This magnificent Condor had been kept in a care facility for 6 months and this was its release to the wild skies above.
Standing in front of the crowd, the moment you’ve been waiting for for so long, you aren’t really sure if it is real or not.
You stretch your wings, you move and pose, just like you’ve always done, just like the crowd likes, not even aware that you have been in a prison that has slowly over time dampened your spirit and dimmed your soul.
Slowly you realise that you can move and shake it up a little, and boy does that feel good!
But you’re still scared, you have lost confidence.
All the doubts come crawling in.
Can I do this?
What if I fall?
What if I look stupid?
And the view below shows all the dark shadows that mirror the voices in your mind.
And still the crowd watches to see whether you would dare to fly, and if you were so courageous, would you crash and burn.
But what if you had the support of a community that holds you to your vision and urges you to continue to “practice” until you regain your confidence?
And so you go through the motions of takeoff, preparing and bolstering yourself to take the leap.
No matter how long it takes, you are committed to fly.
And your community assures you that freedom is near and worth it, and encouragingly cheer you on
“You’ve got this!!”
And the moment comes,
you muster your courage …
And you take flight.
And it feels so great,
It feels so awesome!!
You are free!!
And yet even though you’ve had a good run, somehow you still find yourself at the bottom of the valley, shaking your head as you sit on the rock you just hit.
And you look at the point where you started and wonder was it really all worth it?
Is that all it’s meant to be?
But as you look up at the crowd you get to see who was really on your team – some have left, some are still caught in the drama of what you’re going to do next, some are throwing negativity and jeering at you, and others are cheering for you, trying to remind you of what’s in your heart.
“But what if I fail? What if I fall?”
And the crowd that are in your true heart community shout to you
“Look UP!!! What If You Fly??!!!”
And as you look up you see the others that have been flying in the thermals and are enjoying the good life, a life of ease, flow and grace,
It’s almost as if they are inviting you to join them!!
Showing you that it’s possible to have the life you have been striving for since you first began this journey.
No, the FreedomPreneur journey is not for the feint of heart, but if you ask any one of us who are still on the path if it is worth it, if the freedom outweighs the fear, you will always hear them call “Abso-freaking-lutely”!!!
And so you take to the skies again with a fire in your heart that has now been set free.
Is this you?
Are you a FreedomPreneur at heart?
Comment FREEDOM to let me know who else is in MY true heart community!!
Until Next Time …
Love, J. xxOOxx
