Let Your Wings Find Light | 1.19.21
Foggy times friends, foggy indeed. We’ve been mist wrapped for damn near a year now, and I know I am not alone when I say how desperately we all need just a spot of light shining through all that that obscures it. I know it’s coming, I know we’re looking at real hope on beating this virus, beating this pandemic, pushing it back until we’re able to truly live again, and I will continue to hope through the days it still feels miles away. I think that’s what this is about, today, that unique kernel of strength that we humans have, when I’m not sure any other species does. This ability to look forward despite a hell of a lot of negativity that’s surrounded us, and see something other than more of the same. Maybe it’s naive, maybe it’s gullible, maybe it’s crazy, but we do this, and it keeps us alive. I’ll be damned if it doesn’t keep us alive.
There is fog, for certain, but behind it all, shining like some brilliant promise through frosted windowpane, there is still light. I may be a broken record, I may even be annoying when I say it, but there is hope still, there’s always been, and sometimes we have to make it up as we go when the stores get depleted. Maybe this is the work of life, maybe it’s the reason we’re here, the true cycle that will define us. We don’t live to add money to bank accounts, we don’t live to climb career ladders, to acquire more wealth or status or material goods to the house we call home, we live to work on ourselves, to add hope to our souls like some 401k of karma and joy, we live to make those around us better, to help them add to theirs. Maybe this is it, the secret we’re after, finding hope through the fog, finding joy through those cold winter winds.
Fly through all the fog
until you rise above it.
Let your wings find light.

I needed these words today. Thank you.
Really needed this. I never get tired of all the ways in which you remind us to hold onto hope. But in a time when I am unemployed and embarking on a journey of starting my own company...I need these reminders. I need to remember that my life isn't all about money and career success and living by societal rules. It's about being fully alive in my own skin.
