I feel like a kid again...
I had forgotten what is was like to live with eyes wide exploring my own world around me. As a child I always saw things a little different than most. I pretty much stayed to myself because I never felt like I "fit in". As an adult I was beginning to starve out my creativity. I had been so overcome by the stresses of life and being an "adult" that the flame was slowly dying.
Recently, something ignited my flame and instead of quenching it I decided to try to keep it burning. We often allow our "flames" to be put out by others or by circumstances. I am guilty of this more than I care to admit. I don’t fully understand why we do that. I could go into all the psychological mumbo jumbo but the reality is we have a choice.
We can either choose to kill the flame and kill who we are meant to be or we can kindle the fire and burn with passion for what path is laid out for us.
