Free Bird

Posted on February 18, 2016

You have escaped the cage. Your wings are stretched out. Now, fly.

~Rumi

 

I had been feeling caged. So very caged for quite some time. But no more. This year, year 40 of my life, marks the the beginning of a new journey. Inward, upward and outward. I won’t be stopped.

I woke up this morning and realized that I had the key to my cage this entire time. Not only that, but I was also the one who put myself in it and the one who locked the door.

Supposedly I have reached the middle of my life. It has, in some ways, been an upward climb, but with such lovely views along the way. I can’t think of anything I would actually change.

Now that I am at the top I plan to leap, wings outstretched, and soar all the way back down. Slowly, luxuriously, deliberately.

I’m free.
