First Flight! Actually, it is first jump. Baby ducks (or any baby bird, for that matter) cannot fly. But birds stay in the nest til they can fly, ducks drop down into the water or ground and go from there.
You are not your past actions. You are not your past failures. You are not how others have at one time treated you. You are only who you think you are right now, in this moment. You are only what you do right now in this moment.
