Blessings Are Found Inside with Wings to Fly

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

SplashAt this time of year many look only to their material accomplishments as blessings but I would contend that some of your most valuable blessings are found within.

The word affluence comes from a meaning of abundant flow. Your prosperity does not come from the things you have but from the consciousness that attracts things. It is an inner blessing.

Likewise your security is not about things either. Secure comes from a meaning about without care. Security comes from an affluent mindset which frees you from anxiety.


What we really need in all our challenges in our lives are "wings."

Take note from Victor Hugo:

"Be like the bird
 That pausing in her flight
 While on boughs too slight,
 Feels them give way
 Beneath her, and yet sings,
 Knowing she hath wings."

Feeling "without care", trusting in God, trusting in your abilities, trusting in the resources your inner mind knows of, trusting in friends you have found, is truly a blessing inside and will help you fly. Work towards this in your life. Always believe you have "wings."

Hi Gary,

I just got back from a relaxing weekend in Dallas with my family and I was thinking about your inspirations.   You keep us inspired all year long so today is just like every other day. 

PS.  I now want to head to the beach!  It's cold here in North Carolina.

Suzanne: With Active Rain and their hijinks all the grasshoppers around here have to be fast.

Greg: It is a cool photo. Implying the flying and all.

Tracy: If you would have had time you should have looked me up here. I would have loved to have met you. We're still pretty warm here 50's and 60's. I hope no one steals any more of your material.

Gary - Feeling "without care" - being care free! Everybody should go into this mode from time to time. It feels wonderful! TO get there we must establish that there are many things in life that are beyond our control...and then just trust in God.

Gary, That picture is stunning.  I know I have wings but find some days they're out for repair :)  Which is fine, those are the "slow down" days.

Always need to keep "extremely caring tank" full of positive energy so "Healing Gary"  doesn't get burnout. Not good for YOU. I see another reader very happy to get "prized top spot" on amazing inspirational person's blog" They must have Google alerts telling them "amazing inspiration" coming head to TEXAS quick.

"some of your most valuable blessings are found within"(Just needed caring friend to help discover them)then blossom, grow and fly like eagle. (S.lee.p thanks caring friend so much.) 

"trusting in friends you have found, is truly a blessing inside and will help you fly"(Like this sentence best.)

Helps you to Always believe you have "wings."  (bless you)Broken wings starting to mend.

Gary- The photo in this post is mesmerizing and so perfectly captures the essence of your story. Wings are there for us if only we stop long enough to feel them.

Carol: A little down time this week helps us with that care free time. Yes, out of control leave to the hands of God.

Carole: Did you pick your wings back up today from the dry cleaners? : ) We need you Carole flying around over all of us hooligans.

Mirela: Victor Hugo was a good one.

s.lee.p: Yes, sometimes wings are broken, and you are right they need to be healed. A little TLC to others goes a long way. I think you are the one with the wisdom.

Martha: Wings are there for us if we know that. Absolutely true.

Hi Laura: Those wings are back there, just feel around and they will pop out : )

Hi Pat: Good to see you again. Glad you feel calm and not wild. I like calm. Rest can rejuvenate you and let you fly better than before. Loved that Wings of a Dove video. Enjoy your Thanksgiving. You do have a light Pat. A bright one.

You are always such an inspiration.  Thank you.  Especially this year, I think, everyone around has been focusing too much on material things (or on their lack).  After all, we are all "spiritual beings having a human experience" (Deepak Chopra).

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Marzena: Our spirit side definitely knows about the wings. Our human side needs to be better aware of it. Happy Thanksgiving to YOU Marzena!!!

Hey Susan: That was YOU on the FFV? New readers will have to search your old blogs for that acronym. But I know. Happy Thanksgiving to all the Mangigians running around your table and guests. If I were nearby I would knock on your door to be one of your "strays." LOL.

Betina: We all have wings. Just have to raise them up and fly.

When you step back out of the way and give up trying to control everything and just beleive, only then can you fly.
