We All Have Wings......

The beautiful Miss Chelsea, flexing her wings across the stage

I love the INXS song Never tear us apart - there is a line in that song that I have always related to;

'Cause we all have wings, but some of us don't know why'

For a long time I didn't know what my wings looked like, but I am happy to say that I have found them and they are stretched often.

Finding my wings at Lago Di Garda
For me finding my wings only came about when I started making conscious decisions to change my current situation and to create my own happiness. I focused on making positive changes in my life and I have to say I was flooded with rebounding positive energy!

As my changes started to unfold my personal and professional life grew beyond expectation. These changes were coming to me, I was not consciously seeking them out. I absolutely believe if you make positive changes in your life, if they are coming from your heart and you are being true to yourself, then positive activity will find you like a magnet.

My beautiful Annaliese about to fly.... I love these kind of wings..tutu's and ballet shoes

As a parent you would like to share some of your worldly knowledge with your children. I would hate to think that the lessons I have learned throughout life will not be, at the very least, shared with my children. They have to experience life (with all it's ups and downs) for themselves, but you would like to think that part of your ride could be shared and you could have some valuable advice that will help steer them through this world.

My littlest girls are yet to find their wings
I want my children to find their wings early in life, that may or may not happen but I am going to try and help them with that. Their wings may not be what I would choose, and as parents we have to be careful not to impose our own wants, needs or unfulfilled desires onto our children. Their journey may not fit my bill, but it is theirs and we should recognise what it is that makes them fly.........

Twirling, dancing, running.....


  1. you know... I must have heard that song thousands of times... I never picked up on that lyric. A fantastic line by such a talented yet troubled man. Lovely thoughts and words Lise... I hope positive changes keep happening and your wings remain stretched & lift you high. Most times in life you have to create what you want to be a part of ;-)

  2. Thanks Michael. Yes, you do indeed need to create what you want to be a part of in this life x
