We could have the sky.

"Come to the edge, he said.
They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, he said.
They came.
He pushed them,
And they flew..."

- Guillaume Apollinaire-

We all need a push. A whisper, or in some cases, a shout. An "It's time!" A "Go!", "Run!", "Keep moving forward because this isn’t it and because you were made for more". I think we all know it deep down too, but left to our own accord we choose safety over risk. We willingly choose the ground when we could have the sky. We doubt and question and write it off and wait it out and save it for another day. But now is a better time than any to fly. Sure, at first flight it may feel like you're free falling, but give it a second to get acquainted with your new wings and before long you'll be soaring. And even if things don't go exactly as planned, at least you'll never have to wonder what it would feel like to fly.
