We all have fire within us. We all have that one thing that makes us spark. It's a glow, a flicker, something that if you would let it ignite, it would change your entire life.
But how do we let that spark ignite? What causes to go from a flame... to a fire?
I have so many causes. I want to share my love of writing to other kids, encourage people that it's okay to be themselves, eradicate social injustice, stop animal abuse, educate people about what's going on in the world, discover new religions, and spread love to every being on this earth.
I want to create a future for the human race that's so divine and wonderful, so peaceful and blissful, that every being can live in harmony without worrying about injustices, racism, sexism, homophobia.
For the perfect world will not be one in which everyone is the same, but it will be one in which that we are all different, yet love each other nonetheless.
And if I concentrate hard enough, on this big, bright, amazing future, I levitate just a little bit off the ground.
That's the fire that fulfills me. It causes me to lift my face into a smile, it causes me to reach out to other people regardless of their race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. It causes me to look up at the stars and imagine that one day, human kind will reach them.
You too, can find your fire. Dig deep enough and you can find it, in every single person on earth.
Look around. There are people in your life that help build your fire. They're there for a reason. They're the people that when you think about them, a smile spreads across your face and you feel just a bit better about life.
There are experiences that shape your fire, that build it up even higher. For me, there are a few. A leadership summit in which each girl had a fire, a conference that lead me to achieving one of my dreams of making a difference in the lives of teens like myself.
What's your fire?
