Am I Ready To Fly

Fly to be free
Don't fly to get away from the past
Fly to explore the future

I am blessed because I have people in my life who believe in me. When times are tough, these people always remind me about the good qualities I have, apparently I have a few;), especially when I have a difficult time seeing them myself.

I have Cindy, we've been great friends for about 23 years (I think!).  She cheers me on even though she does not agree with me often.  I know I drive her crazy with some of my decisions but she does support me in the better ones.

Of course I have my daughter Andrea who is always quick to point out things I can change which is fine, she loves me.  Even though I have driven her a little crazy over the years.  We grew up together and she turned out wonderful despite my of lack of conformity.

Also I have my David, although things are not as easy for us right now as they have been in the past, what relationship is?   I know that I can always count on him to be there for me and I will always be there for him too. Life is busy for both of us, heck life is busy for everyone.  I think we all need to simplify.

Lately I have been feeling like I have to push myself outside my comfort zone, I always like being comfortable at ease, I can't stand to feel that I am out of control.  When I am out of control, I am terrified... that is supposed to be good right?  I have written how change can be awesome but when it comes right down to it, I didn't want to change... I just wanted everything handed to me because I am a good person.  Now I see that is not enough, I have to stretch outside my comfort zone and prove to myself that I can do it.

This is only the start, I have a huge change that is coming but I am really looking forward to the outcome.  The outcome will be amazing and exactly everything I have worked and hoped for all my life. I saw something today that showed me that it is okay if I am the only one to believe in something, I can know the truth when no one else believes, I have to believe in myself.

  1. Wow! 23 years of friendship!! Both you and Cindy are awesome to make this work for so long.
    It's hard to leave the comfort zone behind, I too hate that, I am a control freak :)


    1. Yes Petro, 23 years... Cindy has survived

      It is hard to get outside our comfort zone, hence it is not the least bit comfortable.

      It's rewarding though, at least it has been

  2. A real friend will stick by you no matter what!!!! Cindy sounds wonderful. I thought I was into change, but also found myself doing things that felt comfortable and I thought it was change. LOL!!! Funny how denial works. We're all doing the best that we can!!! Great post!!!
    PS: Are you going to phone your MLA???? I forgot to mention, I'm a bit of a nag, so except to hear from me. tee hee
