Heard a great song by Delta Goodrem(above) titled Wings, that got me thinking about risk taking and self-control. In the song Delta asks “What if I lose my self-control and choose to let it go, these wings were made to fly” In the song I presume she is talking about a relationship, losing all self inhibitions or fears and going for it, however I would relate the song to life in general not just the romance.
Throughout life we are faced with challenges and have decisions to make, sadly these challenges can be too emotional and we lose our inhibitions and this becomes a mistake for example losing our cool with a passive aggressive boss or somebody who cuts us off in traffic. Why do we get emotional and where do these emotional frustrations come from?
In life we are all on a journey somewhere heading towards our destination, like all journeys it’s never a smooth ride and we don’t always know how long it will take, this is the reason we get frustrated. One thing for certain is that the journey will end and how it will end isn’t up to any individual, however how we react to the ending is up to us.
Wings are made to fly and a bird doesn’t go on just one journey, a bird will fly here and there, many little or big journeys and I would be inclined to say that self-control is paramount to help the bird stick to its journey. Obviously the same is with us, the wings in our soul and character help us fly to where we want to be and it is important to ask “What if I lose my self-control?” what does that mean for me and my journey.
