freedom...A reflection

spreading my wings...
gently moving to
freedom...
past the bars of my
own making.

Today, I am aware of freedom...of releasing myself from the cage I sometimes lock myself in...
Today, I am aware of freedom...of opening my wings knowing I can fly into an open sky of dreams...
Today, I am aware of freedom...freedom from the bars I place around myself...my heart...my creativity...my love
Today, I am aware of freedom...the freedom to fly into the unknown with grace...with understanding that the door to this cage has always been open, I just did not see that...
Today, I am aware of freedom...I spread my wings...moving gently...feeling free.

As I reflect on this week I am aware that I have been searching and answering questions for myself as I sat on the cusp of the eye of the storm...I am aware that I have been taking control of my personal power...seeing things from a different perspective...owning that which belongs only to ME...and knowing fully that all my paths have led me here...here to where at this moment I fly past the bars of the cage of my own making...
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

PS: What can you do today, to fly with freedom from the cage of your own making?

OH...so beautiful Pattie; it resonates with me..and reminds me of Maya Angelou's book title "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" - I've contemplated that off and on for years; somehow this post sheds some light on that for me. Thank you for sharing the heart of your journey.

I really needed to read this today Pattie...I have been feeling quite caged in of late. You are right, there is a door...I'm having a hard time locating it at the moment...faith that it is here, right here, right now might just be what I need to slide my hand around these bars and find the opening.
