the best advice I never got

Here’s something I wish someone had told me as I was beginning to figure out who I am and what I wanted to do with my life: 


There’s a fire within you.

Deep within you is this thing you'll discover:
a passion,
a love,
a talent, 
a voice, 
a purpose;
something that takes more energy to keep in than let out, 
something that brings you joy and makes you feel alive. 

Whatever you discover it to be, 
here's what you need to do: 
let it out. 

People will say you're not allowed, don't listen to them. 
People will tell you it's not right, don't believe to them.
People will try to put it out, don't let them. 

Share it.
Create it. 
Speak it.
Nourish it. 

Give yourselves permission to own your fire because here's the thing: 
the world needs it and that's where you'll find your life.
