Mind Up!

Bootstraps oh bootstraps You give me such trouble I give you my strength Lift me up on the double I find I am climbing Look at me lift away So much for the doubters I am flying today!

Bootstraps oh bootstraps
You give me such trouble
I give you my strength
Lift me up on the double
I find I am climbing
Look at me lift away
So much for the doubters
I am flying today!

Most of us have heard the impossible phrase, “to pull oneself up by their bootstraps.” It makes us pause to wonder how do we do this. It’s like jumping straight up one foot, then when we get there, keep jumping up another foot, so as to climb up higher and higher. This impossible task is what we have to accomplish in our own growth. We lift ourselves up on our own accord. How? We do this by first believing we can. I pause. I reflect. I choose to succeed. I “mind up”. I refuse to wallow. If I have to, I can get angry at the forces dragging me down and set a boundary to them. Then I bless them when I break free and fly. Bootstrap yourself. Go deeper, go higher. Don’t give in, mind up!
