Taking Flight

     There has been so many times where I've looked out to the distance and could see how bright my future could be if only I let go of negativity. I'm only human. I get jealous, upset, and over emotional about things all the time. As much as I try to throw those feelings on the back burner... it's hard to ignore them completely. I want to live my life to the fullest instead of letting negativity get me down. Face it, we're not meant to get along with everyone. It's not at all possible. In fact, it's down right exhausting to try and get along with everyone. Being a people pleaser is one of the most frustrating and annoying things a person can do to themselves.

     As selfish as this sounds, I've rid a lot of people out of my life that I found weren't doing anything for me. What I mean by that is... if they're not in my life to help me reach my goals or at least support my goals, then they're not worth being in my life at all. I don't need people pretending to be my friends or people using me. I don't need pity or company by someone that have no good intentions for me. I want to surround myself with people that will uplift me and help me succeed in life. No one can do it on their own. I learned that the hard way. I used to take pride in teaching myself things or doing something on my own. While I'm still mostly that way, I've also learned to let other in to help me and stop being so stubborn about things.

     That's what this image is all about for me. My feet are still on the ground because a part of me does not want to let go of old feelings, but my wings are spread wide because I'm ready to move on and be happy, to let go of negative people and influences, and to stop worrying so much about what other people are doing or saying. This image is very conflicting for me because I'm almost in a limbo state of mind. My wings are open, so shouldn't I be flying? What's really holding me back?

     Now I know... the only thing holding me back is myself.
