the light inside

My friend Pam.  Outtake from the book.

I've come to believe that if you're fortunate, you'll come to a point where you'll be forced to take a look around and decide if you are living the life you really, truly, deep-in-your-soul want to live.

And if you're very fortunate, you'll notice the tiny spark inside of you that will refuse to be extinguished, that will become the inspiration to take that first, infinitesimally small step in the direction of living your most authentic life.  And you'll know that it's the right step because once you take it, you'll feel more alive, and the people who truly love you will see you come alive, and will do whatever it takes to help you take the next step, and then the next one, and then the next one.

Here's to sparks that light you up.
