This past weekend I had the privilege to fly on a single engine Cessna airplane. We took off from a suburban airport and then flew around downtown Chicago. I love the freedom of being in the air. When you are in the thick of Chicago on the ground it seems so big. The buildings tower over you and everything seems larger than life. Flying above the city gives you a new perspective. Everything appears smaller yet there is a vastness in the overall view.
It made me think about looking at our everyday life from a new perspective. Whatever you find yourself going through today, step back and look at your circumstances from a new perspective. Look from a 1,000’ view and see how small your problems really are. From a 1,000’ you see the light at the end of the tunnel. From high above, you can see the sun through the cloud cover. You can see many paths to choose from to get to your destination. You can also see destinations you didn’t even know existed from your previous perspective. So fly above your current situations and allow yourself to soar higher and higher.
This Week’s Affirmation: I fly high with infinite love and possibilities as I am in control of my journey.

For the next week I invite you to fly high by:
Appreciate where you currently are; appreciate your yesterdays as it brought you to today. Enjoy your today as from a space of joy your tomorrow’s will be better.
Loving your journey, even any turbulence (contrast) you go through as it too is part of the journey simply there to remind you to adjust your flight pattern towards your dreams and desires.
Listen to the control tower (your intuition) as when you pay close attention, you will be alerted to the best flight pattern for your personal journey.
Mostly, I invite you to know where you want to go and enjoy every moment of the journey. When you are living in happiness, happiness finds you. When you are living in love, love finds you. When you are living in abundance, abundance finds you.
Until next time, fasten your seat belts, we will be cruising at an altitude that I refer to as heaven.
