Born to Fly

A song on my iPod asks the question, “How can you keep your feet on the ground when you know that you were born to fly?” Wow. I get that.

  5. Being born to fly is being an adventurer, willing to take risks and anxious to try new experiences.
  6. Being born to fly is always having a goal in front of you. And not just a “mountain peak” goal, but an “over the top of the peak” goal.
  7. Being born to fly is dreaming big, loud, and in bright colors.
  8. Being born to fly is allowing set-backs and obstacles to frustrate you only for a short time and then pushing ahead with whatever level of determination is necessary.
