Find YOUR Feathers

 

The other day, I was reading Handbook for Dragon Slayers by Merrie Haskell and something came up. The book was talking about, what I think was a fairytale of sorts, and it was talking about, you know what, I'm just gonna retell the whole story here.

So, there's a swan maiden, and she has these magical feathers that she uses to, basically, shape-shift into a swan. But she's beautiful in her human form. So this guys finds her, and he's really atracted to her. So he takes her feathers, and basically forces her to marry him. He basically controlls her life from then on.

After a few years, the swan maiden finds her feathers. She takes them, and she flies away. And I don't know whether it was because she was angry at him or what, it didn't say.

But I know that if I were the swan maiden, I would fly away because it would be a chance for me to make my own choice. I would fly away because it was my chance to make my own decision. And that's enough for me.

So whether or not you feel trapped, free, or whatever, find your feathers. Make your own choices. (within reason). And don't be afraid to take risks. I mean, that guy could have decided to follow the swan maiden, right? And she probrally knew that was a possiblility, but she took the risk anyway.

 

So Find YOUR Feathers.
