What can YOU say in six sentences?
In my youth I tried to fly beyond the square, away from the box of my upbringing that had me contained, conditioned and internally criticized. Determined to be nothing like my parents,I formed circles of friends that hovered over me flickering their wings of freedom showing me the ways of swirling exploration.
Now half way through my life I fly back to the box, jump inside and say to my younger self; It's OK, you are worthwhile and the box is only where you came from, it does not determine where you will go.
I begin to trust myself and my heart becomes increasingly full. Like Alice in Wonderland, I instantly out grow the box with my feet breaking through the bottom until I almost wear my past around my body like armor or a strapless mini dress of cardboard.
