Discover Yourself – What would you do if you had wings?

Well, it’s been a long, long time since I began the idea of Discover Yourself and I did it only for a few weeks and then got caught up in other things (read procrastinated).  With the beginning of the new year, I am starting it up again.  If you’d like to learn more about it and have a badge to put on your blog, here’s the first post.

On Monday’s I will post a  new question that will hopefully help me gain some new discovery of myself.  Anyone is invited to share along if they wish.

This week’s question,
What would you do if you had wings?

When I first saw this question, I loved it.  Just the idea of being able to soar about in the sky like birds do.  Wouldn’t that be just one of the coolest things every???

I think about the movie, Michael, with John Travolta–not the fact that he was so messy, but how the wings looked and moved about on their own, as if they had an itch or a twitch.  Also, the TV show Saving Grace, which is, unfortunately, no longer on TV–Earl the angel was pretty cool with how his wings lifted up and the light shown down on him when he was ready to take flight.

If I had wings, I’d be able to fly to work, it would take me much less time than driving–although I’m only a 5 minute drive from home right now–but there’s still stop signs with traffice held up and some days I would love to be able to fly right over it.  Patience, while driving, is not one of my strong suits.  I love to drive, but on the highway is the best.  But, if I had wings, I could fly out into the country to visit my mother or my cousin or other scenery around me in the Province I live in.  I might even be able to fly to Cape Breton and see it again.

I have a quote on my desk that is about spreading our W.I.N.G.S and I think it’s appropriate here…

All success begins with spreading your W.I.N.G.S.
–believing in your worth,
trusting your insight,
nurturing yourself,
having goals,
and devising your
personal strategy.
– Unknown

I like this quote too…

Compared to the age of the Universe,
you are new to Nature.
No one can really predict to
what heights you might soar.
Even you will not know until
you spread your wings.
– Gil Atkinson

  1. >If I had wings I would totally fly to work and the grocery store. I might fly for exercies, too but doubtful. It would really come in handy when I am running late.
