“You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.” – Rumi

I’ve found myself growing in my fascination for the words of Rumi, a 13th century poet and mystic. Above is one of the many amazing things he said. You know this already. You and I, we both do… but there is no harm in reminding ourselves. We forget ever too often. We lose sight of our own greatness. The words of Marianne Williamson speak to My Deepest Fear, as well as yours, that It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Maybe it’s time to start embracing our fears. By so doing, we learn to use our wings and fly to the land of our dreams.
