Of course, I do not have giant wings and cannot cruise through the sky like an eagle or Superwoman. But, I do have courage, determination, and perseverance. Add those to my skill set, faith in God to order my steps, and the intestinal fortitude to try, I am confident that if I take steps in the right direction, I will end up farther than I started. Action starts with vision and continues with steps. Idleness is not my style. Besides, “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” We all need to be pushed; to be motivated and encouraged. Sometimes, others who believe in us lead the charge; other times, we have to charge our own battery. Regardless of where our stimulants originate, “nothing works unless we do.” I am known from time to time to steal meaningful lyrics, so I borrowed a few from R. Kelly’s, “I believe I can fly!” Words can motivate us. Hopefully, these words will stimulate you and me from inaction to mobility.
“I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms
If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it
I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me
If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it
Hey, cause I believe in me.”
Let’s get started!
