Wings of Freedom

wing-2268

 

I think I’ve taken my freedom for grated.  I think we all do that at some point in our lifetime.  On the grander scale, such as our nation freedom I cherish everyday and try to remind myself to give thanks for it, but it’s the smaller freedoms I tend to forget and don’t hold as closely to my heart.  I guess that saying “you don’t know what you have until its gone…” this could mean many things to many people, but for me I didn’t realize how much I depended on something in my everyday life and how much freedom it gave me.  It’s never nice to feel stuck and dependent on others to help me, but I am thankful for my family and friends who love me unconditionally and still stick by me when I am and have been a total brainless twit.  I can only hope that my wings will spread themselves again and I can regain the freedom I so desire and will never take for granted.  And for those who are helping me through my time of struggles and many repeated act of blindness, thank you, your love and kindness are something I don’t take for granted and hope I can repay ten-fold.  My wings may have been clipped, but I know that with time and perseverance they will return and I will soar again.

30 Day Gratitude Challenge Post #27

Learning something new…I’ve been fighting with myself because I’ve been struggling with a new job and learning its process, but today I gave in and stopped struggling-ok maybe only for a moment.  It seems like I have way too many struggles, in way too many areas in my life.  Maybe no more or less than anyone else, but it still blocks the good energy I seek and the balance I long for-but I refuse to give in and give up the fight.  I guess you can say that the fight can be both good and bad, the yin and the yang…so Today I’m grateful for my fighting spirit.  I guess the Irish is coming out and showing her GREEN!
