In this life if you want to survive you have to grow, test boundaries and work hard for what you want. To face down your hardships you need fuel, you need food, you need whatever it takes to keep your heart and mind nourished.
Some weeks ago I was down, lost and depressed. I was lost in the moment and angry, lonely and in desperate need to grow, survive and to thrive. I felt imprisoned within my own home, I was lonely and bored. I felt healthy for the first time in ages and I was stuck where I was. It felt like my feet were encased in a block of cement.
I was on the phone with a close friend of mine Darnel. He reminded me that I have everything I need right in front of me. If getting healthy is what I needed, then I could do all the exercises I needed from the safety of my home. I could read and research and that I had the ability to accomplish anything as long as I set my mind to it.
Sometimes all we need is that spark, a small flame to reignite the pilot light of our heart. It is a powerful thing to witness how much influence such a small spark can have on the human soul.
