and keeping me stuck. I’ve been willing to hang tight to the familiar pain rather than lean into the less familiar possibilities for freedom.
There is always a reason for freedom.
I love you, Currie
