Life on the Trapeze Means Letting Go | Summer of Self

by Cindy Ratzlaff

She wanted to fly and the only way to do that was to let go of one trapeze and stretch for the other. ~ Queenisms™

You cannot reach the other trapeze without letting go of the first one. We’ve all seen that girl on the flying trapeze. She’s amazing. And when she let’s go, she flies to that next trapeze and for a brief moment she is being supported by her faith that the next trapeze will appear and she’ll have the strength and coordination to grab it.

That’s what we all do whether we think about it that way or not.  We can’t reach that next dream without letting go of those belief’s that hold us firmly in place and don’t allow us to move forward.  I’m too old, I’m too fat, I’m not smart enough, I’m not brave enough…  Sound familiar? Or do you have another “I’m not” that creeps in when you want to let go and stretch for something new.

Let’s dare to let go of the first bar this week, Queens. And, let’s act as that safety net for one another.  Now go fly.

    Absolutely beautiful and inspiring. We seem to reach the “I’m not’ syndrome as time goes by. We get into a rut.

    Life on the trapeze has so much meaning and is very helpful to my present stage in life.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    You have given me courage with your words.

    Queen Robin, You had the courage all along and we just reminded you of your own strength. We’re so glad you are here.

    That trapeze metaphor really speaks to us too, Queen Bernadette. There’s a wonderful book by Gail Blanke called Between Trapezees that talks about this, too.
