Anyone, everyone, has these thoughts – but do we let them out?
Should we let them out?
Is it a social norm, or a strict upbringing, that determines if we keep it, or let it out?
If we let it out, do we whisper it to a friend or keep it in some confessional, or shout from roof tops, mountain tops? Or just speak softly, first thing in the morning – to that person in the mirror? Where do your thoughts live? Do you keep them inside, or let them out into the world?
If I find the dotted-line begging me to cross. Do I step over, step out, speak out?
Are we locking up our fears, or our future, our dreams, or our nightmares?
In the light of day, in the clearness of air – all we are is who we are. Unless, we lock our reality inside – and then we must ask, what is it we doing in the world – truth or fantasy? Worth and value, or hidden from view, afraid to stand and let our ideas/feelings and thoughts stand in the sunshine …
None of this keeps us from the reality we cannot always have what we desire. But if we haven’t tried, what is the point of living a life we might dare to call FULL?
Will this jolt us into new possibilities – can we change a crisis into an opportunity, a dream into a reality – or, just get through our day more easily.
We are all superstars. Why be shackled when freedom of thought will set us free. Free for all. Free for life. Admission is free. Enjoy the ride.
