Some of us are the wind. We blow the air that creates beautiful music or perhaps we are the breath of life the kite rises against and soars in response.
Others are kites or wind chimes. They gracefully twist and turn in the breeze, a delight to the eye. Or perhaps the melody they radiate soothes the souls of others. Their beauty and talent seems effortless. How often do we realize those kites and chimes don’t function on their own? They are flawlessly designed to do what is intended. Guides and stabilizers assist them.
When we breezy types don’t feel appreciated for our efforts we long to be carefree like we assume the kites or wind chimes to be. Do the kites and wind chimes get tired of the attention? Maybe they’d like a respite from the role in which they feel no escape.
If you think about it most of us are a mixture of all. We blow warm and cool. There are days we are a welcomed breeze and times we are a gust too much. Other times we are the ones being watched as we provide the entertainment and joy.
Though we are each works in progress, we are flawlessly designed. It takes time, effort, and practice to get where we are going whether it’s sailing the sky, assisting from the ground, or quietly blending into the background. We are created for a purpose whether we are aware or not. When we do what we feel we need to do, whether for ourselves or others, it makes all the difference in the world.
Whether you are the wings, the wind beneath them, or both know you are beautiful and loved. Breathe. Soar in your own way. Be you.
This is one of those two am insomniac thoughts that sounded profound until it hit the light of day and the keyboard…I think it lost much in translation, but still felt the need to share.
