As I looked for my next read, I decided to skip the classic business books I’m usually found enjoying and go for a little fiction. My mom gave me a book last year for my birthday titled “The Shack” by William P Young and I haven’t been able to put it down.
The story wrestles with the ideas of pain, forgiveness, family, faith, trust and love. One of my favourite learnings came from this passage:
Most birds were created to fly. Being grounded for them is a limitation within their ability to fly, not the other way around. … You, on the other hand, were created to be loved. So for you to live as if you were unloved is a limitation, not the other way around.
Or, in other words – don’t limit yourself by thinking you are unloved, or by not showing others love. You can choose to stay grounded, or you can choose to fly.
