stoke the embers

a few weeks ago i was deliberating where i was in this life. i kept asking myself “what is going to light my fire?”

like most of us, i contemplated my path …i waffled, wondered and wavered. conversations rewound themselves and replayed. amidst the questions and qualms i found myself taking a step back. i gave myself permission to take things day by day, moment by moment.

what was going to light my fire? and at the precipice of this chasm, when i was wading into a sea of doubt, i realized my fire was lit. the burning embers were smouldering, not dying out, not gone, but burning steadily waiting to be fanned.

the deliberations and the examinations are part of the journey.  the thoughts zinging in my head are contemplative, explorative and suggest the tides of change are coming. i’m embracing this time–this is not tumultuous instead  it’s a ‘shake-up.’

right now i am stoking the embers.  i am sure the fire is coming.

have you ever faltered before you’ve flown?

About ithinkinwords

i love common sense and innovation. the trails, mountains and oceans are magic. i run a little, have recently taken up mountain biking and find bliss in yoga. getting outside everyday and moving is a must! sometimes when i am driving i look into the rearview and think how did i get here? -- last time i looked i was 17 and crossing my fingers my VW had enough gas. well it got me here.
