A to Z Challenge 2022 – Nature and I
Don’t you think many of us restrict or limit our growth by boundaries we set for ourselves? Man is blessed with boundless potential. Yet the fear of failure, self-imposed barriers and doubts curtail his growth. Snug and cozy in his self-created comfort zone, hesitation greets his step outside of it. The mind holds on to the “what ifs” before giving it a try.
When I see the birds fly across the blue skies, it reinforces my belief that that we too are blessed with abilities in abundance. When the fledglings are ready, the mother pushes them out of their nest. The little ones instinctively flap their wings and fly into the sky, overcoming fear, slowly but steadily gaining confidence, before soaring into the vast open sky.
“There is freedom waiting for you on the breeze of the sky, and you ask, “What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” Erin Hanson
The flying birds are a good reminder for me to let go my apprehensions and dare myself to take my feet off the ground.
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t, is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” J. M. Barrie

the flight to freedom
All I need to do is, shrug off the self-doubts infringing into my mind. Soaring into the limitless expanse is a dream which I can realize, if I believe in it.
Like Rumi rightly said, “You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through?”
