Try something new today

IMG_3975‘I am scared,’ she said clinging to hard cold rocks

‘I don’t want to fall. I don’t want to fall.’

‘How did you make it up here then?’

‘I don’t know. I just climbed up.

With my eyes closed. Pulling that behind,’

she pointed with her head at a large gray boulder.

‘Oh,’

‘Exactly. And now I am stuck up here.’

‘Come on,’ the angel said taking her by the hand.

They looked at the clouds below covering the soft green land.

‘No, no, no. I don’t want to fall.’

‘You don’t have to.’

‘But there is no way out.’

‘What if… you could fly.’

‘Impossible!’

‘Let go,’ the angel whispered.

‘Surrender,’ the angel coaxed.

‘Listen to your heart.’

She eased into the cold air.

First breathless with excitement.

Ice forming on her face from the altitude.

Then fear disappeared

She finally surrendered

Until she floated softly like a feather.

 

Often we think we are stuck

Whilst there is another way

If we are willing to risk it.

If we are brave enough to see it.

Because that angel is always by our side

Ready to hold us while we fly…

    • Thank you for reading and for such warm feedback, Gwynn. Yes, the art of trusting and letting go… I need to repeat it all the time for it to sink in and become my second nature.
