You're just a spark of light aren't you? Yes, you are! And Bruce Springsteen knew it too. Remember him singing 'You can't start a fire without a spark'? So true! I too have no doubt at all about your sprinkling sparkle-ness. Start to sprinkle your spark and it will ignite many other fires.
All by my self…
There I was. Twelve-year-old-me. Repeatedly listening to a prerecorded Springsteen live show. I was a sucker for his words. What incredible life experience did Bruce have to have gathered such wisdom? I could drink it. To the last drop. Finally somebody understood me.
I wanted desperately to share this ‘Bruce-moment’ with someone. Those days I had no kindred spirits around to dive into his words of truth. Like finding the best picknick spot ever. And having no one to share it with. Meh..Sucks.
But it lit a fire in me that is still there!
Find your spark and set things on fire!
Maybe you’ve found it already. Maybe you still keep it hidden? Sometimes low self confidence can do that. Would you believe me when I say that there's certainly a sunny side to that? Your spark is waiting to come out and ignite a life-changing fire. For you. And for everyone around you.
That spark is your power to be who you are. And to do what’s close to your heart. You are a spark of inspiration. Enthusiasm. Creation. Loveliness. Brightness. A spark of light.
So. This is the right time.
You and I are sharing a small part of his wisdom. From the master himself. You really can't start a fire without a spark! I’ve used these words as a personal mantra ever since I was twelve.
Is it something you can believe in? Or want to believe in? Print it. Use it as your bookmark. Pin it on your fridge. Stuff it in your wallet. Or just keep it under your pillow and let the sprinkling dust give you energy to make life wonderful.
