June 2016 #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - #MavenMoments

I belong to a writers group and we have a challenge to post every day of the month.  I'm on the money so far posting to Instagram/Facebook but I thought I'd catch these up here on my blog. We choose an image and then write to go along with it. 

The challenge is called #bornwithwings inspired from a line in a poem by the Jelaluddin Rumi, the 13th century mystic poet, who was truly one of the most passionate and profound poets in history.  Now, today his presence still remains strong, due in part to how his words seem to drip of the divine, and startle a profound remembrance that links all back to the Soul-Essence.  Born in what is present day Afghanistan in 1207, he produced his master work the Masnawi which consists of over 60,000 poems before he died in 1273.  

The excerpt that we are to be inspire by is: 

"You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."

The habit of daily writing is a great exercise in getting the juices flowing and being able to "produce" something every day. For a marketer this is key as we are often asked to produce in that very moment. Keeping your writing and inspiration skills sharp keep you agile and ready when the call to "be creative" comes.

I'd love to hear any feedback or questions you have and if you are inspired to write your own use the hashtag #bornwithwings and tag me or let me know.
