At times, out of fear of the unknown, we hold ourselves hostage as we hold on far too long to things that have ceased to work.
Those relationships that leave us ill instead of enriching our lives, no satisfaction from jobs that drain us while on the highway to nowhere, a lifestyle that has gone bankrupt and done more harm than good…there are so many crooked lines.
For as long as we hold onto those crooked lines, we don’t free our hands to draw and hold on to better ones.
It’s not always that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. A bird in hand might peck your hands bloody and finish your seeds, yet it’s neither singing nor hatching meaningful stuff.
Sometimes, not holding a bird for a while might be a better deal. It opens your mind to think on how to go after the two in the bush.
