This question can be applied to different areas of life, but let’s apply it to that brave thing you are thinking about doing. If you could answer this question, would it give you more clarity and confidence?
They each develop fluffy, irresistible heads that shatter into a thousand parachutes and waltz off into the wind. Perfectly suited for sailing on the breeze, they twist and swing until they reach earth again.
Predictably, not all of the fluffs land on dirt. Some get caught on screen doors, others land on wooden decks, get tangled in little girls’ ponytails, and crushed into pavement. But every fluff flies. None refuse for fear their flight might not be successful.
Surely there is a lesson here. How we could be fluffs, ready and willing to sail the breezes of our lives?
Remembering our words and thoughts spread. Our ideas give hope and courage. Our uniqueness gives perspective.
Some of our ideas might not work. They might land in water glasses, or birds nests, but sailing is still worth it. Waltzing in the wind gives us the wild courageous look we are all attracted to. We love the ones who are willing to fly. Why not be sailors ourselves?
What do you have inside you that needs to shatter and parachute on the breeze?
What can you offer that gives us hope and encouragement? Do you have knowledge, passion, or empathy?
