“You too can fly.
But the cocoon must go!”
I was fifty before I felt like I was ready to leave the cocoon. It wasn’t an easy transition. But I wanted to fly before it was too late. I guess some doubt that I ever was trapped in my cocoon while others probably wonder if I ever will leave it. But then there are few who really know me. Or maybe it is better said that not many people know the real me. In fact, I am not sure I know the real me! I am still a work in progress and progress these days is slower…the age thing you know.
I have to admit I am more likely to flit about rather than zoom anywhere. But that’s okay, I am who and what I am; a woman free to fly if and when I want in any way I choose. Yes, I have left the cocoon and can fly. \O/ However, I still feel a bit naked without it.

I loved this. We all have our cocoon to be in at will. Another one you’ve hit out of the park. 🙂
I would be miserable if I didn’t have my cocoon to wrap up in when I need it and often when I don’t really need it but just want to be there. I think it keeps me sane.
Of course. Where would we be without our comfy corner where it’s warm and safe, and there are cats to warm our feet…if we’re lucky.
Fellow Fifty+ and Flying, it’s scary but what a ride!
It beats hitting the brakes for the last time.
We like our comfort zones and don’t like to leave them. We fear the unknown and most of the time the unknown turns out to be wonderful. Fly freely wherever you want to go.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a purrfect Awww Monday and week. ♥
You are so right the unknown is usually if not wonderful quite nice. FYI, it seems the link at Awww Monday that I shared is not working…I don’t know how to fix it. 😦
I replaced it and it’s working just fine now. I’ve no idea what happened. Looks like the same one you put in. 🙂
Thanks for fixing it!
It’s hard to fly from one’s comfort zone since it’s always so comfy. I’m never as happy as when the day is through and I’m nestled in my bed warm and cozy, a book keeping me company. Peace is in the house like a best friend.
Monday musings and words of wisdom. Sometimes, life ain’t easy.
Life ain’t easy but as a friends mother always said, “life is good if you don’t weaken.” She was a wise woman.
Yes, she was very wise.
It’s true that leaving the cocoon or shelter is not easy or comfortable.
Got that right but life is wasted if lived forever in a cocoon.
I’m making a note. 🙂
