You are meant to fly.


Certainly, some famous dialogue adaptations from Toni Morrison’s novel, “Song of Solomon,” holds all the explanation within.

“If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.”

Now and again, regardless of the amount we attempt to maintain a strategic distance from it, life challenges us. The specific idea of being human is to believe, to encounter life, and with that comes the back and forth movement of good times and bad times.

The bad times we experience in life often come in from all angles and from numerous roads. Frequently, in any case, it isn’t the actual pain that winds up harming us the most, but instead our emphasis on clutching that pain more than we need to.

How regularly in life when somebody has harmed us do we mull it over what? Why? How much do we like to diminish self-control and at the same time squandering our energy on continuously thinking about the past? It is as though we feel we are rebuffing that person by thinking dreadful, negative thoughts about them or by choosing to be absorbed by what has occurred. At the very end, we are confronted with the bitter truth that we are only harming ourselves in this procedure. The past is gone, recalling and thinking on it won’t transform it.

The easiest approach to dispose of this unconscious agony is to figure out how to look forward, ahead to what is next… not as simple as ‘letting go’… but more “moving on”.

Moving on is tied in with accepting what’s going on at this moment and not agonizing over what will has happened to get there.

Moving on is the sense of discharging all uncertainty, stress, and dread about a circumstance, individual or result.  It’s discharging whatever upsets your bliss and holding you back from progressing in your journey.

Moving on is a decision to conclude that whilst you look back as a learning exercise, it’s done, happened and gone, it’s a culmination of memories that you can no longer change… but the future, the moving on part… that’s exciting! That’s unknown… that’s an adventure not to miss.

 “Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go” (Hermann Hesse)

Think about it for a while, holding something firmly with your hands is forceful, difficult to keep up, and tiring. Same applies to everyday life.

When you have confidence that everything will turn out to be a blessing, and put your faith at the center, that is the point at which your baggage will end up lighter and you will never again need to go through your time on struggling up hill with so much weight of the past.

Remember when you were a kid running down a slope? How you could go so quick, it nearly felt like you were flying.

You didn’t consider where you would arrive at the base. You didn’t endeavor to control your speed. You just kept running energetically. What’s more is that you may fall and hurt yourself,  or perhaps land on your face, you would cry to completely healing process, the self hurt. The physical agony however you realized you would be alright and would have returned to run that slope once more.

Take yourself back there and realize that your baggage is a culmination of your memories from the time of innocence when you were not affected, to the time you have now dwelled and let memories and hurt hold you back.

Empty your unnecessary baggage loaded with things you cannot change… and fill it with excitement and adventure. Then head back for that slope and fly.
