Taught to fly by little angels

Sometimes you can just feel alone. Standing quietly in the line of life waiting. Just waiting. Waiting then turns to impatience. Impatience to frustration. Frustration to anger, then anger ricochets into a million tiny pieces of self pity which can pool quietly in some corner of your soul, and manifest itself in ways so intricately woven into your every day that you cease to recognize the person you are and dislike spending time with the person you are becoming. Over six years passes and on one of the most important days of your life, because of a text message and the cumulative weight of other small happenings, you truly remember that you’ve been surrounded by compassion and love all long, and that you’ve never been all alone at all.

It has been said that “when you come to the edge of all the light you have, and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of two things will happen to you: either there will be something solid for you to stand on, or, you will be taught how to fly.” ..perhaps by little angels.
