You’ve been standing still for far too long with your feet in one spot … turning the same possibilities over and over again in your head. The days aren’t getting any longer and you’re not getting any younger.
The time has come for you to spread your wings. Others may not approve and may even scowl at your need to do what moves you.
Don’t let yourself be distracted by their expectations. Be brave enough to ask yourself what expections you hold for your own life. Be prepared for the unexpected.
Thousands of geniuses live and die undiscovered — either by themselves or by others.
~ Mark Twain
You may have felt the need for some time to stand on the rock and show the whole marsh world who you are.
I’m no angel, but I’ve spread my wings a bit.
~ Mae West
On the other hand, your wing-spreading may be spurred by a growing desire to explore and employ your talents. How better than by using them could you express gratitude and praise to the One who gave them to you?
Fear not. Don’t get rattled by the sound of the wind blowing through your feathers as you begin to spread them. If you dare, others may even take your lead and follow with a little wing-spreading of their own.
Setting an example is not the main means of influencing another. It is the only means.
~ Albert Einstein
