In Need of Wings - New Pendants

If ever there was a week when I needed to be held along by the wings of angels, it is this week.

Tasks will be completed that seem nearly impossible.  Grace and hope will be my guides.

"Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings." -Victor Hugo
  
"Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall." -Ray Bradbury

Do you know how I get through Herculean tasks? I picture them done.  I picture the end result and me enjoying it.  I picture what I want and then the work of getting there isn't quite so daunting. 

So if you are in the middle of something overwhelming this week - know it's temporary - and during the hard times tell yourself, "This too shall pass." 

And if you are faced between fears and chasing after your dreams - jump and see your wings spread out as your dreams take flight.

Beautiful pieces! I love the quotes you attached with them. Wishing you peace in your day as your over come your hurdles!

I like this one by Ray Bradbury "Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down."
