Fluttering Something"Find something you love to do and you never have to work for in your life."
I first read this quote given by Ray Bradbury on his foreword about his amazing book, Fahrenheit 451. It struck me like hitting your funny bone hard on metal and stuck to me like gum under my shoe. Years passed and Steve Jobs said the same thing.
Now faerie is no Ray Bradbury nor a Steve Jobs. In fact, I am nowhere near their calibre as it took me years to find that something, A SoMeTHiNG. Perhaps I have known it a long time, but unlike the two famous men, they simply did it... probably at the conception of its first thought. Faerie kinda dwindled, often straying, whether it's because of family, work, health, what-have-yous... we can think of sooo many excuses for simply NoT doing it. Eventually leading to years of sackful of wondering, truckloads of thinking, mountains of analyzing... and the ever famous phrase, a whackload of 'what ifs'.
They became my baggage that continued to weigh me down; and yet for the full effect of it, I continuously let it lag behind me... then feeling I am unable to move forward. I know. Duh.
I am now the butterfly who has left behind that baggage. They're not forgotten. I visit one at a time only after I am stronger with my wings to flutter about it. There really is no point in hovering above our baggage when it doesn't serve us at the moment. Faerie will only end up fluttering in circles.
I am now the butterfly who followed her path towards THe SoMeTHiNG I love to do. And with each class I guide into the practice, it's not work at all. Nuh uh *shakes faeriehead*. I simply fly and flutter with the poses.
