How to Rise Above It All

toni morrison

The best of my life has come from surrender: surrendering my doubts, my fears, my expectations, and my control. Only then, have I been able to “ride the wind.”

Complaining about, regretting, side-stepping, or resisting what is has only frustrated and thwarted my progress.

I often have dreams in which I can jump up, catch the wind, and soar weightlessly above the earth. Even in my dreams, the power eludes me when I try too hard to do it myself, instead of just delighting in the moment, creation, and the Creator who has already given the power.

We have been created to fly. Today, I’ll feel the power by letting go of what weighs me down.
