"This Bald Eagle was drawn in November 2012, when my youngest son was 9 years old"
One of my favorite birds is an Eagle and I came across this Article Online and I can't seem to relocate it, the author listed "Attributes of An Eagle" the list was quite extensive and I pulled the ones that I thought applied to WHY these attributes inspire me on my personal journey.
I will list the Attributes and I included what they represent to me.
Attributes of An Eagle
THEY ARE MASTER FLIERS
A Master Flyer represents to me knowing when to SOAR and when to FLY Higher to Rise Above the Storm
THEY FLY ALONE AND LIVE ON HIGHER GROUND
I would use the word "LEADER" not a follower, always FOCUSED on Reaching Higher Ground
EAGLES ARE EXTREMELY BOLD, COURAGEOUS, MAJESTIC and POWERFUL
This speaks for itself!
EAGLES ARE VERY PATIENT
I see this as having Vision with a Destination in Sight, which includes a Quiet Wisdom of recognizing and knowing that PATIENCE is a REQUIRED Attribute to Move Along the Journey
The boats to turn back have been burned, there is no retreat, You and I are GOING TO HIGHER GROUND.
From my heart to yours,
Like the Eagle, we find the strength within, we GET VISION, WE SEEK PURPOSE, WE STAY FOCUSED on the Destination in SIGHT. One area that I've had to learn and continually Press Forward to accomplish and that is to GET GOING, BE A DOER, BE CONSISTENT (a biggie) and continue to MOVE FORWARD.
