Finding Your Swan
Ever have the feeling that everyone’s going “QUACK” when you’re going “HONK?”
Do you sometimes find yourself saying ~ “I’m not like the rest - I’m different?”
Feeling out of place?
Like the Ugly Duckling ~ we don’t always recognize our own strength or beauty. We focus more on ~ “If Only…”
In time, our mind’s eye will adjust to these dark feelings and we’ll begin to see our surroundings in a new light ~
We’ll recognize the real enemy ~ Fear
Then, like the duckling, our dreams will come true ~
Our Swan will appear!
As a child, growing old was something I dreaded. I never thought I'd become one of those 'white-haired' women with saggy skin -- but alas, age caught up and grabbed hold of me. Yep, I have white hair and my body is starting to sag. :))) Now when I walk by young children I often wonder if they're thinking the same thing.
Well, tomorrow I'm celebrating another birthday and I feel great! I'm alive, I'm happy, and I feel good about myself. No fear here just contentment. The sun will come out tomorrow and I'll be greeting it with a big smile! Woooweeeeee! Isn't life wonderful? You bet'cha it is!
I've finally found my swan even if I do look like an old pigeon. :)
“I never dreamed of such happiness as this, while I was an ugly duckling.”
~ Hans Christian Andersen
I hope all your tomorrows are filled with sunshine and laughter!
