“Teach Me to Fly” – Painting by Mara Friedman

I am grateful today for the blessing of time with girlfriends. I had lunch with my wonderful friend Diane (see also Patting My Heart for Diane and Filling Petals with Sunshine) and had the abundant joy of meeting one of her friends, Tanya, a lovely spirit.

I had dinner with my “Chakra Group” which is always a comforting and cathartic evening of friendship and love. Maybe it’s the season…I am feeling the power my friends have to transform me and my life.

Today I awoke feeling like a brave transformer whose roots go deep and whose spirit soars so high.



About Vicki Flaherty

I feel most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing and poetry, gardening and photography, or simply living my life each day. Running and yoga enrich my being. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. I share my gratitude for all the gifts in my life on my This Abundantly Delicious Life blog. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. I try to encourage Leading with Intention at my blog of this name. As a breast cancer survivor, I found comfort and hope in writing. Poetry flowed through me like a river of healing during my diagnosis and treatment, which I share on my Mostly My Heart Sings blog, that I might offer encouragement and a place of grace and heart for those seeking comfort and hope along their journey.

  1. What a beautiful post and I want I chakra group too! Living lightly and grounded in Mother Earth is exactly how we learn to fly.

    • Karen, oh, and everyone should have their form of Chakra Group – friends that hold you when you are falling and lift you further up when you are soaring ( oh, yeah, and cook delicious foods and create a sense of delicious peace in the world. Wishing you that feeling…
