Blackbird: Take these broken wings and learn to fly!
In this new season of the podcast, beginning with Episode 29, I am singing you a song that I sing to my children at night when I'm putting them to sleep. After I share the song with you, I'll tell you the lesson that I hope to be teaching both myself and my children with the song and I hope it's a lesson that will resonate with you, too.
This beautiful Beatles song that I'm sharing with you today, Blackbird, is one of my favorite songs that I sing to my children at night when they're going to sleep. I've been singing it to them for years. I'm taking the time right now to slow down and to think about why this song is one of my favorite songs to come back to, and why this song holds a special place in my heart and feels like the message that I want to leave dancing around in their minds before they trail off to sleep.
Take these broken wings and learn to fly.
Isn't there something about all of us that at times feels broken and yet we can still learn to fly?
Having a broken wing, doesn't mean that you don't get to fly as a blackbird. You can still learn to fly and I want to teach my children that even though they feel that a part of them is broken or a part of them is struggling or having trouble with something, that they can still fly. I want them to know that they can still be who they want to be and do what they want to do.
I want them to understand that feeling broken is just part of the beautiful human experience. I feel broken sometimes too and leaning into that part of myself that may feel broken or down or not as in the zone as I like to feel, leaning into that and examining it and giving compassion to it, that's what allows us to learn to fly even while having a broken wing.
