"you can't change the world from the rear view mirror."

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you

-David Whyte, poet

WHOA. I seriously opened my copy of The Fire Starter Sessions by Danielle Laporte, did a little intro skim like I do, and these were the first words that popped out to me. I hadn't even gotten into the numbered pages yet. We are talking a Roman numeral epiphany over here people.

Laporte has some spunk let me tell ya, and she would like to help us get to the core of our truest desires. Desires in our personal lives, desires in our careers, in our finances, in our relationships. Laporte says, "your most valuable currency is what comes most naturally to you." For once, how about we take a moment and look at ourselves, who we are, what we want, and stop trying to be someone else. Take what we have and turn it into something amazing. The Fire Starter Sessions has 16 Sessions that focus on a different type of philosophy for becoming who you really are. Who that person is, is up to you. Your life purpose is whatever you say it is. You don't have to explain yourself to anyone. We get so wrapped up in feeling what we think we are supposed to feel, that we don't allow ourselves to feel what's real.

Rant over, but I am going to leave you with this, "it's often best to do the opposite of what your fear is telling you to do." Yeah, you should probably buy the book, it's full of advice like that.
