FINDING PEACE IS NEVER ABOUT SEARCHING FOR IT, IT IS ALWAYS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. YOU JUST NEED TO SEE IT."
For the past few weeks there has been a pressing thought on my mind regarding where I find peace. Many people spend years and years searching for it, and it only took me one day to find it. Years and years always travel through my mind before it takes me back to a moment when I was just a little younger. When I was about 13 I found solace in something that I never thought could bring much joy. I would love to run through the whole story, but for now I will just skim over it briefly.
Being able to be so close to heaven is something that I take so much pride in. I have long loved to feel as close to God as possible. Nature is sufficient enough, but there is something so deep and longing about being up in the sky. During my flight training, I have come to the conclusion that the best cruising altitude is 10,500 feet. No, that is not because of airplane performance, it is because that is where I can see the most of the world. I can see where I live -where I share a home with all of you.
That feeling is buried deep within my bones, veins, and cells. I could never get over that peace that I feel when I take the controls of that plane and get so close to heaven. I know without a doubt that heaven is so close to us, and I have felt it myself. There is the feeling of solace, of hope, and even of love. I truly appreciate my experiences here on earth and in the sky. Life is purely beautiful.
I have explained my story a thousand times regarding my solo flights that I have been able to take. For one thing, did I really feel alone? In all honesty, there was no anxiety, worry, or fear the entire time. I never felt like my instructor was missing -my real instructor -God- was right there the whole time. I certainly did not have the typical solo experiences during my 10 hours of solo time for private pilot. Never once did I even doubt what I was doing, as it all came so naturally.
Flying alone has taught myself that I am better than I think. I really can do things that I never thought I could do. There is no way that I doubt myself anymore due to these amazing experiences I had. No one is ever alone, and I will hit on that subject so many times until the world gets sick and tired of it. My mind wanders on these thoughts on a daily, so yes, this is an important subject to me.
My burning passion has turned into something that has saved my life, my doubt, and my sanity. I have been able to see myself in a new way that is aesthetically pleasing. My confidence is at an all time high, and my self love is even higher. I am so proud of myself, my life decisions, and where I am. Without God, my family, friends, and followers I would not be where I am today.
Anything is possible with faith, determination, and effort. Don't you think that matter is amazing? Yes, I know I do! These blog posts are meant for me to share my life experiences while teaching you too. All of this means so much to me, and thank you indeed for supporting my journey. Every view, like, and read means so much to me. I really want this to take off and make an impact on millions of people. I am proof that anyone can do anything despite the challenges that life brings on. Change is possible, but only if you make the choice to take the chance to change.
Maybe it's one breath at a time, one heartbeat at a time, and even one smile at a time, we all got this. It is time that the world understands that flying is freedom and freedom is flight.
