Why am I saying this? I was looking at some beautiful roses 2 dear friends gave to me. When they brought them over they were closed - but still beautiful. After a few days they really opened up and that is when their true beauty shined. I challenge you to do what I did. Go outside. Stand with you feet steady and shoulder width apart. Open your arms wide with your palms facing up. Lift your eyes to the sky. Take a deep breath in and lift your heart. Feel how open you can be. Free your mind of the "no's" and "I can'ts". The "wont's" and "I shouldn'ts".
When we prepare ourselves for a fall - we don't have room to fly. When we are closed up all we can see is ourselves - we can't see the extraordinary all around us.
