If I Could Fly

If I Could Fly.

There are times, when people find themselves at a crossroads in life. Thoughts of Who we are, who we want to be, what we are doing, where we are going, what do we want seems to enter our mindsOften we feel like it is black and white. I always wonder if it actually is. Is it a yes or no answer? Do we need to know everything right this minute? Do we need to have all the answers? Are we that afraid of the unknown that we need to have a program to our life? Sometimes I think people get so caught up with what is next to come, or where they are going next, that we forget to enjoy the ride. We are always in a hurry, but we 'hurry up and wait.' Those who are my age and can honestly say they know exactly who they are and will never change, you're faking it. Having direction is good but to have every single detail of your life planned out is boring. You are allowed to be unsure sometimes, you are allowed to change your mind, your actions, hell even your career. I got my hair done today by a guy who is 35 and changed his career from a writer to a hairstylist but he is also a signed musician and is going to Poland to perform in front of 80,000 people in December. But he just woke up and decided he wanted to do what he had always thought he had an interest in..he changed his mind! I heard someone say the other day that if you spread your wings far enough, you might just fly, you just need to be willing to take the leap. It's kinda cliché but it is true, we need to be willing to take a chance in this life to get somewhere else. So I think it is important to try something that scares you, prove to the ones who doubted you wrong, those mistakes will come and rights will go but be fearless and learn from them, fall in and out love, share your stories and listen to others, leave your phone at home for a day---on purpose, travel, find out what makes you happy and peruse that even if it's not what you thought it was, take in everything that this life has to offer because in the wise words of Coco Chanel, "you live but once, you might as well be amusing."
