how do you open closed doors?For years my dream has been to fly. Everyday since I can remember I had my eyes to the sky, I'd reach out as if I could touch those beautiful, magnificent metal birds int he sky but it was never possible.
And, as I grew...I got my first ever Introductory flight, withy hands at that controls, I felt free, I felt at home truly for the first time! The speed, the skills, the amazing abilities of both the plane and the pilot just filled me and I realised at that moment that ' wow. this is for me. This is what I should be doing, this is what I need to do. What I want to do'. At that moment I fell in love, aviation truly became my world....
It was a world I struggled daily to try and enter.
And yet, another year passes and Im stranded, stuck. How do I do it? How do I get in? How do I open closed doors?
Since that day when I was 18 I knew I had to fly and now, at 23 I still know that it is my world, my future job.
But how Do I get there?
On a trip to find myself, I ended up in Frankfurt Flugha
One step at a timeI spent the year thinking about you,
And now, on that anniversary you hardly pass my mind.
I've spent the year through hell,
Learning to live, learning who I am.
I find I still don’t know who I am,
I don’t know where I want to be,
But, I do know that I did the right thing.
I look the open door in the face,
Going through it was the toughest decision to make.
Two weeks from now and a new journey begins,
Closing behind the doors to the life I knew.
Last year, I wanted to run away.
This year, I am running away.
I’m taking the chances, the opportunities.
I’m leaving what I know, to start anew.
Of course, this dream won’t last forever,
Half a year from now, reality will be there for me to face.
For now though, I’ll take it one step at a time.
