Story

I have to say, as Nick and I sat here working on the card for this design, it quickly became an all time favorite for context alone. Here's the text we came up with for the back of the card:

"The beauty of flight is earned by the willingness to fall while learning."

I don't know about you but ever since I was young, I always wished I could fly. When I was around 6 years old, I remember watching a David Copperfield special on TV in which he laid down on the ground, crossed his arms across his chest and began to levitate. I was so enamored with this that after the show was done, I remember walking to my bedroom and asking my mom if it was okay to lay down in the hallway and try to fly like David had. As I lay there, I crossed my arms tightly and closed my eyes, ready to feel the magic. 

I opened my eyes - my mom was staring down at me with a smile on her face. 

"Maybe next time!"

My mom has always been optimistic like that growing up - even when she knew it was a long shot, she still was encouraging. Come to think of it, that's a quality she learned from my grandmother - and one of the reasons I really adored them both so much. There's something to be said about the person who's always uplifting, always encouraging you - they're like a ray of sunshine every time you're around them, warming you up to the idea that yes, anything is possible. 

My hope for you, with this wonderful Strap, is that it encourages you as my mom and my grandmother did for me. That it inspires you to take that leap of faith as you pursue whatever it is that makes you happy, no matter how crazy it may be. Just like a bird learning to fly - it only seems impossible until it's done. 


Big Hugs!
