As a child I participated in a theatrical production about fire. The production has three movements. At one point we danced around a pile of TVs on stage to represent a large bonfire. Later we were asked to escape a burning building. When asked what I would take from my home in a fire I quickly answered car keys. Apparently at 8 years old I was going to drive away from that burning mess.

What’s the point?
Have you ever had those moments where you wonder why you’re doing something?
You take a moment and think, no one cares, no one wants this, no one notices this.
That’s when you have to look inside and ask, why? Is this for you or is it to please others. Now is a great time to stop, reassess and find compromise.
The world is full of characters but, life is much more complicated than a story. You might feel like your life is the A story line, or sometimes the B. But, there are no storylines, only a woven tapestry of events both complicated and simplified by the actions of others.
Sometimes, it is okay to feel out of control. Sometimes, it is okay to say goodbye. Sometimes you must walk away from what was and walk into what will be. We have all tried to hide away for as long as we can but, one day we must confront the truth and come to the realization that our world is illuminated by the light we cast.
It’s okay to be bored, in fact it’s a good thing sometimes. If this global pandemic and social isolation has taught me anything, it’s that I need to take some time to sit in my solitude and find my passion again.
