Day 18 of 365; Inner Fire
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark…. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.” ~ Ayn Rand
You deserve to live the greatest life,.. the life you desire.
We all have within us an inner fire, a spark, ..a light that shines bright when we are most happy. Don’t let that fire go out… keep in mind what it was in the first place that lit that fire in your heart, in your soul and use that as the motivation to keep going in life, even if what created that fire is no longer present, it is memories that can still keep a fire alive inside of you to keep you pushing forward.
Stop and look at not only where you are going, but where you have been-many people say don’t look behind you, and move on….. but I say, turn around a took a look at how far you have come (or are coming) and use your past to help you shape your future into what you have always wanted and desired.
If something is missing in your life and you no longer feel that burning fire in your heart, listen to your heart, pray, and find what it is that you are longing for, and pursue that.. follow that dream, light that inner fire again. . . . . because you truly deserve to have your inner fire lit, and to have it burn strong.
Go on an adventure, tell someone you love them, chase your dreams…. just make sure to do whatever it takes to keep that inner flame going along the way.
This post was inspired by a candle I lit while editing photos this evening… something about fire, a flame..that really calms me and makes me stop and watch the flicker of the wick ..and creates a sense of peace in my heart, calms me and allows my mind to be clear and that creates time for me to think. If you are longing for some inspiration, go light one (or many) candles .. sit and reflect … and get that inner fire going again!!! 🙂
Good night world… Tomorrow brings another full day of editing photos and updating my Photo Galleries!
More quotes for today;
“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” ~Albert Schweitzer
“May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand. May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May you discover enough goodness in others to believe in a world of peace. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them. Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending. “
