The 54th Deadline: Sparks & More Sparks

Lately, I have been feeling “powerless” at my worst. It’s a strange thing to say when I realize a lot of real power is knowing you have both the capabilities and (more importantly) the willpower to make it happen.

I am constantly counting my blessings. I have a lot of things to my name that others can’t say they have. Things aren’t perfect, but things also aren’t the worst. As long as I can take a breath with these lungs of mine, I still can keep going. Forward. Forward. Always forward…

That’s the aim, anyway.

I am always thinking of different ideas. I am always looking for that “spark” that will be “it.” They may not be all winners in this sense, yet I will never know unless I keep attempting to make them work.

Throw what I can at the wall. See what sticks. I don’t have the luxury of experimenting forever. I need to become bolder, braver and, above all else, more determined than ever to make all of this happen.

Sparks. More sparks. And more sparks on top of it all!
