I wrote this in an old journal, to try to explain this deep link with the notion of flying that I have.
Each time the song is talking about flying, freedom, moving out of old
patterns, not being limited, not being afraid.
Now the question is, how do I soar? I feel like I've been standing on the edge of things for so long, almost flying, but not quite getting there. How do I move forward from here?
I found another entry later on that commented on this:
Sometime in the last few days, I think I've come up with an answer to the question posed last week in this journal ("Soar"). I think 'flying' is choosing to not be limited by my own perceived inadequacies - to take up challenges as they present themselves and just 'be' without stressing all the time. For the first time in a long time, I'm really enjoying being me. In fact, I don't think I would change places with anyone at the moment (not even a younger prettier me). I know I still have to deal with the aftereffects of some of the things I've been through, but I feel really relaxed about it, like everything is just going to happen if I stay calm and just 'be'. (Sorry to sound new-age-ish, but I don't know any other way to explain it.)
