Learning to Fly – Doctor Ordered

Life is Messy How do you view your past? Is it something you rejoice in or something you ignore? Did your past happen to you or is your past a part of you? Do you let it guide you or let it rule you? Do you accept that all the bits and pieces that make up your past coalesce to make up you?  “What happens to each of us is ordered. It furthers our destiny. … There is a single harmony.

To top it off, the rewards of nurturing your nature include confidence and contentment! “If an action or utterance is appropriate, then it’s appropriate for you. Don’t be put off by other people’s comments and criticism. … The others obey their own lead, follow their own impulses. Don’t be distracted. Keep walking. Follow your own nature and follow Nature – along the road they share.” We all too often ignore our own selves and proceed based on other people’s realities. There will always be someone telling us we should things their way,…
