You don’t need wings to fly - - only a free mind! Liberate yourself from all the physical and emotional baggage that is weighing you down. Allow the warrior within you to guide your soul. And if what you wear gives you some momentum- - wear it with style, confidence and fly away! pic.twitter.com/6AjGFJxzTL
