Posts Tagged ‘fences’

Another Friday Wednesday, another photo challenge, this time with the theme of “Wish.”  Yikes!  Reading that stopped my short in my virtual tracks.  Of course, I wish for things like peace in the world, that killing would stop, that everyone were happy/had enough to eat/etc.  Most people wish for these things, for themselves if not for others.

While we need the fences that keep people from acting inappropriately or badly, each of us has fences that hold us back from a better life and from becoming a fulfilled person.

Today, I wish that each of us could see what fences us in, what keeps us from trying new things, from forgiving others, for dreaming and living our dreams.  What keeps us from being kind rather than angry, contented rather than always restless and searching?  Focus on these fences, then tear them down as soon as you can so you can live your life more profitably and impact the lives of others for the positive!

I almost forgot to include this wonderful song, sung here by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters, “Don’t Fence Me In.”
