“Be like the bird that, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings.” ~ Victor Hugo
In today’s mindful moment, I ask you to consider the analogy of the bird, the nest, and the vast sky above.
In what ways do you stay comfortable in your nest? Your nest is cozy, comfortable and predictable. Your nest keeps you safe and secure. Your nest is a good thing, most of the time.
But what I’m really interested in is how you take flight. Like the fledgling bird, jumping out of the nest to spread her wings, how do you leave the safety of your nest for the greater freedom of flying high.
I use this analogy often, for it’s a metaphor for my life. As I continue to jump out of my comfortable nest, the world opens before me. Perhaps I learned this skill out of necessity, but I believe it’s one of my superpowers, and is something that I teach my clients to have the confidence to experience.
Unless you can jump out of the safety of the nest, you won’t be able to experience all that this marvelous world has to offer. I’m confident that if you jump, your wings will open and you will soar.
Now, after reading this, I invite you to do one thing this week that pushes you beyond your comfort zone! Spread your wings and fly!
Thanks for reading this mindful moment. I hope you got something of value from it. I always welcome your thoughts or comments, so don’t hold back.
Infinite Love, Lyn
