If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.

If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.

No, this doesn’t mean, taking off overcoats or heavy shoes etc! This is all about letting go of all the restrictions or self-doubts we tend to take on board in life and freeing ourselves. We tend to add “weights” to ourselves in the form of low self-belief, self-esteem or self-confidence. Perhaps even allowing other people to burden us with their unhelpful perceptions of us. Now, how are we going to spread our wings and “fly” with all that weighing us down? We’re not, are we so, like the sand bags in the basket of our hot air balloon, hoist them over the side and watch them disappear, hopefully missing the people below! Now our spirits have the freedom to find and bring us what we wish for most.
