The Bird Can Fly

You are capable of amazing things, and that inherent talent exists regardless of changes in your external environment.

“The bird does not trust in the branch for its safety. The branch may break; the bird can fly.”

Often, we make the mistake of thinking our talents are tied to our circumstances. That we can only be who we are if we’re where we are. That isn’t the case – you are you. On a boat, with a goat, in a car, near or far.

Other people may change your circumstances, even if you don’t want them to. They can’t ever change what you know how to do.

If you built a house from scratch, pouring your blood, sweat and tears into it, the house itself is a nice reward. However, even in the worst of circumstances – a fire or a hurricane destroys that house – those circumstances can’t take everything away from you.

You still learned how to build a house, and can build another. Keep flying.
